THORNHILL, ONT. - The youth ministry at St. Joseph the Worker parish wants to know what awaits society when the new generation rises up to ignite a revolution of love. And they’re hoping people under the age of 30 will show them at the first annual St. Joseph’s Short Film Festival.

Youth are asked to make a film, about five to seven minutes long, with the theme A Revolution of Love.

The film festival is aimed at encouraging youth to employ their creativity, experience and knowledge with a media they’re familiar with into a concrete expression of what it means to follow Christ, said Vladimir Mamaradlo, lay pastoral assistant at St. Joseph the Worker parish in Thornhill, Ont.

The top 10 films will be shown at the St. Joseph’s Short Film Festival on June 4. First prize is $500, second prize is $250 and third prize is $100. There will also be a people’s choice award.

The deadline for entries is May 14. For more information, see www.stjw.ca/stjosff or e-mail stjosff@stjw.ca.
