And the winner is…

A Galileo-inspired vision of faith and science.

This is where science meets faith–and coexists! Contestants were challenged to create a short film (4 min. or less) starting a conversation about science and faith and win $3000 in cash, and a national traveling showcase at Veritas Forums at college campuses across the U.S! The inaugural jury included John Shepherd, producer of “The Stoning of Soraya M” and John David Ware, creator of the 168 Film Project. Sponsored by The Veritas Forum.
