ISKCON Leicester is hosting Leicester’s first Inter-Faith Film Festival to coincide with Inter Faith Week 2019.
The film festival which is a unique way for people to learn about and discuss faith, will also screen Yadubara and Visakha prabhu’s documentary ‘Hare Krsna! The Mantra, the Movement and the Swami Who Started It All’.
Each night, a film linked to one of the City’s main faiths will be shown in the Presentation Suite at City Hall. A limited number of 60 free tickets will be available, using the Eventbrite link (below).
After each film, a representative of the faith will lead a panel discussion on any questions and comments that might have been raised from the film. Light refreshments will also be served each evening.
