Today, the International Association of Jesuit
Universities (IAJU), in collaboration with the General Curia in Rome,
launches the “Four Dreams Jesuit Film Contest” an opportunity for students
at Jesuit universities or university colleges globally to enlighten the
world with their creativity, skills and production talents.
We would like to know who, in the eyes of our
students, is already making a difference in the world and the lives of
others. That is, who is already a hero, making an impact in one of these four preferential
fields. The challenge is for students to present one person or a group of persons
and the contributions that they are making to improve our lives on this planet
in a SHORT FILM.
Registration for students will open on Wednesday 3
November and all films must be submitted by 1 May 2022. Students can participate
individually or in groups.
There will be one winner
from each Universal Apostolic Preference
and one overall contest winner, five winners in all. Winners will receive a
monetary award – described in the contest rules – and their institution will
receive a set of communications tools for their film and communications
program. Winning films will be presented to Father General Arturo Sosa and the
leaders of Jesuit universities on 3 August 2022 at the IAJU General Assembly that
will take place at Boston College.
