National Film Board of Canada Launches ‘The Faith Project’ iPad App

The Faith Project has been launched for iPad by the National Film Board of Canada, an interactive app that “offers a unique and intimate look at how seven young Canadians from different backgrounds weave faith into their daily lives.” The app and website offer supplemental content for users, in an interactive and immersive way.

The app was directed by Chris Romeike and written by Shiraz Janjua, in collaboration with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF), to offer users “a deeper understanding of the diverse face of religion in Canada today.”

NFB producer Lea Marin said in a statement “Our hope is that The Faith Project will provide an opening for a much needed conversation about identity, tolerance, and acceptance in Canada, and the world around us.”
