Interfaith/Interfilm is a film series co-sponsored by Hamilton College and the Interfaith Coalition of Greater Utica and hosted at Munson-Williams-Proctor Art Institute. The springtime series aims to create a productive, safe space to experience and discuss the confluences and clashes of religious traditions and to create a public forum for thinking about the place of religion in public life today. This is particularly important in a city such as Utica, which has seen wave after wave of immigrant communities settle in, bringing their own religious traditions and sacred spaces, and thus establishing a uniquely diverse religious community.
All films will be held on the last Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. from February through May and are free and open to the public. Each screening will be followed by a brief response by a member of a local religious community, offering leading suggestions and questions about the religious implications of the film. This will be followed by an open conversation among audience members.
