But first… What is this Festival in the midst of WYD?
The Youth Festival is part of the planned events that will take place during World Youth Day (WYD) in Panama 2019.
Its purpose is to bring together young people from all over the world through sharing their artistic talent, and experiences of faith and life. This is art at the service of faith.
Each artist presents their reality. These expressions will lead to a variety of artistic, musical, theatrical events like art exhibits and more.
The festival is free and open to the public. It’s a space for cultural exchange.
Every culture is unique and different yet they all come together through faith.
THE IÑIGO FILM FESTIVAL
The view of faith in the seventh art
“The cinema serves to overcome distance and acquires that dignity particular to culture which is a specific dimension of the existence and being of man. It creates among the persons within each community a complex of bonds, determining the interpersonal and social character of human existence" - Saint John Paul II
The shows of the seventh art will also be activities that you can enjoy during the Youth Festival. Short films are also voices and images of the Gospel proclamation.
In the Youth Festival, you will find theatrical scenes about faith, life, and works of Saints and Blesseds of our times, and many more. It is a moment to inspire you with all that we have prepared for you. Check out the program and the agenda of the days so that you can go to see them with your group.
This is a festival that educates, inspires, and motivates you to listen to movements, ministries, and projects at the service of others that you can enjoy through talks and conversations. We also want to hear your voice! Get to know the locations and days during the Youth Festival here.
The WYD 2019 Cup is a friendly competition of soccer, part of the Youth Festival, and it will be held during WYD Panama 2019.
