We are thrilled to announce the nominees of our third annual Spirit Film Festival

Spirit is the activating principle of conscious life, the vital essence animating the body and mediating between body and soul. Spirit completes us, gives us purpose and presence. Spirit is what connects us to other human beings, to other sentient beings, to nature, and to other realms.

We also know spirit as a presence or attitude that pervades a thought, a feeling, or an experience. That’s the Spirit!

Conscious Good’s Spirit Film Festival is a celebration of spirit, spirituality, inspiration, relationships, and consciousness.

Watch all of the nominated the films below and be sure to vote for your favorite!

“Spiritual formation is for everyone. Just as there is an ‘outer you’ that is being formed and shaped all the time, like it or not, by accident or on purpose, so there is an ‘inner you.’ You have a spirit. And it’s constantly being shaped and tugged at: by what you hear and watch and say and read and think and experience.”
