Channel 8 is one of the best channels available on the Israeli cable network HOT. The channel airs mostly documentaries, science shows, history and culture-related films, and the like.
Now, Flix is an Israeli social network revolving around videos — sort of like the Israeli version of YouTube.
This morning I learned that Flix and Channel 8 are joining forces in order to create the first Israeli communal documentary. The subject: My relationship with God.
How is it done? Very simple. Flix users are invited to upload video clips in which they talk about God, and about “What God means for me”. It doesn’t have to be a short speech. You can sing, dance, or film anything that is related to the subject. And if you don’t have a webcam, then you email Flix and their crew might even come to film you at home.
Obviously not all submissions will make it to the final cut. This depends on the director and the editors. Nevertheless, it’s a wonderful chance to share with the world your view on God.
The result will air on Channel 8, and will also be sent to film festivals around the world. And although this isn’t an original idea, I have to say it is very intriguing, and I’d love to watch the movie when it is ready.
