The Baha'i Faith

The Harmony Film Festival is inspired by the teachings of the Baha'i Faith – one of the world’s youngest global religions. Founded in the 1800s in Persia (modern Iran) by its prophet-founder Baha’u’llah, the faith is now present in virtually every corner of the world.

The Baha'i’ Faith in Australia comprises people from all backgrounds and walks of life. Inspired by belief in the oneness of humanity, the oneness of religion and the oneness of God, Baha'i’s come together for devotional, community and humanitarian activities in all parts of the country.

It is these fundamental principles that provide the animating force for the festival and guide its aims.
