Young filmmakers Tim Bex, Joris Baestaens and Gill Vallons have created a nine-minute film about their inspiring stay with the Findhorn Foundation community as part of their graduation project for the Journalism department of the Thomas More College in Belgium.

To gain a more intimate understanding of the enduring appeal of the celebrated Ecovillage, spiritual community and centre of learning, they attended Experience Week at Cluny Hill and then interviewed a number of residents the following week.

“We came from Belgium without big expectations and without exactly knowing what the Findhorn Foundation was,” they recalled. “It was a very nice experience and something we’ll remember from Experience Week is how you meet total strangers from different countries and after a few days they don’t feel like strangers anymore. They are friends.

“It’s wonderful how the environment of the Findhorn Foundation can make such a connection between strangers.”

As a thank you they are sharing the gift of their unique film.
