Finding Vince 400” is the final initiative of the Vincentian Jubilee Year that celebrates the 400th anniversary of the birth of the Vincentian Charism. Globalizing charity, one of the recurring themes of the Jubilee, will be expressed through the medium of cinema. This insight gave rise to the idea of organizing an International Film Festival where the main protagonist is the figure of Saint Vincent de Paul and his love for those living in poverty. The coordinator of the event, which will take place at Castel Gandolfo from 18 to 21 October 2018, will be US actor Clarence Gilyard, known to the general public for having played in the television series, Walker, Texas Ranger, among others, and in many successful films including Top Gun.

The goal of the Festival is to stimulate creativity around the theme of the globalization of charity. “Finding Vince 400” is an invitation to develop stories and spread the message of globalized charity through the art of modern storytelling.
