The Noorderlicht Photofestival is scheduled for 16 September – 28 October 2007. This year's main theme is Act of Faith, and the festival is held in Groningen.
Over 130 photographers from all over the world will exhibit their work on faith and conflict, ecstasy and excess. The festival will delve in such topical issues as is faith permissible? Or is faith compulsory? How sacred is the line separating church and state today, long the unquestioned foundation of Western democracy? How firm is the theory of evolution? How conceivable is unbelief?
