Many films about religious freedom have been shown in cinemas, one of which is a film entitled The Earth is Spherical.

The film entitled "Semu" as a short film is able to depict the self-image of a teenager on social media nicely. A common social context in modern times where many people are accustomed to using smartphones and social media as part of their daily routine. On the other hand, the film Semu depicts that existence on social media is often important for individuals who want to portray a different image of themselves than they really are. This article finds that content and activities on social media are the main elements in shaping the online existence of a person or entity on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other media. So falsehood on social media is a phenomenon where individuals or entities present information, images or identities that are inaccurate or do not correspond to reality via social media platforms. In this context, dramaturgy refers to theoretical analysis used in theater and performance studies to understand and dismantle false identities in cyberspace. The impact is that the public does not trust someone's activities on social media. Photos and videos can easily be used to manipulate netizens, their dismantling results in distrust of the images and content that someone continues to produce.</p> Zulfikar Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Religion and Film 2023-06-28 2023-06-28 2 1 224 244 Islam dan Film Horor: Membentengi Individu dengan Keimanan dalam Film Qodrat <p>This research attempts to look at the Islamic side in horror films which are often misused, including in the film entitled Qodrat. The film Qodrat is a horror film that tells the story of the rukiah ability of a ustadz in eliminating irregularities by a ustadz in a village. This research was conducted using a content analysis approach. Look directly at the text in the Qodrat film to obtain relevant data. The results of this research show that Islam in the film Qodrat is represented by two characters or actors, namely a cleric named Jakfar who deviates from Islamic teachings and a cleric named Qodrat who firmly stands on Islamic teachings. Jakfar is a deviant from Islamic teachings behind religious clothes, Islamic boarding schools and the label of ustadz to take material advantage by making alliances with jinns to possess village residents. He received compensation that a cleric should not receive in curing people from being possessed by jinns and demons through rukiah. On the other hand, Qodrat is a religious figure who upholds Islamic beliefs in living his life and is not thirsty for material things. He believes that rukiyah is charity and it is their duty as religious leaders and is given the advantage of expelling jinn from the human body (rukiah).</p> Ahmad Munirul Hakim Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Religion and Film 2023-06-30 2023-06-30 2 1 245 258 Sosialisasi Spirit Perdamaian: Potensi Kampanye Pesan Toleransi dalam Film <p>This research aims to explore and analyze the potential of a tolerance message campaign through the medium of film as a tool to disseminate the spirit of peace.
