Faith and Film Festival (Virtual)
Please join us for the second annual Faith and Film Festival, a gathering to screen and ponder Christian themes in contemporary cinema. The 2021 event will be held online. Geared toward people interested in film and theology, the festival serves as an opportunity for participants to explore Christian themes in movies and develop eyes to see film in new ways.
Festival goers will view a selection of film and engage in enriching discussions with theologians, pastors, filmmakers and critics. The 2021 event will include 12 feature length films, four short films and six documentaries.
Participants will view all of the films before the festival except the short films scheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, and 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29.
