Known for its cornfields and cold climates, the American Midwest is also becoming home to a budding independent Christian film industry. As independent Christian filmmakers prepare for a year of changing history, Crystal Creek Media is excited to host a film forum for aspiring artists and enthusiastic entrepreneurs. The Midwest Christian Filmmakers’ Forum promises to be enlightening, encouraging, and entertaining.
From the coffee shops of London to the silver screens of Los Angelos, media has played a prominent role in defining culture throughout the last century. For the past several decades the cost of entry into the film industry was an almost impregnable barrier. However, recent advances in technology have opened this door of opportunity. Eager artists and world-changers excitedly prepare to transform the mission-field of entertainment.
The Midwest Christian Filmmakers’ Forum will provide a venue for drawing together artists in this geographical region. From score-writers to sound technicians, directors to producers, this event will bring together many individuals with the talents necessary to create high-quality, culturally-relevant entertainment. Each entrepreneur will have the opportunity to share his or her vision, projects, and talents.
Christian filmmakers are not alone in this epic endeavor; the Midwest Christian Filmmakers’ Forum will provide an opportunity for encouraging and being encouraged by fellow filmmakers. According to Kathleen Knudsen, the Director of Operations for Crystal Creek Media, “Encouragement inspires ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary deeds.” Join Crystal Creek Media for the opportunity to network with other like-minded leaders!
Upcoming Event – August 3, 2013
Our February event was a huge success! With David Austin of Bridgestone Multimedia speaking on what it takes to get your film to your target market, many filmmakers commented on how much they learned. Someone even remarked, “If I had known this three years ago, I would have made a different movie!”
The next Filmmakers Forum is tentatively scheduled for August 3, 2013. We invite you to join us for another great event!
