It’s almost time for the 36th Annual International Christian Visual Media Catalyst Conference.
Titled “For Such a Time,” the event will take place at the Airport Westin Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia from July 6-9.
According to a news release from International Christian Visual Media (ICVM), keynote speakers include Josh McDowell, Anne Graham Lotz, K.P. Yohannan, and Phil Vischer. Seminars are scheduled for producers, distributors, writers and actors, taught by experts such as Dr. Ted Baehr, Larry Frenzel, Dr. Linda Seger and Kevin Miller.
“This is a very unique time in history where we are seeing dramatic things throughout the world. We need wisdom to know how to rise up and meet new challenges as we continue to demonstrate to a lost and dying world that Christ Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords,” said Chris Rogers, ICVM president, speaking in a news release.
Some of the highlights of the conference include the second annual film festival, the Crown Awards, and the Media Center Exhibits. There is also a group outing to Stone Mountain Park for networking in a fun and relaxed environment.
According to the news release, for writers and actors, one of the highlights of ICVM is the scene shop on July 8, where writers will have the opportunity to have their selected scenes read by professional actors in attendance.
Those wishing to submit a script or to sign up as an actor/actress willing to read, need to email Barbara Sundstrom at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All scenes must be submitted for review by June 1, and should be family friendly in content.
ICVM also provides on-site networking, prayer and worship opportunities. The news release said participants can expect to interact with like-minded Christians, and leave the conference “refreshed and inspired.”
For ICVM members, the early bird registration fee (by May 31) is $395.00. For non-members, it is $495.00. There are also special rates for employees/spouses, and day rates.
