There are so many cool upcoming Catholic media events that I wanted to highlight them here for you:
JP2 Inter-Faith Film Festival
The upcoming JP2 Inter-Faith Film Festival, held in Miami, FL, from October 8-17, 2015, is coming up! If you love films and want to support the development of faith-based films, this is a great endeavor to get involved in and spread the word about. I’m delighted to share the news that our very own Media Apostle: The Father James Alberione Story will be screening at the festival this fall! For more information, visit their gofundme site, or their film festival site. Here you can find a listing of films in the festival this year. Here is a little more about the festival from their website:
The JP2 Inter-Faith Film Festival (formerly the John Paul II International Film Festival) has been a sensation since its 2009 inauguration. Inspired by John Paul II’s letter to artists (read it HERE) and his inter-religious and unifying efforts, the festival has screened over 125 films (156 if you include our upcoming lineup!) that uphold human dignity and explore the undeniable human journey that defines us.
Chicago Premiere of Media Apostle: the James Alberione Story
For those living near Chicago, here’s an announcement about the free premiere screening of my favorite documentary of 2015! (Note that admission is free, but a reservation is needed!)
The Catholic Writers Guild Annual Writers Retreat!
The Catholic Writers’ Guild is offering their retreat for writers this year. Personally, I would love to go to this some year. Check it out if you need wonderful writing fellowship and a writing get-away!
And finally, time is winding down for registration for our Communicators Arts Professional Retreat. If you are interested, make sure you check it out today! (Feel free to email me with questions.)
