Open Letter from the Executive Director
Hope your summer was wonderful! We are back in the office planning for 2018. But before we detail the year’s events, we wanted to let you all to know how much we have appreciated your continued support and encouragement over these last 10 years. It has meant so much to us. We continue to see the same sweet faces (and a few new ones) and get to know you all a bit.
This year we will be doing things a little differently. Last Spring we did not raise the amount of funding needed to continue to host a competitive film fest the way we have been. And so we find ourselves without the necessary funding to begin the process of planning for the 2018 festival. So we’ve decided not to host the competitive festival for 2018. If you would like us to continue to have festivals in the future, please consider donating.
Instead, we will do a few screenings in partnership with Spirit 105.9 at a few of their Concert Series events. This is great fun for us as many, many more folks will be able to view our films and enjoy a night of Praise Music and Worship. So watch for that schedule coming in mid September
We will also continue our monthly Attic Newsletter, listing Upcoming Events, Recommended Films, New release Info and other items pertaining to the Christian Film Industry.
And we hope to host a few Sneak Previews again this year. We had a blast doing that last year!
And we are excited to announce that we will screen several of our Favorite Short films during SXSW week, on March 12th, at Alamo Drafthouse-Village, in a fun night of celebrating “The Best of the Fest’s Short Films Showcase.” Be sure to attend as it will be a night of Award Winning, impactful films from the last 10 years of the Fest (plus a few new ones), Also included will be a Panel Q and A with filmmakers and Staff and lots of fun stories about the process of running a film fest and making a film. We know you will enjoy the night as much as we will.
Thanks again for your support and encouragement. We hope to see you at the Spirit 105.9 Concerts and on March 12th’s Best of the Fest.
