Free is Good
I have a great opportunity for you. And the good news is it’s FREE. Are you interested in filmmaking? Or do you want to be a filmmaker?. Or maybe you are just a film enthusiast. We have something for all of you. Starting on January 27, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. at the Vineyard Community Church in Springdale, Ohio, we are offering a class on spirituality, film and culture. The class is a part of Vineyard University. There is no age requirement. Registration is limited to the first 25 participants. You can register online by clicking on https://vinenet.net/vc/mvbanner.php?p=event.php&id=2636&x=1.
There will be a total of eight sessions running from January 27 through May 5. I will be teaching the class along with Isaac Stambaugh, who is Video Coordinator at Vineyard Community Church At each session, we will screen a current or classic movie, and then we will take a look at its technical, artistic, and spiritual elements.
As you know, films are a huge part of our culture. I believe these sessions will be an eye-opener. It’s amazing to see how much spirituality is expressed in the medium of film. Films have the power to change our perception, to inform us, to educate us and to challenge us while at the same time entertaining us. They can take us to a different world or even a galaxy long, long ago. In some ways, who we are and what we believe is now a direct product of what we see and hear in the movies.
Film has become the primary medium for how we connect to one another. Can God use film to tell His story and connect to us? Let’s find out together. Come and be a part of Spirituality, Film and Culture.
