With international travel having recently become possible again, it was only a matter of time for us to finally attend a film industry event. Over the period of Covid-19 visiting film festivals was not an option. This was highly inconvenient for us, given that festivals are an important way in which one can discover new movies and series. Finding content that matches our platform standards is crucial; by constantly adding new titles we can keep our platforms relevant and interesting. So, we chose to attend the International Christian Film Festival in … Orlando, Florida!
The International Christian Film Festival, Inc is a non-profit organization that started in September 2011. Its goal is to help, educate and promote Christian filmmakers and artists around the world. Anyone can try to participate in the festival by submitting their faith and/or family film, documentary, and music. The best submissions are then selected by a team of 10 judges, and are awarded during the festival. ICFF is open to everyone. There are classes, seminars, networking opportunities, a red carpet, and an award ceremony similar to the Oscars.
The festival is an important meeting point for Christian filmmakers, artists and organizations – so we had to be there. New Faith Network was there to tighten existing relationships with our partners and also to network with people in the Christian movie industry. Besides networking and socializing, we were also able to get important insight on several upcoming movie releases. It was definitely a pleasure to watch so many nice Christian films. We’re sure that our platform will be full of great new titles in the next few months.
We left the festival with a feeling of success. ICFF gave us the opportunity to seal new deals and provide our subscribers with great films and series. In the upcoming months, our team will work hard on getting the new content ready for our viewers to enjoy. In the meantime, plenty of other beautiful titles are waiting for you on New Faith Network.
