Hundreds of Christian filmmakers will gather in San Antonio for the Third Annual Christian Filmmakers Academy this fall to discuss a replacement industry for Hollywood.
The academy, a project of Vision Forum Ministries, is designed to give Christian filmmakers the nuts-and-bolts skills to succeed in creating films for the glory of God.
"The Christian Filmmakers Academy exists to help these aspiring culture changers find success outside of Hollywood as part of a rising replacement industry built on biblical presuppositions of aesthetics, morality and cultural influence,” said Doug Phillips, president of Vision Forum Ministries and founder of the Christian Filmmakers Academy.
"Our goal is to help students recover the lost traditions that will equip them to make films that advance rather than undermine the Christian worldview ethic -- films with cultural, moral, and artistic integrity," he continued.
