Film Festival Submissions

As part of the Mission Central family the Create stream's Moving Pictures Festival contributes to the vision and mission of Mission Central and operates according to its values and principles.

The Moving Picture Festival has several unique goals:

  1. To encourage improvements in Christian film arts.
  2. To develop interest and appreciation of film as a story telling medium that can extend Shalom into the world.
  3. To encourage existing and aspiring filmmakers by providing a platform for networking and collaboration

Date: The 2021 festival will be held from Friday the 29th of January to Saturday January 30th, 2021.

All submissions must be received via FilmFreeway, by August 30, 2020.

The Committee reserves the right to choose and invite the films which will be presented at the festival. Each film that is invited to be part of the festival will receive a Certificate of Participation.
