SONscreen Film Festival is hosting its sixth festival event on April 10-12.
Having moved around the country for several years from California
to Texas to Florida, the festival has made Simi Valley, California, the
official home of the festival. In 2006 SONscreen was welcomed by
Adventist Media Productions (AMP Studios) to utilize the state-of-the
art facility to hold the festival event .This partnership has allowed
for the festival to be an even more for an outstanding experience for
who attend and participate.
Upcoming festival activities and events include the outstanding film
screenings each evening by talented Adventist/Christian filmmakers from
around the nation and the global community. This years workshops will
cover the topics of scriptwriting, secrets of great cinematography, and
the art of capturing the story through documentary filmmaking. Sabbath
afternoon's panel discussion is entitled "Behind the Scenes: The Gospel
in the Trenches of Hollywood" which will explore with a panel of
Christian experts in the field what's it like to work in Hollywood...
outside of the spotlight.
"We take pride in the fact that many SONscreen Alumni have gone on from
our festival into other film festival arenas and won various accolades
for their films like the students of Southern Adventist University who's
film Secret of the Cave received the Crystal Heart Award at the
Heartland Film Festival and now the film has been picked up by major
distribution so the film is in national store chains like Block Buster,
Walmart, & Best Buy," said Stacia D. Wright, festival producer.
