Advent Filmmakers

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”

~Carl Bard (1907-1978, Scottish theologian, broadcaster)

 

 

 

Until a vision puts on work clothes, its just a dream. At Advent Filmmakers we believe in dreams — but we don’t believe in keeping them that way. Therefore in pursing the vision of raising up a generation of excellent Christian filmmakers, we have adopted the following mission:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. To provide potential filmmakers with the fundamental knowledge they need to excel in their art through formal film training
  2. To disciple them in ways that directly apply the Word of God to the specific responsibilities and challenges of their profession
  3. To provide internships that give qualified individuals a hands-on learning experience and a springboard into the professional industry.
