Story Together

A film critic, an actress and a director walk into a movie theatre. What do you get? More than the set up for a bizarre joke.

Ben McEachen, Zenia Starr and Jason Perini will join Reel Dialogue’s Russ Matthews to share their unique perspectives on the film industry. This trio will answer questions about being Christians in the entertainment realm. Also, they will share their thoughts on the value of faith-based films and where they think the future of cinema is taking us. Come along to ask your questions from these fascinating insiders and have some fun hearing about their experiences with film and faith.
