NRB Welcomes Christian Film Community with New Ventures

film reelThe National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) is establishing a Film Standing Committee to serve the unique interests of Christian film professionals.

In addition, NRB is rolling out a number of initiatives, events, and offerings to help Christian filmmakers advance their projects, grow their personal network, and develop their skills.

Such ventures include, but are not limited to:

Complimentary NRB Convention Registration
NRB will welcome the film community into the organization by offering a limited number of complimentary passes for the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention to film professionals who are referred by a Film or TV Standing Committee Member. To qualify, the film professional must be a first-time attendee to the Convention, be interested in pursuing and able to qualify for NRB membership, and stay at the Gaylord Opryland or the Inn at Opryland. (Numbers are limited and a few other restrictions apply.)

Film-Specific Educational Offerings & Keynote
An impressive line-up of film-oriented educational sessions will be offered at the NRB Convention in Nashville, TN, February 22-25, 2014. Attendees will find that the sessions – covering topics from finances and management to storytelling and marketing – will help them in their pursuit of professional excellence. DeVon Franklin, Senior Vice President of Columbia Tristar Pictures, will also offer a keynote message.

Filmmakers’ Pitch-a-Thon
During the NRB Filmmakers’ Pitch-a-Thon, a part of NRB 2014, filmmakers will have a series of five-minute, face-to-face pitch meetings with high-profile Christian film distributors. This means participants will be getting real-time feedback from real-life experts. NRB Convention attendees can pitch one idea to three distributors for free; non-attendees can pitch one idea to three distributors for $99. Additional opportunities are available for a fee.

Film Screening Rooms
NRB is offering a fully-equipped screening room at competitive rates to filmmakers and others who produce films. For those looking to build awareness of new films (or concepts/causes presented through film), this opportunity can’t be beat: in one sitting, they’ll reach Christian media professionals – a powerful group of potential advocates – and NRB’s new film community – word-of-mouth powerhouses. (Contact Steve Cross, NRB Director of Marketing, for details – scross@nrb.org, 703-331-4518.)

And that is just the beginning!

To hear more about these and other new film-related ventures at NRB, contact Melissa Sturgis, NRB Director of Membership, at msturgis@nrb.org or 703-331-4502.
