For Proclaim 19, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Anaheim, California, we’ve brought together dozens of speakers and insightful sessions, nearly 200 exhibitors, and various networking events.
Also part of the schedule are screenings. This year, there will be eight screenings taking place at the Convention.
Tuesday, March 26 | 8:30-10:30 p.m.
Breakthrough is based on the impossible true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of incredible odds. When Joyce Smith’s son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. From producer DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven) and starring Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Breakthrough is an enthralling reminder that faith and love can create a mountain of hope … and sometimes even a miracle. Immediately following screening there will be a Q&A to discuss Breakthrough with producer DeVon Franklin.
NO SAFE SPACES
Wednesday, March 27 | 1-3 p.m.
Adam Carolla, host of the number one podcast in the world, the AdamCarolla Show, and radio talk show host Dennis Prager, have teamed up to create a feature-length film, No Safe Spaces. The film takes Prager and Carolla to college campuses across the country, interviewing students and professors, comedians and commentators on the left and right, and those who have been impacted by the silencing of different voices on campus, analyzing the value of so-called safe-spaces. Viewers will also be taken back into time to Prager and Carolla’s youth with dramatic and comedic recreations of life-shaping moments in their lives including Prager’s visit to the totalitarian Soviet state and Carolla’s experience growing up in a single parent household. Despite having very different backgrounds, Prager and Carolla share a deep concern with the direction of our country and believe what’s happening on college campuses today is the bleeding edge of our cultural decline.
ROE V. WADE
Wednesday, March 27 | 9-11 p.m.
Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the foremost abortionist in history, and Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first African American woman to graduate Harvard Medical School, square off in a national battle in this untold conspiracy that led to the most famous and controversial court case in history. Roe v. Wade will shed a new light on the real facts behind this catastrophic, deadly decision.
Thursday, March 28 | 10-11:30 a.m.

THE CHILDREN OF SHANGHAI
Thursday, March 28 | 2:30-4:30 p.m.
Children of Shanghai reveals how almost a million orphans were placed into local foster families.

JESUS: HIS LIFE
Thursday, March 28 | 5-6 p.m.
History’s eight-episode event series explores the story of Jesus Christ through a unique lens: the people in his life who were closest to him. Each of the eight chapters is told from the perspective of different biblical figures – all of whom played a pivotal role in Jesus’ life – including Joseph, John the Baptist, Mary Mother of Jesus, Caiaphas, Judas, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene, and Peter. New episodes Mondays at 8 p.m., beginning March 25.
Thursday, March 28 | 8:30-10:30 p.m.
Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future. After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy, meet an aspiring athlete who’s pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year. Immediately following screening there will be a Q&A to discuss Overcomer.
Friday, March 29 | 1:30-3:30 p.m.
From Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, the writers/co-producers of God’s Not Dead, comes a film that speaks to one of the most polarizing topics of our day. Unplanned brings us an eye-opening look inside the abortion industry from a woman who was once its most passionate advocate. After reading Abby Johnson’s best-selling book of the same title, Cary and Chuck were moved to bring this inspiring true story to the big screen, giving voice to a woman who has been on both sides of the abortion conversation. Unplanned is the most important movie you’ll ever see on the most controversial issue of our time. No matter which side of the fence you’re on, no one will leave this film unmoved by Abby’s journey.
To participate in the screenings above, you must have a full Convention registration or a day pass for the date of the screening.
