Transforming Stories International Christian Film Festival

One week festival throughout South Africa and countries worldwide. The purpose of the festival is to showcase powerful, inspiring, faithaffirming, evangelistic, transforming stories in the form of film to the world and the Body of Christ in every nation. We want to emphasize how the power of storytelling can impact the lives of people and shape a specific culture. To accomplish this we are willing to identify and reward talent that is of the highest standards. The festival will be presented in two forms, in host countries around the world and in selected movie theatres throughout South Africa. The award ceremony will take place in South Africa during September 2011 where winning films will be announced.The power of media is evident in this day and age, and movies have been a huge part of shaping the culture as we know it. BehindTransforming Stories International Christian Film Festival 2011 (TSICFF 2011) is a greater vision to transform cultures through storytelling and inspire people to make use of films in sharing the Gospel to all mankind.No longer will we as followers of Christ allow our world to be poisoned with profanity by media elites. Instead, we are encouraging revolutionaries out there to produce stories which can transform our culture into one that will be in line with The Kingdom of God (Yahweh),one of Justice, Peace, Righteousness and Love. TSICFF is looking for films that effectively illustrate stories of transformation by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; or true life testimonies of both spiritual and physical transformation by God’s power and intervention; or Biblical truths leading viewers to a clearer understanding of certain issues and topics.What makes this festival so unique is that it was launched in 2010 in South Africa through the partnership and association with the Lausanne movement, where over 4500 International Christian leaders from over 200 regions in the world were introduced to the festival. This opportunity has established great relationships to ensure future growth of the festival. Through our continuous efforts and with a truly global reach the festival aims to inspire Christian leaders to make use of films to evangelize, teach & transform their communities. This festival sources films from across the globe and then the same film festival program is presented in different host nations around the world. This festival has also been endorsed by a selection of internationally recognized leaders and role players.TSICFF is not only a film festival, its part of a global revolution encouraging film makers to produce films that will transform communities for the good!We encourage all to mobilize their churches, ministries and communities to support this festival!

HERMANO at AIFF 2011

user
One of the films to screen on opening night at AIFF 2011 was HERMANO (Venezuela, 2011). Marcel Rasquin's film, 'Hermano' (2010) conjures up reminiscence to the Brazilian hit film, 'City of God' (2002), not because it is similar, but because it is THAT GOOD! We start with a baby boy (Daniel) left to die in a dumpster. A mother picks the baby out of the dumpster and takes him home with her young son, Julio. Then we jump to years later when both boys- Daniel and Julio- are grown up to young me...

Berkowitz’s intention in this film was to show the possible relationship bet...
