TSICFF2011


Firstly, I want to give God all the glory for making this dream a reality! We believe that the festival is not only our dream, but also God’s will. This festival is not just about showcasing films, but rather to exhibit what God is doing and how He is using ordinary people and their skills to tell transforming stories.

These stories are what make this festival amazing and to showcase these stories to people in a theatrical environment is where we see God moving. The festival is also an opportunity for the Body of Christ / Church to reach out and invite the world to see how lives can be transformed by a God who is real and alive! Movies have the capacity to change our perspective, our way of thinking, our feelings, our morals, cultures and society! Let’s take back the industry and become an example to others in the way we present the truth through stories, leaving an eternal impact in the minds and hearts of every viewer.

Last year we as a management committee watched 108 films and we can testify that God is doing something unique through film makers! The quality and standard has been raised, the content has become more Biblically accurate and the stories have become more powerful. Through watching these films we have been taken on a journey to nations around the globe, experienced unique cultures and heard various languages. We can say with confidence, Our God is Great and His Greatness is portrayed through film. We applaud the film makers, directors and producers for making outstanding films with a heart for transforming cultures through storytelling!

2011 will be the second year of the festival. In 2010 the festival was also presented as part of the Lausanne Congress: The Third Congress on World Evangelization: Cape Town 2010, where more than 4500 delegates from many nations were introduced and encouraged to utilize the power of film in sharing the Gospel. This year we are inviting the nations of the world to join South Africa as we host the festival for 7 days. Interested nations may contact us to discuss the possibilities in becoming a hosting nation of the festival in their country. The festival will be presented in October 2011 throughout South Africa and thereafter it will be available to be hosted by conferences, nations or nationwide organizations in other interested countries. The management and administration office in Cape Town South Africa will facilitate and implement the entire festival.

I would like to appeal to all studio’s, production companies, ministries, businesses and governements to

support the festival through sponsorship and advertising opportunities and help us make this year’s festival truly spectacular.

I invite you to join this journey in transforming cultures and fueling the global revolution of Christcentered film making in our time!

I trust that you will be blessed and inspired by the festival in 2011!

Regards,

Transforming Stories International Christian Film Festival

Name: 
Transforming Stories International Christian Film Festival
Festival Director Name: 
Peet Louw
Festival presentation: 

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!
