Film festival promotes justice and the gospel
A film festival aimed at promoting justice issues and the gospel through creative film and media is kicking off later this month.
The I Will Tell Film (IWT) Festival is free to attend for the first time in its seven-year history.
IWT is the first and longest-running film festival of its kind with an exciting two weeks of award-winning films from the UK, US, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Asia and Europe.
The festival's aim is to be "a voice to the voiceless", screening films such as critically-acclaimed Nefarious, Songs of Redemption, Even the Rain and Die Like Children.
This year the festival theme is 'After The Liberation' and asks the question, what happens when you discover you are free? The films are about the very few people who know they are free, and walk in it, whose lives inspire others to open up the prison doors and walk in newness of life.
The post-screening discussions at the heart of the festival films themselves are enjoyed for the authenticity, originality and inspiration, according to the festival organisers.
"But they can also be very challenging," said festival director, Jenny Lee.
It takes place at the Stratford Circus Theatre and The Venue at Pimlico Academy from 30 August 2013 to 9 September 2013 with an exciting 11 nights of award-winning films and discussions.
