SONscreen Film Festival Showcase debuts college tour at Union College

SONscreen Film Festival co-founders Stacia Dulan and Jere Wallack will debut the SONscreen Film Festival Showcase College Tour at Union College. The program was created to inform college students and faculty about the annual SONscreen Film Festival, the official North American Division (NAD) film festival for Christian filmmakers. The national tour will commence with a fun-filled showcase event to be held in the Union College administration building amphitheater on Saturday evening, Jan. 28, 2006 from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
        “We are thrilled to make college students aware of the exciting opportunity to participate in an innovative media movement by submitting their work and attending the SONscreen Film Festival,” said Stacia Dulan, Producer of the SONscreen Film Festival for the North American Division (NAD). “Our screenings of remarkable works coupled with informative filmmaker Q&A sessions will not only demonstrate the growing impact of film, video and animation in ministry but will also inspire and challenge those who want to use their creative gifts to touch the lives of their communities at large.” Sponsored locally by the Associated Student Body (ASB), the Union College showcase event will also feature exciting prize giveaways including an iPod Shuffle and SONscreen t-shirts, caps and DVDs.
        The 2006 SONscreen Film Festival will be held April 20-22 in Simi Valley, Calif. Sponsored by the NAD, the SONscreen Film Festival is an annual gathering for Adventist Christian young adults who have a passion for using film and video for the purpose of creating timely and relevant productions for outreach, social awareness and uplifting creative entertainment. Since its debut in October 2002, the festival has become the destination for established and up-and-coming Adventist filmmakers to share their creative work, gain exposure and network with other media and film professionals.
        SONscreen Showcase events are designed to create grass roots awareness and support for the SONscreen Project and benefit filmmakers, film enthusiasts and the church at large. The Union College Showcase, a free event, is open to the general public.
