Chennai Christian Short Film Festival 2013

Can we give life to our Christian faith? Can we make the treasures of Christ more vibrant, appealing and attractive with visuals, light and sound? For all Christians involved in media, it should be our pride, duty and honour to make this supreme treasure, our Lord Jesus Christ and his message known through this powerful medium of filmmaking.
In this modern technological world, ‘Media’ is a magic word, for it can give life to anything on this earth and make it as appealing and attractive as possible. We would be failing in our duty, if we do not turn and use this precious boon as a powerful weapon to fight evil and proclaim the good news. All Christian leaders have constantly affirmed of the need to use this great gift of Media to communicate the good news of Christ to the farthest ends of the world. CCSFF – Chennai Christian short Film Festival, scheduled for 9th November 2013, strives to bring into synergy all creative Christian energy.
If we love Jesus with all our hearts and have a great passion for this remarkable medium, then our creations must bring out the grandeur, beauty, power, relevance and efficacy of Christ’s message to the world. A beautiful opportunity to showcase your works, build up the faith and foster good values in the society.
All short films/music videos that reflect a distinctively Christian worldview, where the person of Jesus Christ and his message is incorporated in the visuals is very much encouraged and welcome before 20th October 2013. The best of entries in both the categories will be very specially awarded on the day of the festival.
