Hello everyone,

Hope your weeks are going fabulously

Fast Girls screening

Medianet member Jenny Lee would like to invite Medianet members to a special preview screening followed by a post-screening discussion with the filmmakers and the inspirational Martine Wright, a Christian young woman who lost her legs in the 7/7 bombings and is now part of team GB as one of our Paralympic hopefuls.

I Will Tell is partnering with Studio Canal and the Pentecost Festival  and the screening is on 19th May at 2pm at the Coronet Cinema in Notting Hill – for more info and to book tickets, visit the I Will Tell website

Animated childrens series

Julian Tewkesbury is working on a great new animated series for children's TV called "TyHa'an"

The project is clearly not without it’s struggles and Julian is currently looking for opportunities to visit other churches to talk about the project.  If you think you might be able to help, drop Julian a line julian@juliantewkesbury.com - It only takes 5 minutes out of the Sunday service!

Calling all artists

Unbelievable Conference

Ever had a colleague grill you on why you believe what you do?  Long journeys to and from film shoots used to provide me with plenty of these awkward conversations! Hopefully the Unbelievable Conference will help alleviate some of this: 

Premier Christian Radio, in partnership with Reasons To Believe, presents an apologetics day conference aimed at equipping everyday Christians with reasons for their faith.

Christian Resources Exhibition

There is a range of exiting things to see at Sandown in Esher but MediaNet members might be most interested to hear from Lord Putman who produced Chariots of Fire among many other things and also to be a part of the

first ‘UK Christian Film Festival’ For more information check out the CRE website
