The Northeastern Conference, specifically the Communication Department, is penning a new script after announcing its first film festival open to its constituent churches, schools and youth groups.

"The inspiration came from a desire to see something new done in the conference and for the churches. I wanted everyone to stretch their creative minds and pull together as churches and groups to develop something unique and special," said JeNean Johnson, the Communication Director of the Conference in an email.

The Festival is designed to provide eligible entrants with a wider audience where they can share their original piece(s) which must portray how one's perception of the world and the church can vary based on one's age or the maturity of their faith. Submissions can include a narrative or documentary short, commercial, or parody.

"I'm looking for films that depict church life as they see it. That means the submissions may be sentimental, critical, humorous or very direct and that's what makes it real and authentic. I'm hoping to see authentic depictions of how others view the church and their place in it all," stated Johnson.

Each entry is $20 and must be submitted by a church or church organization before the extended deadline of Jan. 31.
