The most powerful way to insert an idea into the world is through story. — Robert McKee
Everyone loves a good story, and today’s master storytellers share their narratives through film. Global Short Film Network provides 24 powerful stories you can share through film -- short stories that allow you to enter and explore the lives of people around you. When you watch a film, you connect with the characters and you identify with their lives. You find yourself drawn in because you’ve had similar hopes and dreams, disappointments and hurts, relationships and experiences.
Everyone is on a journey, living out their own life story. After showing a film, you can come alongside someone in their journey by hearing their responses to the film’s story, and by exploring their story. Asking questions and genuinely listening can open a door to significant spiritual conversations. As a result of hearing their responses, God may just open a door for you to share a bit of your story, and even His story.
The Global Short Film Network provides you with hand selected films and quality training as a platform to springboard into spiritual conversations with your friends, family, classmates, coworkers, etc. These films will motivate, inspire and challenge you.
The Global Short Film Network partners with filmmakers to produce quality short films and teach the elements of story and filmmaking. The films are packaged in an easily accessible, readily available form that you can use to stir up great conversation with those around you. Students, teachers, professionals and churches in 76 countries are using the films.
Each DVD contains 8 short films, as well as interviews with the filmmakers, behind-the-scenes features and interactive questions. The DVD can be used in small- or large-group settings.
