We are excited to announce the dates and location for the 2018 Christian Worldview Film Guild and Festival. We will be holding the 5th annual guild and festival on March 12-17, 2018 in Franklin, Tennessee.

The Factory at Franklin, a unique space 30 minutes south of Nashville, will be our venue for a week of networking, learning, seeking God, and lots of film screenings. We look forward to announcing some of our speakers and workshops over the next several weeks, but in the mean time, our amazing media team put together a short highlight video from this year’s gathering.

We had a great year in San Antonio this year and we look forward to seeing you all in 2018 in Franklin, TN.
