Media Talk 101

2012-Logo-Blue-RBGis a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching media discernment in the light of following Christ.  The focus for most of this time has been on reaching out to media consumers  but since the production of our award winning documentary “Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture” (2012)  we have had more opportunity to reach out to media producers.  This year we  wanted to be more intentional with  outreach to content creators and the idea of holding a film festival and filmmaking workshops seemed to be an ideal direction.  For more information about Media Talk 101 please visit our website.
