Let me say I barely slept, there was way too much to take in! My five days in Dallas, TX for MegaFest was OUTSTANDING to say the least.
Here is a recap of just some of the experiences I had at the conference.
There were movies playing during almost the whole time, panels full of great information, industry professionals shared tips and made themselves available for questions. There were also several movie screenings. I spent at least 11 hours watching films while I was there. I can happily report everything I saw was excellent
HILLSONG: Let Hope Rise
I have been seeing previews for this film for at least the last 4 months. I was excited to hear from Hillsong members and to watch the film. It was amazing to watch the members of the and reflect on their experiences past and present. Hearing about their lives, their journey’s and the way things are done left me saying wow on multiple occasions. The members of Hillsong, work for the church, they live modestly, they love God and really have grown along with the church. There songs are played in an incredible number of churches every week and there popularity is international. Great film.
COVERED: ISRAEL and New Breed: Alive in Asia
Sharing their experience touring around in Asia. I had a chance to hear Israel speaking, but I was not able to view this film. I am excited to hear more about this film and this experience.
I have been a huge fan of Pastor Soaries and this movement for years, I heard about it when he launched it several years ago. Over the years, he has been committed to bringing this information to the masses and changing the lives of those who are enslaved to debt. Although I didn’t get a chance to screen the documentary at MegaFest, I look forward to seeing it in the near future.
I knew nothing about this movie or this story until about a week ago when I received the invitation to screen it at home. I missed the local screening so seeing it at MegaFest was a wonderful surprise. This is a story of a team, who changed not just their team, but their town. This movie based on a true story left me with so much to think about. A heartwarming story that I think you are really going to love.
Captive, the book based the book Unlikely Angel and the incident that happened in Atlanta several years ago.
Captive is a drama that follows the true story of Brian Nichols, who escaped from the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta on March 1, 2005 and held the Ashley Smith hostage in her home. David Oyelowo, of Selma plays Brian Nichols and Kate Mara plays Ashley Smith. I was really looking forward to this movie and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
THE WAR ROOM
How important is prayer? It is the missing ingredient in so many lives, but can prayer really make a difference.
So, what happens when a young real estate agent meets a woman who needs to sell her house and she discovers a her WAR ROOM? Her life changes and so can yours! Starring Priscilla Shrier, plays the wife Elizabeth. I was able to see this movie in April and I can’t wait to hear what people say today as it is released. The movie is not just outstanding, it is a movie you are going to want to add to your DVD collection.
MegaFest was an amazing experience, the International Faith and Film Festival truly had something for everyone and I was happy to share the experience with my family. When MegaFest returns, I pray you make it your business to attend it is a great time and money well spent.
