Courageous. Fireproof. Unconditional. Grace Unplugged. Now popular in both Christian and secular circles, these movies and their creators have raised the standard for filmmakers in the Christian film industry. But these movies were not made overnight or the first projects of their creators. Like the great filmmakers before them, they started small: weaving stories and worlds together as children, playing with their first camera, and making their first short film. Through trial and error, encouragement and criticism, they became the filmmakers they are today.
As I write, young people across Mississippi are starting their journey: filming, editing, and producing films to enter in this year’s MHEA Film Festival. A new generation of filmmakers is trying to make their way to the big screen, and the 2014 MHEA Film Festival is an opportunity for you to encourage them along their journey. If you decide to become a sponsor, you will be helping to provide operating capital, cash prizes for the winners, and helpful feedback from an experienced panel of judges.
We’d like to ask you to consider generously sponsoring this year’s festival so that MHEA can act as a launching ground for these young filmmakers by assisting them in their pursuit of excellence. Your sponsorship is more than just providing prizes and critique; it is an investment in young people who have a desire to produce high quality films that bring glory to God.
This year we have several new levels of sponsorship and benefits to meet your needs.
Thank you for your consideration.
