2021 – In partnership with CVLI
The next CEVMA Conference will be held from 9-11 September 2021. The (online) conference is an invaluable opportunity for Christians in visual media to meet, network, share ideas, projects and challenges and get spiritually refreshed.
The theme for CEVMA 2021 is ‘Equipped for Hope’
We had very much hopen to be able to meet together in the Netherlands for our CEVMA 2021 Conference and Film Festival. However, given the times in which we live, we have decided to make this year’s conference (and Film Festival) an online event (9-11 September 2021). There’s a lot of uncertainty in these days, the only thing we can be sure of is ‘(…)Christ in us, our HOPE of glory’. How wonderful to know at this time, but what of those who do not have this assurance? That is why the ministry of Christian Visual Media is important today, as so many search the airwaves and ether for answers to what in the world is going on.
We, in visual media, need to be equipped to provide answers to the questions people are asking. Equipped for hope – is the theme that has been on our hearts, as a board, for this years’ conference. In order to fulfil this mission, we need to be equipped. As professionals, we seek to equip ourselves with the latest technology, explore techniques, creativity and knowhow to captivate the audience. As believers we seek to equip ourselves spiritually too, and the way we do that is through ministry, fellowship and encouragement with those of the same calling. This is what CEVMA is all about. It’s a time to learn, inform, discuss, share, encourage and network.
We need to equip ourselves to share the message in a way that is sensitive, creative and compelling but, most of all, that brings hope in hopeless circumstances. We hope that you will be able to join with us and look forward to all that the Lord has in store for our time.
‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you’ (1 Peter 1: 3-4).
