There is a growing community of Catholic production companies in Hollywood, making everything from short educational films to documentaries and feature films. This year the Religious Education Congress proudly presents shorts and clips from a number of these companies, shown on Friday and Saturday night. Producers and directors will be on hand to meet with audience members after the screenings. This is a chance to see what’s being done by some of Hollywood’s Catholic faith community. Come celebrate this work with us! This event is coordinated by Ron Schmidt, SJ , who will be the MC for both nights, and John Flaherty.
