    Looking at film interpretations of the stories in the Bible - past, present and future, as well as preparation for a future work on Straub/Huillet's Moses und Aron and a few bits and pieces on biblical studies.

    Jesus Flickfest 4 Starts Today

    Jesus Flickfest 4 starts today in Winnipeg, and a few more details are available online. The Jesus Flickfest blog has, rather aptly, been resurrected, and now contains a full schedule. Alternatively you can download a brochure and a poster. There's also links to a handful of trailers.

    The festival kicks off tonight at 6pm local time with Cotton Patch Gospel, just one of the films on display that I have yet to see. It's be great to hear some reflections on the event from those who are able to attend, so feel free to post them up.

      i've been a Jesus Flickfest attendee since it's inception although the first year all i got to see was "Life of Brian" since i only found out about it on the last night of the Fest.
      i went to Bob Dylan - The Jesus Years last night and it took some slugging to make it through the first hour but it was worth it in the end.

      Hi Matt
      survived another round... some of the big hits this year were Peter and Paul, the Last Inquiry, Ferrara's Mary and, of course, Son of Man. Viewers not so hot on Dylan flick. Mary, Mother of Jesus popular with mums. Good fedback too on Rossellini's Il Messia.
      Folk were enthusiastic - which is great. Now, a wee bit of rest would be good....

      Have seen "Son of Man" for the 2nd time. Even more powerful than the 1st viewing.
