Looking Closer… in Portland, Oregon!

On Sunday, August 21, I’m coming back to my hometown of Portland, Oregon…

  • to talk about my experiences as a Christian and a film critic;
  • to describe the current dialogue in the media and in churches about the value and nature of art;
  • to examine the way Christians respond to movies;
  • to address the important differences between propaganda, entertainment, and art;
  • to talk about the unique way in which art reveals the glory of God;
  • and to answer any questions you might have.

I’d love to see you there!

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
