Great Films, True Stories: The 2006 Image Film Festival

This year’s Image Film Festival promises to be a challenging, exciting series of events. It’s entitled “Telling the Truth: The Art of Documentary Films,” featuring five documentary films that satisfy our desire for revelation, entertainment, emotional connection, and above all, truth.

Join us for the kick-off event, Friday, January 20, 2006, from 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Five films will be screened over the course of the weekend–Hoop Dreams, Born Into Brothels, Murderball, Supersize Me, and Buena Vista Social Club–followed by discussions led by panels of faculty and students.

Free popcorn and other goodies will be served.

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.

    Re: A Scanner Darkly.

    I am sill looking forward to seeing this one for myself. I’m not the biggest fan of the cast, but am willing to give Linklater the benefit of the doubt on this one. I always assumed it would be a difficult film – as I have heard the book is not an easy one either.

    Great line-up. Wouldn’t mind if they’d added Mad Hot Ballroom, but maybe they thought one story of children in difficult circs was enough.

    Man, I wish I could be there! This looks like the best one yet.
