Media Talk 101 is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching media discernment in the light of following Christ founded by Phillip Tefler. “The focus for most of this time has been on reaching out to media consumers but since the production of our award winning documentary “Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture” (2012) we have had more opportunity to reach out to media producers. This year we wanted to be more intentional with outreach to content creators and the idea of holding a film festival and filmmaking workshops seemed to be an ideal direction.” Phillip Telfer

The Christian Worldview Film Festival was started in 2014 by the non-profit ministry Media Talk 101 to encourage Christian Filmmakers in their Biblical worldview and the craft of filmmaking. The inaugural five day event featured 33 speakers who gave over 50 unique workshops on Christian filmmaking and presented 80 Christian films which played on six different screens. The week ended with an awards ceremony with 13 different awards and a total of $6500 in prizes. The Film Festival had 700 registered attendees for our first year and over 1000 for both our second and third years. The fourth annual Festival will be held from March 13-18, 2017 at the Norris Conference Center in San Antonio, TX.
