posted by Nell Minow

Christian Movie Connect is a new weekly video podcast hosted and produced by faith-based film producer and media personality Cheryl Ariaz Wicker.  It premieres today with the kickoff show featuring actor John Schneider, talking about his role on the upcoming “Doonby.”

Tune in for news of the latest faith-based movies and Christian personalities on and off screen, posted weekly each Wednesday on ChristianMovieConnect.com.

Christian Movie Connect (CMC) podcasts feature interviews with filmmakers, actors, screenwriters and other newsmakers in the Christian film industry both nationally and abroad, conducted at Christian industry events as the National Religious Broadcasters Convention, Biola Media Conference, Gideon Media Arts Conference and Film Festival and International Christian Visual Media Catalyst Conference, to name a few.

Film and media personalities featured on future CMC episodes include Bobby Downes (“Like Dandelion Dust”), Jerry Jameson (“Raise the Titanic,” “Airport ’77,” “Murder, She Wrote”), Ken Wales (“Amazing Grace,” “Christy”), Jenn Gotzen (“Nixon,” “Doonby”), PluggedIn Online’s Bob Waliszewski, Dave Christiano (“7th Street Theater,” “The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry”), Christian media guru Phil Cooke, Columbia Pictures’ Devon Franklin, Walden Media’s Micheal Flaherty and 20th Century Fox’s Simon Swart; and VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer. Among the well-known Christian leaders that will be featured on CMC to lend their take on the influence of Christian film are media and culture expert Josh McDowell and best-selling author/speaker Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham.

CMC will also have special daily podcasts from the Gideon Media Arts Conference & Film Festival (Gideon) airing from August 7-12, 2011.  Producer Cheryl Ariaz Wicker says, “As a producer of faith-based, family friendly and life affirming films, I am an advocate for Christian movies and clean, values-based entertainment. Through positive films, we can inspire movie goers…but greater still, we can promote time-tested values to the culture at large.”
