Members talk about ICVM

“ICVM’s Annual Conference is a place where those committed to ministry in video and film can meet others with the same goal for mutual encouragement, learning, and fellowship.”
“In my many years of involvement with ICVM, I’ve found the organization to be committed to two things: terrific filmmaking and communicating Christian ideals.”

“ICVM has “a well-established annual conference. If you are looking for international talent, crew, distribution, or just to make contacts on an international level, this conference is for you.”
