Industry and Member News - May 2020

Hello ICVM family and friends,

I’m grateful to serve as the new Executive Director for ICVM. Paul Sirmons now leads our board and we are all here to serve our industry and our members, as we continue to grow as a supportive Christian community for this generation of storytellers. We have many things happening behind the scenes to expand ICVM beyond an annual conference and increase the value of your membership. If you're not a member, here's how to join.

The big news we are highlighting this month is all about the 45th Crown Awards. Submissions are now open and we're excited to see what you've been up to! 

We are still moving ahead with plans for the ICVM Storytellers Conference in November in Glendale. We are in touch with the hotel to determine what precautions and changes will be made to keep attendees safe. We are also exploring an online component for those unable to attend, so please keep us in prayer as the changing situation unfolds.

We’ve partnered with Film Freeway to allow our Awards to be open for both ICVM members and non-members -- and make it easier to submit projects from anywhere in the world.  We’ve also partnered with NRB on a Crown Awards ceremony at their conference to give our Crown Award-winners a big promotional boost!


We’ve made it more valuable to be an ICVM member – members get a 50% discount on all submissions to the Awards!  You will get the discount code when you join ICVM.  You can join here.   If you are already a member, ask for your FilmFreeway discount code from Paul Marks at  [email protected].
