I wanted to thank you for Ted Parks’ thoughtful article about our beloved City of the Angels Film Festival ("Strange Bedfellows," March-April 2000). It is one of the festival’s goals to help bridge the space between people of faith and our culture’s most eloquent art form—film. We applaud you for joining us in this effort.
We invite your readers also to become partners in this process by visiting our website (www.cityofangelsfilmfest.org) and gathering ideas of worthwhile films that explore complex issues of faith and humanity. It is our hope that the practice of engaging films in conversation with the believing community will encourage more thoughtful filmmaking and will give our faith communities a truly wondrous resource for breaking open the mystery of being.
