Sunday, Apr. 18 | 1:00 p.m. via Zoom
The pandemic has brought us many challenges as well as new possibilities. In the past it was unheard of to be able to see the premieres of theatrical films on your own TV. Not anymore! Fr. Vince will share on how streaming services have become what the old studio system used to be: producers, marketers and distributors of their own films signaling a change in the industry. Fr. Vince will speak to this new trend as well as where to see the best films and how best to watch them. Plus, just in time for the Oscars, he will highlight a few of the nominees for this year’s best films and how a few speak to our faith.
