ICVM Storytellers Conference

ICVM will host our Annual Storytellers Conference October 9th-12th, 2024. 

Bringing Together Christian International Storytellers

ICVM hosted its 52nd Annual Storytellers Conference bringing together Christian Storytellers to engage and inspire one another through international visual and media. 

Featured Events

Christian Film Market

Featuring distributors looking for your finished ready-to-distribute films — movies, documentaries, TV series and shows!  This is where deals are made! You have 5 minutes one-on-one with the distributors you feel are best for your film.

Script & Story Pitch-A-Thon

Pitch your screenplay, story, or book one-on-one with distributors and producers looking for new material or movies or TV shows.

Investors Lion's Den

A Shark-Tank-type event, we’re bringing in a Dallas-based investment group with accredited Christian investors taking well-prepared presentations for Christian film-related business opportunities (e.g., production companies, studios, post houses, casting agencies, streaming networks, etc.)  For start ups or companies looking to expand!   This is done in front of attendees, so filmmakers get to learn what it takes to successfully land investors. There’s a meet-and-greet with the staff and investors of Lion’s Den DFW after!

Crown Awards Finalists Announced

A dinner-event where we announce the 5 Finalists in each of our Crown Award categories!  Those finalists will advance to NRB, the biggest Christian TV, radio and film convention, where the 3 winners in each category will be awarded on NRB’s main stage at the red-carpet event! 

Speaker & Deep Dive Seminars

Speakers who are film industry leaders giving you behind-the-scenes real-world info and inspiration.

Deep Dives are full of education and inspiration for every segment of the filmmaking community, including Production, Distribution, Acting, Writing, Post Production, Music and more!

Popcorn Night

Now TWO nights!  A show-and-tell stage where you can show video and/or talk about your most recent project, current project, next project… or just about you!  

Prayer & Worship Gatherings

Each morning — the best way to start the day, together praising God!
