The Frontier Filmmaking Seminar
The Frontier Filmmaking Seminar (FFS) is a six-week training workshop that includes a practical field assignment where participants work together with an experienced film crew to produce an evangelistic dramatic film in the language and culture of an unreached people group. We cover basic training in a variety of filmmaking disciplines and expose you to the unique cross-cultural methods we use to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“We sent one of our staff, to the Frontier Filmmaking Seminar in Chiang Mai last year. That course helped her immensely by providing her with skills, experience and vision for the upcoming video projects we are doing here with the 20/20 vision. We understand the need to create professional, inspirational and entertaining videos in order for the message to be heard and understood. Thank you Create International for setting the bar high.”

“I would like to extend my gratitude to the Create International 2020 Vision Team for reaching out to India with the gospel films. Thank you for your heart to come here and train us in media and filmmaking which we can use for sharing the Good News to the people across the globe. Thanks again for giving me an opportunity to take part in the course which took place here in Dehradun in June 2014. It was a really blessing for me and gives me more clarity and wider understanding on my vision and helping me to go further with my work and passion for the Lord though audiovisual medium.”
