2009 – Final Meeting

It became a tradition towards the beginning of our organizational period that every last Wednesday of the month, our meeting would put all talk of logistics, funding, advertising, and design on hold for one very important thing: prayer. It was more than evident to us that the idea of ” film festival amateurs” putting together an inter-faith,international film festival in only nine months was going to take dedication, love, and a miracle. For this reason, prayer became the backbone of this festival.While the “prayer meetings” started out between the Directors only, when they decided to open it up to family, friends, and the rest of their community, people were thrilled to join the cause and be a part of the miracle. And when October came, the Directors noticed something quite peculiar in their calendars… the Wednesday night before their Opening Night Event on October 29th was the last Wednesday of the month. Surely, they were being called to close their preparation period with prayer while kicking off the innaugural festivities by entrusting their hard work to God.

On October 28th, 2009– the Final Prayer Meeting was held at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and was open to people from all of the South Florida community as they united with the organizers in laying the festival’s mission at the foot of the atar.

Volunteers set up for the Final Prayer Meeting three of members of our incredible team
