The San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival is pleased to welcome the Jim Bob Duggar Family as featured speakers as part of its third annual Film Festival to be held in the Alamo City on October 19-21. The Duggars, stars of the Discovery Health Channels number one hit-special, Raising 16 Children, will give a behind-the-scenes look at their popular television documentary sensation as part of the three-day event to be held at the Gonzalez Convention Center in downtown San Antonio.
One of the most remarkable events on cable television took place recently when hundreds of thousands of viewers watched as the Duggars a Christian home school family with sixteen biological children worked together and managed a happy, orderly household to the glory of God, observed Doug Phillips, founder of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. The Duggars have been a bright light for Christ in the public eye, and we are delighted to have all eighteen members of the Duggar family as our guests at our third annual festival.
Raising 16 Children, the Discovery Health Channel initial documentary series, became the number one special on the network when it first aired. The response to the series was so overwhelming that Discovery commissioned three other specials including,On the Road With Sixteen Children, and 16 Children and Moving In!, the latter of which was broadcast on The Learning Channel.
The Duggar family has lived out their faith in Christ without compromise while engaging in a major media production, noted Phillips. This is what we are encouraging attendees of our festival to do to let the light of Christ suffuse their every effort in filmmaking and the arts.
During a special hour-and-a-half session with the Duggars, festival attendees will get a powerful look into the way a large Christian family works together as a team in a successful project of national impact. In addition to a behind-the-scenes look at a television documentary sensation, attendees will be able to ask questions and gain insights concerning the successful management of a large family.
The San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival aspires to offer a joyful vision of victory to both amateur and professional filmmakers who are committed to advancing the work of Jesus Christ through the medium of film. Festival passes are $85 for adults, $75 for students. Passes afford access to all festival events. Space is limited.
