About Us

Founded in 2011, GloryReelz Christian Film Festival and Writer’s Lab began with the hope to educate and encourage indie filmmakers of Christian, Faith-Based and Family Friendly Films in the Michigan area. There were no other Christian or Faith-based Film Conferences in Michigan so our goals were to help create and promote media that would not just entertain but evangelize the nations, while shining a spotlight on Media Makers in Michigan. Since its inception, the weekend long event has received and shared films from all over the world including Chicago, California, The Carolinas, Missouri, Florida, Kansas, Wisconsin, China, South Africa, Australia, Ireland, London, Nigeria and Vancouver.

Our conference held annually the 2nd weekend of June, consists of workshops, master classes, film screenings, literary workshops, networking sessions and awards ceremony. As Michigan’s only Christian Film Conference attendees have connected and formed friendships and partnerships, and had the opportunity to attend master classes by renowned filmmakers and writers such as Cecil Murphy, Dr. Stan Williams, playwright T.J. Hemphill and distinguished award winning author Beverly Jenkins. Additionally, workshops and guest speakers like Aaron Burns, Dick Rolfe, literary agents, indie filmmakers and actors have been a part of the festival.

*This year to introduce our new film festival, MMS we will host GloryReelz November 8-9, 2019.
