The Well Film Festival is a place where you can be equipped, encouraged, and engaged. Where networking makes you feel like a part of a community that surrounds you with creative hearts beating as one. The refreshment of the environment and focus calls you to the origin of your gifts and the purpose they have in the big picture. This is what you will find with The Well Ministry Conference and Film Festival 2022 in Grand Rapids, MI.

I welcome you warmly to The Well.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
Your itinerary during the festival is your decision. From attending workshops to watching films, our goal is to provide each participant unprecedented access to industry leaders in hopes to exchange ideas about the art and business of Christian film making

The WELL FILM FESTIVAL is part of CHRISTIAN FILM EVENTS that hosts FIVE nationally recognized film festivals and conferences each year with a goal to educate and challenge Christian filmmakers.
