CBA International Convention Comes to Nashville

I can’t believe it’s that time again for the International Christian Retail Show. We went for the first time in 2013 when it was in St. Louis. It was a great experience of meeting and interviewing industry leaders and getting a glimpse into upcoming trends in the Christian retail market. We had no idea there would be such a strong film presence, but we interviewed Mike Nawrocki, Erin Bethea, Michael Landon, Jr. and many more leaders in the faith-film world.

We went again in 2016 when it was in Cincinnati. This time was a whirlwind trip to the Christian Retail Show and the ICVM conference. We were honored that year to have The Good Book a finalist for a Christian Retailing’s Best Award and Providence winning four ICVM Crown Awards. We also met and interviewed film folks, authors, and musical artists.

This year we’re excited to have the CBA retail show and ICVM conference here in Nashville. Things are a little crazy this year with our theatrical release, but we’re looking forward to being a part of the CBA/ICVM joint events on Tuesday, the Faith in Film/ICVM time on Friday, and the ICVM Crown Awards dinner on Saturday. If you’ll be heading to any of those events, let us know. We’d love to connect. See you there!

P.S. While you’re in town, be sure to catch Summer of ’67 showing at the Regal Hollywood Stadium 27 at Hundred Oaks Mall in Nashville. Five shows a day through Thursday.
