Link to thread on 2014 Arts & Faith Ecumenical Jury Award(s). Link to IMAGE Good Letters announcement of 2014 Results. Greg (Wolfe) has given me the green light to put together another A&F Ecumenical Jury for this year. If you have questions about what the A&F Ecumenical Jury is, please read the thread from last year, posted above. This jury originate as an offshoot of Christianity Today's Critic's Choice end of year voting, so last year it started with CT critics and expanded to other critics at Christian publications and then to volunteers here. Since it is now an A&F property, that sequence is more or less reversed: participants at A&F should have first dibs on spots on the jury. Please post a message below or send me a private message if you would like to be on this year's jury. Last year we had twelve jurors with two alternates. Two voters eventually dropped out, so we ended up with twelve voters. That's a good size. If you would like to be on this year's jury, please say so in a post below. It worked out nicely that last year everyone who indicated to me that he/she wanted to be on the jury was able to vote. Theoretically, if we had more than twelve volunteers, we might have to come up with a means of jury selection, but we'll cross that bridge if we come to it. If we have less than twelve volunteers here, I can ask a couple of people outside of A&F, from CT, Patheos or other publications. The purpose of the Ecumenical Jury is to make recommendations for and from people of faith, so when considering volunteering, please consider the following: a] how many films you've seen released in the calendar year; and b] whether you are comfortable voting for/speaking for/speaking to a faith audience. I thought last year's list was interesting, and it did help conversations about a couple of films that we might not otherwise have seen. Once we have a jury set, I can open nominations. Am I leaving anything out? If so, just ask. 2015 Jury Kenneth R. Morefield Evan Cogswell Christian Hamaker Josh Hamm Joel Mayward M. Leary Gareth Higgins Alissa Wilkinson Steven D. Greydanus Peter T.
