Emmy nominated actor turned writer-director Corbin Bernsen will screen his 2010 film 'Rust' followed by a Q&A

Actor, writer, director Corbin Bernsen will screen his film Rust, followed by Q&A. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Bernsen is known for his starring roles on PsychL.A. Law, and three Major League films, (with Charlie Sheen), as well as guest spots on top shows such as Castle. Bernsen’s directing credits include Rust and two other faith-based films due in 2011 — 25 Hill, and Barlowe Mann. Bernsen describes his motivation:

“Not only is it currently good business to bring faith to film, it’s important on a variety of other levels.  We as a society and a global community need to counter the growing trend toward doubt and fear. For me, the best way I know to do this is by introducing faith back into our society with the one creative tool I know best; film.”.


Panelist Brian Bird co-wrote 2009 faith-based hit with pastor T.D. Jakes after helping open the door to faith-based programming as a writer-producer on 'Touched by an Angel'

A panel discussion entitled, “Market Forces in Faith and Family Content,” will feature producer Ken Wales (Amazing Grace), writer/producer Brian Bird (Not Easily Broken, The Shunning, Touched by an Angel,), Paul Crouch Jr., VP of administration at Trinity Broadcasting Network and film reviewer Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide.

Panel moderator John David Ware, founder/president of the 168 Film Project, (an incubator for filmmakers of faith for nearly a decade) commented,

“I am amazed at the depth of the filmmakers, instructors, music and comedy associated with this event.  Don’t miss it.”

The Faith ’N’ Film Summit will run from 8:30 AM – 9:00 PM at the Las Vegas Hilton Pavilion 9.
