Biola Media Conference

http://www.biolamedia.com/
The Biola Media Conference (formerly Christians & Media) was born out of a desire to expose the film students at Biola University to working media professionals. In 1995, Dr. Rick Bee and Dr. Tom Nash invited members of the Biola Studio Task Force to come speak on Biola’s campus, giving students the opportunity to learn and interact with top industry professionals. The result was a quality program that encouraged and benefited each participant – with requests made that it be broadened to the wider community.

Within 5 years, the annual conference had grown to nearly 350 attendees, and was gaining momentum as a significant professional resource for Christians in the entertainment field.
