Contemplating the Face of Christ in Film

From the Pastoral Letter encouraging Evangelization with Film -

I encourage parishes and diocesan offices to sponsor film festivals and film studies that expose Catholics to the 1995 Vatican list of Best Films and other films that are wholesome, cultural, meaningful and that have eternal significance. Local Catholic organizations and small groups should occasionally show a film at their meetings or go to the theater together and afterward discuss the film. Likewise I encourage youth ministers in our parishes and teachers in our schools to use films in their work with our young people. I especially urge parents to go to the theater with their children and to watch films in the home and talk about them as a family.
