For several months Imago has worked with its partners to shape a film and faith event in an effort to open a conversation on the film and the transcendent/religious/spiritual – probing that space between sacred and secular.  The event will take place on Monday and Tuesday April 3 and 4 and we are delighted that TIFF has chosen to join with us – Institute for Christian Studies, Ryerson University and IMAGO as a sponsor of this event.  
There will be a conference with a maximum enrollment of 50 at a cost of $65.  (some scholarships are available – if you contact us).  The conference includes an afternoon panel discussion on Monday – A talk and interview with the iconic Director and Screenwriter Paul Schrader on Monday evening at 7:00.  And three workshops on Tuesday morning and afternoon: one on post-secular cinema, one on Scorsese and the Catholic imagination and one on documentaries and the spiritual.  Details are at the ICS website – see below 
Tickets are available if you wish to attend only the Schrader event on Monday April 3rd at 7:00 – general admission – see the TIFF website.
