This year's Social Justice awardee at the 2020 Religious Education Congress Film Showcase will be Evgeny Afineevsky. An Emmy and Oscar nominated director/producer.

“Evgeny’s body of work, especially his 2016 Winter on Fire: Ukraine’s Fight for Freedom and his 2017 Cries from Syria demonstrate his keen sense of humanity,” said Michael McNaught, President of Catholics in Media Associates.

Sr. Rose Pacatte, a Pauline Sister and member of Catholics in Media, consulted with Afineevsky for his upcoming 2020 summer release, the documentary Francisco that takes the audience into the heart and world of Pope Francis. Pacatte said, “Evgeny’s passion for telling stories that matter jumps right off the screen. You cannot help but be deeply moved by his love for humanity and work for justice.”

Along with the presentation of the award, Affineevsky will be the featured filmmaker at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Religious Education Congress film showcase, an evening event at the annual Congress that CIMA cosponsors with Loyola Marymount University and Family Theater Productions, on Friday, February 21 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

You can watch Sister Rose play for The Best Trivia Show Ever with host Sherri Shepherd on the Game Show Network (GSN on cable or satellite) next Tuesday, July 16 at 4PM. You can Google The Best Ever Trivia Show to find out how it is played. Ken Jennings of Jeopardy fame was one of the very fine "experts." The show is a half hour long. (Sister Rose is not allowed to say if she won or not - you will have to watch to find out!) If you record it you can watch it later.

As we celebrate the 53rd Annual World Communications Day this weekend, let us remember to offer prayers of intercessions to St. Francis de Sales to inspire us to be good digital disciples. Pope Francis also shares how we must always couple the digital with the physical connection.

🏆 A Hidden Life by filmmaker Terrence Malick

“The compelling story of Franz Jägerstätter, an austrian farmer, who with the support of his wife, Fani, refused to pledge allegiance to Hi**er, presents a profoundly human dilemma. The film’s high cinematographic values, direction, editing and script, express and explore the difficult challenges to the integrity of the human person on the level of conscience in the face of great evil. This is a universal story about the choices we make that transcend every earthly concern to follow one’s conscience.”

General information

Catholics in Media Associates was formed by working professionals in the entertainment industry whose wanted to share personal concerns of faith and spirituality as it is experienced in the workplace. In 1992, Fr. Tony Scannell, Capuchin, invited a small number of Catholics to meet. The group grew in spirit and purpose and soon Catholics In Media Associates (CIMA) was born. That year, CIMA was asked asked to host the Archbishop’s Annual Communion Breakfast for the entertainment industry. In 1993, the first CIMA Awards were celebrated. CIMA’s purpose broadened in part as a response to the 1992 Vatican document on Media called Aetatis Novae ("Dawn of a New Era"). This states, in part, that it would "... contribute to that integral development of the dimensions of man and society" to "promote media awards and other means of recognition in order to encourage and support media professionals." The Annual Mass, Brunch, and Awards Ceremony was held in the fall until 2008, when it was moved to the spring. In 2013, it moved to the Bel Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades. In 2014, it will be live-streamed for the first time to a worldwide audience.
