Liberty University To Produce Christian Films

Posted: Updated:

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Liberty University has entered into a partnership with a Christian studio to produce and distribute faith-based films.

Last year Liberty debuted a two-year film school. Now the Cinematic Arts Center program is joining Dallas-based EchoLight Studios in a five-year agreement for five full-length feature films.

In announcing the agreement Tuesday, Liberty says EchoLight will oversee the films' financing, production and worldwide distribution.

Cinematic Arts Center executive director Stephan Schultze says the agreement will bring the film school to "an amazing new level."

The university predicts the film school's enrollment will reach 200 by 2015.
