LYNCHBURG, Va. (January 16, 2013)--Liberty University has entered into a partnership with a Dallas-based Christian studio to produce and distribute faith-based films.
Last year Liberty created a two-year film school and now the Cinematic Arts Center program is joining EchoLight Studios in a five-year agreement for five full-length feature films.
In announcing the agreement, Liberty said EchoLight will oversee the films' financing, production and worldwide distribution.
Cinematic Arts Center executive director Stephan Schultze said 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.
