LOS ANGELES, CA (June 2017) â€“ THE CASE FOR CHRIST, one of the best-reviewed faith-based films of 2017 will be featured at the renowned International Faith & Family Film Festival at MegaFest 2017 [June 30th @7pm] in advance of its home entertainment release in August from Pure Flix Entertainment.
Pure Flix has partnered with MegaFest, the nationâ€™s largest faith, film, and family multi-day experience to present a special screening of the powerful film as well as host an exclusive â€˜Talk Backâ€™ panel with THE CASE FOR CHRIST star L. Scott Caldwell and Pure Flix Entertainment VP Global Strategic Alliances, Franklin Santagate.
The extraordinary film is based on the 1980â€™s true story of a hard-driving journalist and atheist, Lee Strobel, who is exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting has earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things arenâ€™t going nearly as well at home, where his wife Leslieâ€™s newfound Christian faith put a strain on their marriage.Â Lee sets a plan to use his investigative skills to disprove Christianity, which goes against everything Lee believesâ€”or doesnâ€™t believeâ€”as an avowed atheist. Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.
Based on Lee Strobelâ€™s award-winning bestselling book and starring Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Academy AwardÂ® winner Faye Dunaway and Academy AwardÂ® nominee Robert Forster. THE CASE FOR CHRIST was applauded by critics including Christianity Today, which declared that it â€œstands among the best films produced yet by the Christian film industry.â€
