About the Launch Team
Fellowship for Performing Arts (FPA) is a New York City-based theatre company that tells stories from a Christian worldview to engage a diverse audience. You may know us through our theatrical productions of The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce as well as our narration of The Listener’s Bible.
The Most Reluctant Convert: The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis is our first major film release and we have created this Launch Team. By joining the Launch Team, you can help us share our trailer on social media platforms, distribute print and digital promotional material in churches, or even buy out a local theatre.
As this is FPA’s first film, the movie chains know that we don’t have a track record in movie distribution and have limited us to a one-day, Nov. 3 release. However, they do not understand the reach we have developed over the years to attract audiences through our nationwide theatrical tours. While the cinemas expect we will draw around 20,000 people, our goal is draw 75,000 to 100,000 people and to create the demand for additional showings.
With the Launch Team’s support, tens of thousands of people will experience C.S. Lewis’ profound faith journey from hard-boiled atheist to the “most reluctant convert in all England.” Please watch the trailer and consider joining our Launch Team.
P.S.: If there is not a screening near you, you can let us know on the Launch Team response form. With a commitment from you, we should be able to add a screen nearby.
”“This story has a remarkable ability to engage audiences regardless of their religious belief. Lewis applied his formidable and self-deprecating wit to engage audiences about his own trying and painful experiences.”Max McLean, Founder and Artistic DirectorFellowship of Performing Arts
