THE PURSUIT OF DREAMS
The Pursuit of Dreams is a feature length documentary film that seeks to look at the subject of God giving men and women dreams for their future, and how the journey to fulfilling those dreams is lived out. Dreams by their nature can be difficult, lofty and sometimes seemingly impossible. We will be interviewing and following a host of people who have different and varied dreams and who have seen different levels of fulfilment. We will investigate the trials that were faced and what was required to overcome them. We want those who carry dreams to be equipped with tools to help them walk out their own journeys. We also aim to inspire and motivate the viewers to pick up old dreams and be ready to receive new dreams.
Take a look at who will be featuring in our film below.
