The Hopeful comes to Silver Spring
Feb 2, 2023, 3:21 PM
Silver Spring, Maryland (February 2, 2023) – Hope Channel International (HCI) recently hosted a private screening of The Hopeful at the (AFI) Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in downtown Silver Spring.
More than 100 prominent persons and influencers attended the event, which introduced them to an independent cinematic project that tells an encouraging tale of courage, hope, war, and true love that begins with the end of the world.
Executive Producers of this project, the first of its kind for HCI, are Derek Morris, Vyacheslav Demyan, and Kevin Christenson, while Emmy award winner, Kyle Portbury, is the visionary behind this stunning period piece based in the late nineteenth century.
Portbury explained that “with The Hopeful, I wanted to tell a story about anticipation because we all anticipate on a daily basis. It is a powerful human emotion…. I can’t wait to share The Hopeful with a wide audience when it releases in cinemas this Fall.”
The pre-screening of The Hopeful exceeded expectations. The audience was very interactive — crying, laughing, responding to moments that hit close to the heart, and ultimately resonating with the exciting feeling that, as Hope Studios Director, Kevin Christenson said, “Even 150 years later, hope is on the way.”
Media and Communications Manager for the Ministerial Department at the General Conference, Jonathan Walter, described the event as “an exciting cinematic journey telling the narrative of God’s people”.
“I’m very excited to see this spread around the world,” he stated. “It’s a movie you won’t want to miss; I think people will be inspired when they see how God has led His people. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie play around the world.”
The Hopeful is scheduled to be released in theatres later this year.
