About the Event

How did Mary feel as she rode into Bethlehem on that fateful night?  What went through Joseph’s mind as he searched for lodging, turned away at every door?  How did the inn keeper react when the shepherds came to his stable, looking for the Messiah?

What if they could tweet?

This December, join the group that brought you "EaTR" as they return to explore the birth of the Messiah in Christmas: A Twitter Reenactment.  Follow a group of actors as they recreate the Christmas story in real-time, delving into the emotions of that historic night - all in 140-character tweets.

We are a group of filmmakers with one thing in common – our faith in a risen Christ.  Our goal is to use our creativity to design media that honors God.  Please visit our parent site, http://www.christianfilmmakers.org/, to read more about our mission and meet our friends.

We’re collaborating our talents – producing, directing, acting, writing, web and graphic design – to ask the question, “What was it like to witness the birth of Christ?”  Through the use of Twitter accounts, our actors will portray the thoughts and emotions of the people who saw the child face-to-face.

We believe our King came to earth to die, and we want you to know what that means for us.  By reenacting the story, we hope to show you how God has impacted our lives and our filmmaking with His power.  We pray you’ll follow along.

We believe the Bible is the only true account of the Christmas story.  Therefore, the characterizations and narrative of this reenactment are fictional interpretations of the story found in Scripture.  While we did our best to remain faithful to the Biblical account, we cannot guarantee that everything in this reenactment is correct.  All opinions expressed on this website or during the reenactment are solely the opinion of the party expressing them and do not necessarily represent the opinions of http://www.christianfilmmakers.org/ or its administrators.  All Scripture quoted on this website is taken from the King James Version of the Bible.

"But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name." - John 20:31
