ACM has long had an emphasis on defending the faith in and through the arts.  Even though it has tended to focus on writing, it has also spent time on other formats, such as movies.  (A conference we hosted enjoyed presentations by Brian Godawa, Dallas Jenkins, and Jason Jones, for example).  It was decided that now is the time to take our vision for apologetics and the arts to all the art forms!
