Odyssey Networks is hosting The Faith and Media Conference in New York, September 30 to October 1, 2013. The Conference will include panels with religious media experts, including sessions on making documentaries, religious education through media, social media techniques and violence in media.
Odyssey Networks is a coalition of over 100 faith groups and individuals. It is service of the National Interfaith Cable Association. For over twenty years, Odyssey Networks has produced and aired thousands of hours of award-winning television programming, including documentaries, made for television movies, and series. Their productions and co-productions have aired on Hallmark Channel, National Geographic, History, BBC-1 and numerous international outlets.

The conference is a reminder of the current interest in faith based content and the increasing role of technology and media in reaching religious audiences.
