The Religion Communicators Council has presented Wilbur Awards annualy since 1949. They honor excellence by individuals in secular media - print and online journalism, book publishing, broadcasting, and motion pictures - in communicating religious issues, values and themes.

I've just returned from Albuquerque, New Mexico where we were filming scenes for Kindling Group's feature length documentary Invisible People
(working title). We spent time with Mark Horvath, our main character and the organization 100K Homes. We were there for the 100K Homes Boot Camp and Registry Week. The goal of 100K Homes
is to find homes for 100,000 of the most vulnerable homeless by July 2013. We filmed Mark in action on the streets, conducting vulnerability surveys with Albuquerque's homeless population and gathering new interviews for his website
. His interview with Paul, which we filmed, is already posted on his site.
We are happy to announce that Do No Harm
has been selected as one of the films for this year's Southern Circuit Filmmakers Tour
, the nation's only regional tour of independent filmmakers, providing communities with an interactive way of experiencing independent film. Becca Schanberg (Producer, Director), and Susanne Suffredin (Co-producer, Editor) will be traveling through Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and South Carolina February 15-23, 2011 screening the film at various arts venues.
