Bethel Music's Bright Ones will bring itsfirst ever feature film of the same name to cinemas nationwide this spring for a special one-night event. Presented by Fathom Events, families will be able to enjoy the film in over 700 select movie theaters on Apr. 22. In addition to the screening, Bright Ones will be available in select churches through the Fathom Affinity Network in partnership with Collide Media and Inciite.
Following the lives of three students, each embarking on a journey to find their identity while attending a performing arts high school, the film embraces themes of friendship, family and the courage to find your own voice.
"We truly feel like this film is the fruit of our community's culture - to see the next generation rising up and leading while being confident in their gifts and identities in Christ is a powerful thing," said CEO of Bethel Music, Joel Taylor. "As with all things we do, we pray that Bright Ones would not only be a reminder of truth, but also be a resource for other churches to foster their own community of 'bright ones.'"
The film also includes music from the album of the same name, released this past April to critical acclaim. Breaking the mold of kid's worship, Dove Award-winning Bright Onesthe album offers a diverse pop-influenced soundscape with a mixture of re-invented covers and original songs written by members of Bethel Music, performed by the youth of Bright Ones ages 12 to 16.
