8Beats – A New Look at the Beatitudes – Video

8Beats is an exciting effort at evangelization through film.  Slated for release in 2018, 8Beats is an Anthology of eight short films, each a contemporary reflection on one of the 8 Beatitudes of Matthew’s gospel.  Produced by over 70 of the best Catholic filmmakers in North America, it is a special collaborative project sponsored by Catholic Creatives and the Crossroads Initiative.  It is distinct in that it is being produced by Catholic millennials for millennials who don’t yet know the beauty of Christ and his Church, but are searching for meaning and appreciative of beauty.
