‘Reel Faith’ Brings Movie Reviews With Catholic Perspective

Posted on May 24, 2013 in DeSales Blog, NET, Press Room, Reel Faith

Do Hollywood and independent filmmakers know that Catholics are the largest sector of their U.S. marketplace? Nearly 78 million Americans are Catholic, 25 percent of the U.S. population, and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn thinks big with its movie review show REEL FAITH.

Friday, May 24 at 8 PM ET, New Evangelization Television (NET) premiers its fourth season of the weekly REEL FAITH movie review show. NET is a branch of DeSales Media Group, official media outreach of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn.

People around the world can tune-in by clicking the “Watch Now” button at NETNY.net; REEL FAITH airs on Cablevision
Channel 30 and Time Warner Cable Channel 97 in the New York metro area; and across the USA NET programs are on Verizon FiOS On Demand. To watch REEL FAITH on Verizon FiOS, select the “Religion” folder, then “NET Catholic.”

Dubbed the “Catholic Siskel and Ebert,” David DiCerto (former film critic for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Office for Film and Broadcasting) and Steven Greydanus (film critic for the National Catholic Register and creator of DecentFilms.com) host REEL FAITH with the vision of spreading the Gospel message while encouraging greater film literacy.

The new season of REEL FAITH will feature a tribute to the late Roger Ebert, who greatly influenced both hosts.
