This spring, moviegoers will get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the world’s-largest annual Christian concert tour with This Is Winter Jam, in theaters Tuesday, Apr. 19.

The film gives moviegoers backstage access and interviews with Winter Jam artists past and present, along with an exclusive world premiere of For King & Country's "Priceless" music video.

Eddie Carswell, Winter Jam creator and NewSong founding member, is pleased to bring the Winter Jam experience to theaters.
“We are thrilled to partner with Fathom Events and Word Entertainment to bring our story, our ministry and a whole new perspective on our tour to the big screen for current and new fans alike,” said Carswell. “We continue to be humbled and awestruck to witness God’s redeeming story through this tour. Only He can take the credit and the glory for Winter Jam’s platform and its phenomenal growth.”
Kymberli Frueh, vice president of programming at Fathom Events, commented on the one-night event.
“This Is Winter Jam is a can’t-miss opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the biggest names in Christian music on tour,” Frueh said. “Fathom is looking forward to bringing this content to theater audiences.”
The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular annually ranks among the top first-quarter tours in the world and has helped provide a platform for the gospel in major arenas nationwide since 1995. Founded and hosted by NewSong, last year Winter Jam played to more than 700,000 people across the country, shattering the tour’s previous attendance records.
