He is the author of The Film, Films and Values, Movie Christs and Antichrists and Cinema Down Under, A Movie Lectionary.

Fr. Malone intends to teach film criticism, popular films survey and movie exegesis. The three-day seminar will be public. It is especially open to catechists, academicians, diocesan media workers and directors, heads of seminaries and media practitioners. Asian participants will be invited to the seminar. Funding for the “Film and Faith Seminar “ could come from SIGNIS.
