I Can Only Imagine, (Lionsgate, 2018), is the inspiring and unknown true story behind MercyMe's beloved, chart topping song that brings ultimate hope to so many. The song "I Can Only Imagine" not only topped the Christian music charts, it was also a major hit on country and contemporary radio stations as well.

Before he became the lead singer of MercyMe, Bart Millard suffered through a painful childhood, which led to him building walls around his heart, and ultimately to the writing of this song. Based on a true story, this powerful movie deals with the relationship between Millard and his father. It is a gripping story of forgiveness, redemption, and salvation.

The I Can Only Imagine Movie License includes the I Can Only Imagine feature film on DVD and an Authorized Public Exhibition License. The U.S. Copyright Act requires a license to legally show a movie in a public venue, including a church, school, camp, etc. Your license gives you permission to promote and show the film to public audiences as often as you like for the next 12 months. The license options are based on a church's average weekly attendance.
