Best Documentary award-winning film "IndoctriNation" reveals the anti-God nature of American public education, will be screened nationwide through National Movie Night this weekend
 
Esmont, VA, 3/16/2012 — The award winning new film, IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America, produced by serial documentarian Colin Gunn, will be premiered nationwide March 16-18 through the National Movie Night, a project of Freedom Film Distributors. Traveling all over America with his family in a big yellow school bus and conducting a series of candid conversational interviews, Colin Gunn, a Scottish filmmaker, actor, and homeschool father of seven children living in Texas, is on a quest to discover the origins of our modern educational system. What he discovers is a masterful design that sought to replace God’s plan for training up the next generation with a humanistic, man-centered program that fragmented the family and undermined the influence of the Church and its Great Commission.
 
Part documentary, part testimonial — a confessional and a rebuke, this film is above all a challenge and an encouragement to millions of Christians who need to know what history, experience, and the Scriptures have to say about what is perhaps the pivotal issue of our time: the discipleship and training of the next generation. IndoctriNation is premiering nationwide through National Movie Night, which is designed to harness the energy of fans of independently produced films by giving them a way to host movie nights in their communities. Freedom Film Distributors will also promote and distribute the film nationwide through its grassroots network of distributors and affiliates.
 

 
At the 2012 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF), IndoctriNation took the Jubilee award for Best Documentary, and was runner up for the $101,000 Best of Festival award, the largest grand prize for any independent film festival. Upon receiving the ‘Best Documentary’ award, Gunn noted that Indoctrination was made for “others out of genuine love for the concerns of children in America. We were so blessed to give this message. And at the end of the film [we] make it clear: The problem with public schools is that [they] drive children away from Christ. And that was the real reason for making this film, and we pray that the Lord was glorified in it.” Heralded as the right film at the right time by the right person, IndoctriNation has been critically acclaimed by leading Christian thinkers.
 
Indoctrination movie
 
Cal Thomas (America’s most widely syndicated op-ed columnist) writes:
 
"Every Christian parent with a child in a government school should see this [movie] and be forced to confront their unwillingness to do what Scripture requires for the children on loan to them by God. A mass exodus from government schools is the only way to preserve the souls and minds of our children." IndoctriNation is a feature length documentary film that takes the audience on a panoramic exploration of one of the most important and controversial issues in the history of mankind, the issue of education.
 
 
 
Ted Baehr of MovieGuide exclaimed:
 
"This is the most important issue facing the Body of Christ, an issue that must be addressed and put to rest forever. IndoctriNation is an extremely important movie. Every church in America should show IndoctriNation. Every Christian should show IndoctriNation to their friends."

SAICFF Jubilee Awards for Best in Christian Film

Thursday, March 1st, 2012
 
SAICFF 2012 Jubilee awards stage
 
This year’s San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF) was by all accounts, a fantastic event. SAICFF has become the largest independent Christian film festival in the world, and awards the largest prize for any independent film festival – the $101,000 Best of Festival Jubilee Award.  SAICFF Founder Doug Phillips proclaimed "Our mission is to inspire, encourage, reward and ultimately to build a replacement industry for Hollywood. Too many simply complain about Hollywood's darkness. Our mission is to light candles of hope by affirming those films that exalt what is true, good, and noble."
 
SAICFF 2012 Christian Filmmakers Academy Doug Phillips and panel
 
The Christian Filmmakers Academy ran for three days before the film festival, and was a great time of learning and networking. Students at the CFA were treated this year to talks by film industry veterans like Kirk Cameron, Stephen Kendrick, Geoff Botkin, Tryg Jacobsen and others. There was more emphasis this year on the business side of filmmaking – film promotion and distribution – which is much-needed from our perspective as one of the only alternative film distribution companies around. We’re excited that there is now more discussion of this fourth part of the SAICFF mission statement: “To facilitate the development of alternative and independent vehicles for producing and distributing films outside the Hollywood machine, which will build, bless, and benefit the American family.”
 
The Film Festival was an exciting lineup: six semi-finalists for Feature Film, 25 semi-finalists for documentary, seven semi-finalists each for Creation and Great Commission categories, 16 semi-finalists for short film, nine semi-finalists for Young Filmmaker, and five semi-finalists each for Promotional Media and Commercial Advertisement. 
 
SAICFF 2012 Jubilee winners - Fernandez, Gunn, Kendrick, Doug Phillips, Garcia, King
 
The 2012 SAICFF Jubilee Award Winners included:

SAICFF 2012 Steven Kendrick acceptance speech for Courageous

Courageous producer Steven Kendrick gave a moving acceptance speech. "I want to take this opportunity, as we made a movie about fatherhood, to honor my father," Kendrick stated. "He was the chainbreaker in our family . . . and there's no one who's had a greater impact on our lives [as] his sons."

"The motto of [Courageous] was: Dads need to stand up and turn their hearts toward the Lord and say, 'As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,'" continued Kendrick. "And it was our Dad that taught us to do that, and it's an honor to pass on that legacy to our children."
 
Three of these Jubilee award winners are currently scheduled to be screened nationwide in the coming months through National Movie Night, a project of Freedom Film Distributors designed to enable grassroots promotion of independently produced films. We are working on adding other finalists and award winners to the National Movie Night schedule and our catalog of independent Christian films.
 
IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America
 
The nationwide premiere of the SAICFF Best Documentary winner IndoctriNation is scheduled for March 16-18thIndoctriNation takes a hard look at the true state of public education in America, its humanistic origins, and whether Christians should be giving their children over to the state education system.
 
IndoctriNation producer Colin Gunn stated that Indoctrination was made for "others out of genuine love for the concerns of children in America. We were so blessed to give this message. And at the end of the film [we] make it clear: The problem with public schools is that [they] drive children away from Christ. And that was the real reason for making this film, and we pray that the Lord was glorified in it."
 
Two Hats - 2012 SAICFF Best Great Commission Film winner
 
The nationwide premiere of the SAICFF Best Great Commission film winner Two Hats is scheduled for March 30th – April 1st. This moving documentary about Brad and Deborah Wells and their 7 children leaving Idaho to go to the missions field in Papau New Guinea follows them through both setbacks and accomplishments as they share God’s Word, raise a family, and establish the country’s first Christian radio station.
 
Two Hats producer/director Andrew Garcia accepted the award, saying "This is an incredible honor, and I want to start by thanking my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Without Him, this film would never have come to be. . . . And then, of course, the missionaries who were in the film . . . and the thousands of missionaries all over the world. Even as we sit here tonight, who are faithfully serving — not with eye-service as men-pleasers — but as unto the Lord. This award is dedicated to them."
 
Crying Wolf - 2012 SAICFF winner of Best Creation Film
 
The winner of the SAICFF Best Creation film Crying Wolf will be screened nationwide for “Earth Day” weekend April 20-22. Crying Wolf is about exposing the lies and proclaiming the truth about what the movement to bring back wolves to Yellowstone – and the rest of America – was, and is, really about, examined through the lens of biblical stewardship and conservation.
 
"[T]his project wasn't [fundamentally] about wolves or wolf re-introduction," remarked producer Jeff King, "but about reintroducing to the world biblical concepts of stewardship and dominion."

Challenging Call to take Hazardous Journeys at the 2012 SAICFF

Saturday, February 25th, 2012
 
SAICFF 2012 Doug Phillips casting a vision for the Hazardous Journeys Society
 
Today was a major day for viewing films. Here at the festival, the Young Filmmaker and Short Film categories are heavily anticipated, and both began showing today. After lunch, the theater room showing the short films was filled to capacity. By the end of the day, all the feature films and most of the documentaries have shown at least once. 
 
By the end of tomorrow, most of these same films will have been shown twice. There are usually four different theatres showing different categories of film at the same time, so attendees usually get to see about half the films. Because I’ve seen about 10 of the films before (significant thanks to the National Movie Night program, which screened several of them recently), I will get to see nearly all of them.
 
The evening program included performances by Charlie Zahm and George Sarris, as well as the worldwide premier of three of Vision Forum’s new short films, shot by the Leclerc brothers in Iceland: Dominion, Risk, and Manhood. Doug Phillips also cast his vision for the Hazardous Journeys Society. To sum, National Geographic and other nature programing TV and media which promote evolutionistic scientism have had the upper hand for too long. This is our Father’s world, and the Hazardous Journeys Society exists to document the world where Christ is Lord and King.

Mr. Phillips called for independent filmmakers to take teams all over the globe, to 7 continents, 5 oceans, and 195 countries by the year 2022. In the next 24 months, Vision Forum hopes to take a venture on the Virgin Galactic private space shuttle to the next frontier: Space.

The San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF) begins!

Friday, February 24th, 2012

 

Doug Phillips opening 2012 SAICFF

Today was the first day of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF). Two special events happened this morning: Vision forum offered a special photography class for attendees of the Academy, and one of the producers held a special pre-screening of a yet to be released film, ‘Remember’. 
 
After a brief lunch break, we headed over to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center for the first session of films. Six categories of film opened in the afternoon, followed by the opening ceremonies around 6:30 p.m. The evening premieres included Captivated, Crying Wolf, Detained, and Seasons of Grey. Charlie Zahm also gave a concert on the San Antonio Riverwalk. 
 
Voting for the audience choice has begun!
 

Final Day of the 2012 SAICFF Christian Filmmakers Academy

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

 

2012 SAICFA Doug Phillips and panel

Wednesday was the final day of the SAICFA, or Christian Filmmakers Academy. Once again, Extreme Meetings provided some statistics about the filmmakers in attendance. Christian Filmmakers primarily watch PG-13 rated films (39%) on DVD (71%). When they rent, they like to use Netflix (41%) and Redbox (25%). About half of the attendees see 1-2 films in a theater per year (49%), and the rest are split between those that visit the theater 1-2 times per month, and those who have never seen a film on the big screen.
 
Today’s theme was the business of film, focusing especially on distribution, fulfillment and marketing. Kirk Cameron, Stephen Kendrick, Philip and Chris Leclerc, Curtis Bowers, Collin GunnJohn Moore, David Cook, J.D. King, Geoff Botkin and Doug Phillips all took the stage to offer their unique insights into the business end of film production. One consensus introduced by Curtis Bowers is the importance of grassroots film promotion. Once people are excited about a film, they want to tell their friends.  This is the idea that motivates our National Movie Night project.  The day ended with Kirk Cameron discussing his new film, Monumental.
 
Tryg Jacobson opened the morning with the ‘Brand Identification Model’, a simple system to evaluate your brand. Ben & Jerry’s ice cream was an example: “Ben & Jerry’s serves ice cream lovers who don’t do things by halves [or halfway]. Ben & Jerry’s fills your face full of flavor so you can feel gloriously righteous about your indulgence. It is outrageously packed full of the stuff we love to love.”
 
Colin Gunn remarked on the importance of tone in documentaries, saying, “Theology without art is impassionate. Art without theology is selfishness.”
John Moore on distribution noted a maxim that his father had taught him. That is, wherever you are, you are an ambassador for yourself, your business, and your brand. So always be professional.
 
Oh, and one more thing, unanimously agreed to by the panel: if you can, win the SAICFF Jubilee Best of Festival award; It’s one of the best things you can do for distribution and sales. Thursday the festival begins, and the $101,000 best of festival winner will be decided. Who are you rooting for?

Report from the Christian Filmmakers Academy

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012
 
 
SAICFF 2012 Christian Filmmakers Academy, courtesy of JackChapa.com
 
Yesterday was the second day of the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Academy (SAICFA). This year, the academy is equipped with automatic voting systems, and the day began with about 15 minutes of polling and research. Some surprising results: over 50% of attendees aren’t currently working on a project. 7% came to look for new films to finance.
 
Another highlight of the day was Justin Tolley’s lecture called, “I once was at Lost, but now am found.” Here, he discussed the difference between working on the set of Lost, and working on the set of Courageous.
 
The evening Keynote was split between retired advertising executive Tryg Jacobson and Doug Phillips. First, Tryg delivered an eye-opening lecture on branding for filmmakers. The key word of branding is trust: making and keeping promises. He also discussed the power of “mental real estate”—how companies can corner a certain word, like Volvo owns “safe” or Heinz meaning “thick.”
 
Then, Doug Phillips spoke on the need for action, and not just story. Here are some quotes:
 
“This is my father’s world—you may not take it!”
 
“Don’t pretend to be an expert on a subject you don’t own.”
 
“The reason some of us don’t write well is that we don’t study well.”
 
“There are no bench warmers in the Army of God.”

Family Worship Month and Family Worship Sunday

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012
 

Pastors Unite to Promote Family Bible Reading in Recognition of Family Worship Month

 
RICHMOND, VA,  Jan. 24, 2012  — January is Family Worship Month and pastors around the world are speaking to their congregations Sunday, January 29th about the importance of reading the scriptures, praying and singing together as a family in the home.  Sign the Family Worship Month Declaration.
 
The release of the films Courageous and Gather the Family have ignited thousands of men to become spiritual leaders in the home. Additionally, well known authors, theologians, and Christian leaders have stepped out in front of the Family Worship Movement to humbly call the church back to this historic, and life-changing spiritual discipline.  Some of the prominent leaders include the following:
 

Joel R. Beeke

"As goes the home, so goes the church, and so goes the nation. Therefore it is of vital importance to us that we, the ministers of the Word, promote family worship in our congregations."
 

Ray Rhodes

"The Reformation era left a rich legacy of family worship. The goal of family worship is for you and your family to be exposed to the character of God so that you may know and worship Him. Family worship involves regular family gatherings and will always include Scripture readings and prayer. However, you may also use other material that will help you to focus on the great work of God throughout history. Remember, as the Puritans taught, your home is a "little church" where Christ is to be worshipped. The little church does not replace the local church; however, faithfulness in family worship will greatly enhance the congregational worship of God."
 

Don Whitney

"In conjunction with Family Worship Month, many Christian leaders have already signed the Family Worship Declaration. Sunday, January 29, 2012 is Family Worship Sunday and a multitude of pastors will encourage their congregations to begin the practice of Family Worship in the home. You can also visit the website, www.FamilyWorshipMonth.com to read articles and watch videos explaining the importance of, and how to engage in, Family Worship."

 

Jerry Marcellino

"There is a tool that could possibly do the most generational good in our reforming efforts, but it has been either lost or grossly neglected, even in reforming churches! This tool is called family worship. Family worship is the daily practice of Christian homes offering together true "worth-ship" to the living God. It is to be a purposefully-scheduled, daily worship service in every Christian home (Joshua 24:15). This God-honoring tool for reformation is one that should be given high priority by every church in its ongoing work."
 

Ted Tripp

"It is not possible to overstate the benefits of family worship. God is acknowledged, not just theoretically, but practically; God is in each day's agenda. Family needs are brought before God. Each member of the family is reminded daily that in God we find the life that is truly life. Hearing members of the family pray provides insight into their thoughts of God. Each day provides new opportunities to impress children with the importance of knowing God. Organizing life around God is a powerful expression of family priorities."
 

Terry Johnson

"If your children are in your home for 18 years, you have 6,570 occasions (figuring a six day week) for family worship. What is the cumulative impact of just 15 minutes of this each day, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, for 18 years?"
 

Ray Comfort

"In Old Testament times, people built altars to God to commemorate something He had done. Altars served as a memorial to teach succeeding generations about God and His character. Gathering for a family "altar" or a devotional time is a good way to teach your children about God and His ways."

 

Whitney Kuniholm

"Scripture Union's ministry focuses in two vital areas: children and the Bible. We strive to share God's love with children and lead them to follow Jesus in obedience to Jesus' command to "let the little children come to me and not hinder them". We work to help people of all ages to meet God every day through Bible reading and prayer because God's word is truly "a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" for all who read and obey it."
 

Steve Demme

"God is alive. The Almighty, All-Loving God wants to see your kids around the throne more than you do. And God wants to teach your kids, and is capable of teaching your kids. Now He will use you, because He designed you to be doing it."
 
Family Worship Month is an inter-denominational movement comprised of leading ministries and Christian leaders designed to restore the historical practice of family worship.
 
An annual call each January to pastors, fathers, and mothers, Family Worship Month culminates in Family Worship Sunday which is January 29, 2012 when pastors from around the world will call their congregations and their own households to spend time together in prayer and reading God's Word.

Please don't forget to sign the Family Worship Month Declaration to show your support!

Family Worship is making a comeback in the church – Gather the Family documents this trend and premieres this weekend Nationwide through Freedom Film Distributors and the National Movie Night project. New DVD shows practical implementation of Courageous Resolution.
 
Esmont, VA, 5/27/2011 —   Gather the Family: An Inside Look at Family Worship, a new DVD by Franklin Springs Family Media and distributed by Freedom Film Distributors, demonstrates a great first step for men inspired by the Courageous Resolution, or who seek the tools to become the spiritual leader of their home.  Join thousands of families across the United States that are exploring the blessing and peace and that come from making family worship a regular part of the family routine. Gather the Family is a look inside the walls of seven different homes to see how they go about the practice of family devotions and family worship.
 
 

 
Gather the Family premieres nationwide through National Movie Night this weekend, November 11-13, where local movie night hosts will gather the family of friends and neighbors to expose them to this inspiring profile in family spiritual life. National Movie Night is designed to harness the energy of fans of independently produced films by giving them a way to host movie nights in their communities. Freedom Film Distributors will also promote and distribute the film nationwide through its grassroots network of independent film distributors and via its Freedom Web Store and affiliate team.
 
Family Worship is as old as the church itself, and was a regular part of family life from the time of the Great Reformation until falling out of practice with the disruption of family life due to the industrial revolution and the advent of modern education. Family Worship was one of the daily activities that defined American colonial life, and was one of the chief reasons that America was the most literate nation on earth (perhaps ever) by the early 1800s. Some of the greatest English and American pastors and theologians clearly demonstrate its central role through their writings, such as in these examples:
 
We deeply want a revival of domestic religion. The Christian family was the bulwark of godliness in the days of the puritans, but in these evil times hundreds of families of so-called Christians have no family worship, no restraint upon growing sons, and no wholesome instruction or discipline. How can we hope to see the kingdom of our Lord advance when His own disciples do not teach His gospel to their own children? Oh, Christian men and women, be thorough in what you do and know and teach! Let your families be trained in the fear of God and be yourselves "holiness unto the Lord"; so shall you stand like a rock amid the surging waves of error and ungodliness which rage around us.   – Charles Spurgeon
 
 
Every Christian family ought to be as it were a little church, consecrated to Christ, and wholly influenced and governed by his rules. And family education and order are some of the chief means of grace. If these fail, all other means are likely to prove ineffectual. If these are duly maintained, all the means of grace will be likely to prosper and be successful.   — Jonathan Edwards
 
 
Join us this weekend – host a Gather the Family movie night by inviting another family over, or just on your own, to become inspired to spend time together studying God's Word and giving thanks to Him. Gather the Family and discover the Joy of Family Worship.

Resisting the Green Dragon documentary will premiere nationwide through National Movie Night

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
 
Explosive new Environmental Documentary to get Nationwide Screening through Freedom Film Distributors and National Movie Night project
 
Esmont, VA, 4/12/2011 — The powerful new documentary film Resisting the Green Dragon, produced by the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, will be premiered nationwide on Earth Day weekend, April 22-24, through National Movie Night, a project of Freedom Film Distributors. The Resisting the Green Dragon documentary is the introduction to a larger 12 part DVD series that provides a Biblical analysis and critique of the radical environmentalist movement. The series educates and warns Christians of the dangers of this movement that seeks to lure them into unwise actions and ways of thinking about the environment. National Movie Night is designed to harness the energy of fans of independently produced films by giving them a way to host movie nights in their communities. Freedom Film Distributors will also promote and distribute the film and its accompanying 12 part DVD series nationwide through its grassroots network of distributors.
 

 
At a critical moment in the global environmental debate, many of America’s top Christian leaders have joined with the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to produce an explosive new 12-part DVD series and introductory documentary film called Resisting the Green Dragon. The series sounds the alarm about dangerous environmental extremism and brings a Biblical viewpoint on environmental issues and creation stewardship to evangelical churches, ministries, and schools. The new video series comes at a time when environmental advocacy groups are frustrated that their top priority for the past two decades—a global treaty to curtail fossil fuel use to fight alleged catastrophic global warming—is losing steam.
 
Resisting the Green Dragon is therefore particularly timely because it not only refutes the scientific case for dangerous manmade warming and other “crises,” but also exposes how environmental organizations use sophisticated media campaigns and even seek increased global governance to promote their agenda among policy makers, religious leaders, and youth. “One of the greatest threats to society and the church today is the multifaceted environmentalist movement,” says Cornwall Alliance founder and national spokesman Dr. E. Calvin Beisner. “There isn’t an aspect of life that it doesn’t seek to force into its own mold.”
 
Many well-known Christian leaders agree. Focus on the Family’s Tom Minnery joined Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission’s Richard Land, Concerned Women for America’s Wendy Wright, Home School Legal Defense Association’s Michael Farris, National Religious Broadcasters’ Frank Wright, WallBuilders’ David Barton, and radio talk-show host Janet Parshall in providing commentary for and recommendation of the 12-part DVD series.

The National Movie Night project is one component of the strategy of Freedom Film Distributors to build alternative and independent vehicles for the promotion of independent films that uphold the values of Faith, Family, and Freedom. National Movie Night establishes a schedule of nationally coordinated family movie nights that will focus promotion for a particular film in a defined date range. This will allow Freedom Film Distributors to leverage its national promotional campaigns through its Movie Night Hosts at the local level for the film screenings they are hosting. Movie Night Hosts are provided with planning guidance and promotional tools to set up and promote their movie night, and with DVD packs to distribute to event attendees. The goal is to provide a conduit for grassroots activism to promote independently produced family-friendly films to diverse audiences all around the country.
