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."

Freedom Film Distributors celebrates its 2nd Birthday

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Freedom Film Distributors logo

Two years ago this week, Freedom Film Distributors officially launched our effort to bring independently produced films that promote the values of Faith, Family, and Freedom to communities across the nation and the world through grassroots promotion and distribution efforts. It has been a challenging journey thus far, but we are thankful for the opportunity that God has given us to help families across the country get involved in promoting great movies in their local area.

FFD families at Family Economics Conference

We have independent distributors across the country that are raising awareness about independently produced films through networking, attended local and regional events as exhibitors, and through hosting movie nights. Many of our distributor families have found great fulfillment in working together as a family in a simple and straightforward family business, one that even young children can participate in and develop important life and business skills such as planning, accounting, marketing, sales, and customer service. Most distributors have joined us because they love the films that we promote – many have had life-changing influence on them – and their passion for sharing the messages of the films motivates them in their local promotion and distribution efforts. If you love family films and want to promote them in the context of a family business, please consider joining us as a distributor.

National Movie Night - Join us and host a movie night in your community!

Our National Movie Night project started last fall by premiering several new films nationwide, including Agenda: Griding America Down, which won the $101,000 Best of Festival Grand Prize at the 2010 San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, and Divided, a controversial film that has had a huge impact on they way that Christians consider children and youth ministry. Since then, National Movie Night has held nationwide premieres of Resisting the Green Dragon, Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger, An Inconvenient Tax, Dale Evans: Beyond the Happy Trails, Gather the Family, Crying Wolf, and a special pre-release screening of Rescued: The Heart of Adoption and Caring for Orphans. There are several new films being released soon that we will be adding to the 2012 schedule, so if you'd like to host a movie night to expose friends, family, and neighbors to these great films, please Sign Up to Host a Movie Night today!

 

The Films

Here are some of the significant films that Freedom Film Distributors has worked to promote these past two years.

A More Perfect Union DVD

A More Perfect Union is the only feature-length film that portrays the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and is an important educational tool needed to provide the understanding needed to restore the American Republic.

 

AGENDA

AGENDA: Grinding America Down is a groundbreaking documentary about the Marxist agenda to systematically take control of the major institutions of American power.

 

DIVIDED

Divided has become a very controversial film that discusses the modern ministry model for children and youth ministry, how that model has failed, and what the Bible says about the issue.

 

Indoctrination movie

IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America is a breakthrough documentary that reviews the history of government education in American – its founders and their worldview, the development of the public education institution, and the effects it has had on our culture and society.

 

Gather the Family is the first film that portrays families practicing Family Worship and provides an essential tool for fathers that want to lead their families spiritually.

 

The Homestead Blessings series is a one-of-a-kind collection of practical how-to videos on the lost arts of homemaking and homesteading.  From gardening, canning and cooking to candlemaking, sewing, and soapmaking, this series has something for every current or aspiring homemaker.

Eye-opening new documentary exposé of the wolf movement in the United States, Crying Wolf – Exposing the Wolf Reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park to get Nationwide Screening through Freedom Film Distributors and National Movie Night project

Crying Wolf documentary

Esmont, VA, 12/2/2011 — The eye-opening new documentary film Crying Wolf, produced by 20 year old filmmaker Jeffrey D. King, will be premiered nationwide December 2-4, through National Movie Night, a project of Freedom Film Distributors. 18 year old King had no idea what he was getting himself into. Having grown up in rural Montana with a love of God, His creation, and filmmaking, he wanted to have his first major project include all three. Two years of searching, questioning, and many eye-opening interviews later, what was going to be a film about wolves turned into to something much bigger: An exposé of one of the most covered up big-government and environmental frauds of his generation. Crying Wolf – Exposing the Wolf Reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park 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 all through the lens of biblical stewardship and conservation. Crying Wolf 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 independent film distributors and via its Freedom Web Store and affiliate team.

At a crucial time in the ecosystem management debate, the hour long Crying Wolf tells the side of the story that you won’t hear anywhere else. The documentary was released for a free online viewing on September 12, 2011 and has already generated over 26,500 views. The film alerts us to the dangerous agendas which lie at the root of the wolf issue that are designed to take away the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness of the people of the United States of America and unite them under the banner of collectivist ideology. The movie is released at a critical moment as many environmental and animal rights advocacy groups are pushing fiercely to force their agendas through using any means possible all under the name of “saving” mother earth. Crying Wolf – Exposing the Wolf Reintroduction to Yellowstone National Park is particularly timely because these “Yellowstone” wolves are now spilling over from Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming and into the states of Washington, Oregon, Utah, the Dakotas, and Colorado. To make matter worse, these states are ignorantly welcoming these destructive predators and the destructive agendas behind them, with open arms. Similar wolf developments are happening in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, and Arizona. Crying Wolf is a call for liberty loving Americans everywhere to wake up.

“Jeffrey D. King’s recent production, ‘Crying Wolf’ has buoyed my hope for our national future amidst the national dilemma resulting from the environmental/animal rights assault on the rights, freedom, culture, and traditions of the United States of America,” says retired United States Fish and Wildlife biologist Jim Beers. “My faith in future generations to provide for the Nation, despite the discouraging half-truths and lies that bombard them daily, is not only renewed but happily confirmed.”

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.

Crying Wolf movie
 
Freedom Film Distributors is pleased to announce that it has partnered with JD King to promote his new documentary Crying Wolf through the National Movie Night project, premiering nationwide on the weekend of December 2-4, 2011. 
 
JD King, a 20 year old filmmaker, made this film over the past two years to discover what was going on with the wolf reintroduction in Yellowstone National Park, and the reasons behind it. What he discovered is maddening.
 

 
 
He was interviewed last week on American Outdoors Radio, and had ample time to discuss the issues in the film. I highly recommend you get it from iTunes or download the show here:
 
 
You can help promote the film and raise awareness about this important issue by signing up to host a movie night for the National Movie Night premiere of Crying Wolf December 2-4. Please share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and email.

PS – we have a bunch of other new film premieres in November, so be sure to check the schedule and sign up for those as well!
