New Rescued documentary to get nationwide screening through Freedom Film Distributors and National Movie Night project
 
The brand new, still unreleased documentary film Rescued will be screened nationwide through National Movie Night this weekend, a project of Freedom Film Distributors. A special pre-release version of the film will be shown by dozens of movie night hosts around the country November 18-21, to provide an early look at this powerful documentary about adoption and caring for orphans.  The executive producers, Randy Winton of Wintons Motion Pictures and Greg Hedrick of Hedrick Brothers Production, have announced they will partner with Freedom Film Distributors to promote the film nationwide through its grassroots network of independent distributors and through screenings of the film as part of the National Movie Night project. National Movie Night is designed to harness the energy of fans of family-oriented films by giving them a way to host movie nights for independently produced films in their communities.
 
Rescued is a film that calls Christians to heed the biblical call from James 1:27 to care for orphans and to consider adoption as a way of caring for them. Movie Night Hosts are being provided a complimentary pre-release copy of Rescued to show at their event this weekend.
 
 

 
Rescued has been entered as a contestant into the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF). Now in its seventh year, SAICFF has established itself as the premiere independent Christian film festival, and gives away the largest single cash prize of any film festival in the US – secular or Christian. Each year a check for $101,000 is awarded to the Best of Festival Jubilee Award winner. One of the key components of its mission is "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." For more info, visit: www.saicff.org

Family Worship is on the Rise and Gather the Family will Help

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Generations Radio with Kevin Swanson

Family Worship is on the rise.  Kevin Swanson of Generations Radio discussed family worship and interviewed Donald Whitney, author of Family Worship in the Bible, in History, and in Your Home, along with the founder of Freedom Film Distributors, to discuss this trend and what is driving it.  Ultimately, God calls on His people to worship him in daily life, and the application of this in the home is what is referred to as Family Worship.

 Gather the Family screenshot - father leading family worship  Gather the Family screenshot - Family Worship

Don Whitney shared the biblical and historical basis of this practice, and the founder of Freedom Film Distributors shared about the just-released Family Worship video titled Gather the Family, produced by Ken Carpenter of Franklin Springs Family Media.  Kevin Swanson declared

"It is the best video on family worship, on fatherhood, on discipleship in the home… I think it's the top number one best produced video on these things."

Gather the Family Family Worship DVD

Don's book is one of many Family Worship Resources found along with Gather the Family on the new website www.familyworshipresources.com.

 Family Worship in the Bible, in History, and in your Home by Don Whitney

You can help encourage the practice of daily family worship by hosting a movie night for Gather the Family the weekend of October 14-16, and by purchasing one or more copies of the Gather the Family DVD to share with friends and family.  Also consider asking your church to host a screening of the film for the Gather the Family National Movie Night and to consider purchasing some Family Worship Resources.

The Day of Independence

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Independence!

Independence Hall 1776
"Before God, I believe the hour has come. … All that I have, and all that I am, and all that I hope in this life, I am now ready here to stake upon it. And I leave off as I began, that live or die, survive or perish, I am for the Declaration. It is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment. Independence now, and Independence for ever!" 
John Adams, July 1, 1776

"Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved."
Lee Resolution, presented by Richard Henry Lee of the Virginia 
Adopted by the Continental Congress, July 2nd, 1776

 

This act of the Congress legally separated the American Colonies from Great Britain, and thus formed the birth of the American nation as a collection of sovereign states, independent of a foreign power.

 

John Adams wrote his wife Abigail on July 3 about the resolution of independence:
 
"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."
 

"Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof"
Leviticus 25:10

An Inconvenient Tax

 
Albert Einstein once wrote, "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax." The product of 95 years' worth of additions, subtractions, deductions, and exclusions, it has become such a headache that many are calling for it to be drastically simplified or even removed all together. With a looming fiscal crisis on the horizon, April 15th seems more like a scene from a B-Horror horror movie than a day to contribute to the common good of the nation. Political favoritism, ineffective social programs, and economic manipulations all reveal the need for tax reform. But how can Americans decide the best way to change the income tax when few people even understand the code or the vast extent to which it truly affects the country?

"An Inconvenient Tax" explores the history of the income tax and brings to light the causes of its many complexities. The film follows the tax through wars, economic booms, and some of the most significant presidencies in U.S. history. To help crack the code, the film employs the country’s top economic experts, commentators, and political voices. Noam Chomsky, Steve Forbes, Joseph Thorndike, Mike Huckabee, Charles Rossotti, Dave M. Walker, Neal Boortz, Michael Graetz, Daniel Shaviro, Leonard Burman, Herman Cain and others discuss not only the problems America faces in the tax code, but also give valuable insights on how to move forward. Finally, the film gives a voice to the creators of several potential tax reform solutions who claim to have found a better way. In a time when many Americans are concerned about the future of the economy, rising deficits, and unfair tax treatment, "An Inconvenient Tax" provides a crucial, honest look at the income tax. For the first time ever, Americans can engage in the tax debate with confidence and perhaps discover a new way to tax.

Gather the Family is Now Available – Part of the new Freedom Family Six Pack

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

It's Finally Here!

Gather the Family Family Worship DVD

Gather the Family is the newest release from Franklin Springs Family Media, and finally provides on video a coverage of the important topic of family worship.

Gather the Family screenshot - Family Worship

Gather the Family celebrates the “invitation to joy” that’s at the heart of family worship. Modern busy lifestyles conspire against families taking the time to gather together. But Gather the Family visits families across the country who are enjoying the benefits that abound when families take even a few minutes to worship God together during the week.

Gather the Family screenshot - father leading family worship

Far from a burden or drudgery, this film reveals the joy that emerges when family worship becomes a priority in the home.  Family worship holds the lasting value of building biblical truths in the foundation of a family. The experience also forges family unity in a uniquely rewarding way.

Much more than just a “how-to” instructional guide, Gather the Family inspires and encourages families to accept the “invitation to joy” that’s offered when they gather for family worship.

Why We Fight – Memorial Day Special

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

 

Freedom Film Distributors is excited to announce a new product fitting for this Memorial Day weekend: Frank Capra's masterpiece series on World War II called Why We Fight.

Why We Fight

Why We Fight is an incredible overview of the events leading up to America's involvement in World War II. Master filmmaker, Frank Capra, was commissioned by the US Army to produce this documentary series to show the soldiers what they were fighting for – and what evils they were fighting against. With nearly seven hours of actual footage from WWII, Why We Fight adds a new dimension to the study of history – a dimension that books and photos cannot match.
 
Allied leaders
 
Capra gives viewers a greater understanding of the issues, battles, heroes, and villains of WWII as told from America's perspective. The films in this series are as compelling as any war movie, but the battle-weary soldiers and civilians are not actors. The explosions and ensuing destruction are not the product of Hollywood special effects – they're real.
 
Far from perfect, Why We Fight stumbles over ideas like religious pluralism and FDR's New Deal. It's proof that history is not neutral – the bias of the teacher (in this case, Capra) shows through. As such, viewers will have their worldviews sharpened if they keep their minds engaged. Our hope with this series is that viewers will learn from the past so they can emulate the triumphs of past generations and avoid their mistakes.

Nationwide Premier of Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger Starts Tonight

Friday, April 29th, 2011

 

Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger

Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger is premiering nationwide starting tonight through National Movie Night.

The exciting new action film Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger, produced by the Persevero Films, will be premiered nationwide April 29 – May 1st, through National Movie Night, a project of Freedom Film Distributors. The Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger trailer video recently won Second-Place in the Drama TV Showcase Competition at the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention at the end of February.  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 distributors.

Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger is a pilot for a proposed episodic Christian action-thriller series for network broadcast, internet streaming, and DVD. As a pilot this episode is intended to serve as a concept for a series that, if approved by studios and networks for full-budget production, would expand. The pilot’s story itself would likely be extended and incorporated into the larger story of the entire 13-episode series.
 

 
When the individualistic, cynical soldier-for-hire Jimmy Valiant (Brant Harris) is recruited to protect an idealistic Texas state senator, the two are forced to work together to unravel a conspiracy that forces Jimmy to face a dilemma between his own lust for vengeance and his family's convictions about justice. After a tragedy in the family business, an anonymous client recruits Jimmy to shadow a controversial Texas State Senator. Jimmy must overcome his myopia as he initiates an investigation that uncovers some startling truths, and brings him face-to-face with the last man in the world that he ever wanted to meet again. Jimmy soon finds himself caught up in a conspiracy that threatens to undermine everything that he has come to trust.

Get your copy of Jimmy Valiant: Scions of Danger today! There are a very limited number left of the special edition produced for the National Movie Night premier that include special features on the making of the film.
 

National Movie Night premier of AGENDA:Grinding America Down is this weekend

Friday, December 10th, 2010

 

Agenda: Grinding America Down

Winner of the

2010 San Antonio Independent Film Festival

$101,000 Grand Prize Best of Festival award

 

Will Receive its

Nationwide Premier This Weekend

through

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

AGENDA: Grinding America Down is a new documentary film that exposes the long-advancing agenda of socialism in America, begun by Karl Marx and other revolutionary agents in the past all the way up to the present day. It demonstrates that the drastic changes in American society have been by design, and have successfully assaulted the Christian heritage and foundations of the nation.

 Curtis Bowers SAICFF acceptance speech
Writer/Director/Producer Curtis Bowers, a former Idaho lawmaker and graduate of the Christian Filmmakers Academy at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, was inspired to produce Agenda after a “Letter to the Editor” he penned about the immense changes in America’s culture became the feature story on the evening news and prompted protests at the Idaho State Capitol.

Dr. Ted Baehr of MovieGuide.org proclaimed "AGENDA: Grinding America Down is the most powerful exposé of the communist, socialist, progressive attempt to take over America produced so far.  AGENDA is absolutely brilliant for its clarity and well-researched understanding of the issues. It is must viewing."
Speaking of his partnership with Freedom Film Distributors, Bowers said, "The National Movie Night Project is making it very simple for families all over America to accomplish the goal of educating those around them by using the powerful tool of visual media to communicate truth.   My hope and prayer is that thousands of families across America will get involved with this project, so it will have a huge impact in turning America's culture back."
