Very Important: No nudity, vulgarity, or themes not suitable to younger audiences will be considered as an official selection. We will select the top 10 films in each category as nominees and award the top film $250. All projects will be reviewed for content relating to Christian Values. Top projects will be judged in 10 areas, such as creativity, production value, sound, etc. Projects should be faith-based, family friendly, and inspirational. The ultimate goal is to have your projects reach out to people that may have never heard of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also want to encourage our brothers and sisters in Christ with your projects.

Submit your project via FilmFreeway

This is our first year creating this online event, for your benefit. We want to give top filmmakers an outlet and accolades to add to their projects. Marketing your films will be easier with a good track record. Your business can also grow with recognition of your talent.

We look forward to being a part of your history.
