Okay, okay. Hollywood is diverse, and there are tons of movies out there covering just about every conceivable viewpoint.
But that doesn’t change the fact that it still predominately tries to force liberalism and secularism down the American people’s throats.
A number of organizations are trying to change America’s cinematic landscape, one movie at a time. But where can you find these conservative, Christian, or conservative Christian masterpieces? A film festival from the following list is probably a good bet.
I’ve also listed a few organizations that support conservative/Christian films in other ways as well.
Christian Film Festivals:
– San Diego Christian Film Festival
The annual San Diego Christian Film Festivals screens a number of Christian films every year right in San Diego, not to far from all the debauchery being filmed in Hollywood.
– Gideon Media Arts Conference and Film Festival
The Gideon, which states that it’s their mission to, ” spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through all types of media with an emphasis on radio, theater, church drama, music graphic novels, television and film,” helps to develop the skills of young Christian entertainers. They also hold an annual film festival at their facility in North Carolina.
– Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival
The Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival exists to, “encourage seasoned filmmakers to produce films with family friendly spiritual values; motivate and inspire young filmmakers to produce films with high moral standards; and most importantly, showcase films that honor Christ.” They are based out of Lithonia, Georgia.
– Christian Film Fesitvals of America
On their website, Christian Film Festivals of America states that, “The one and only purpose of the Christian Film Festival is evangelism with the ultimate goal of leading people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.” The festival travels to a variety of different cities across the U.S. to screen films.
Conservative Film Festivals:
– American Film Renaissance
The American Film Renaissance is an organization that “celebrates timeless American values by producing, showcasing and distributing films that promote freedom (including free speech, free enterprise and freedom of worship), rugged individualism and the triumph of the human spirit,” according to their website. In the past they have held a number of film festivals, although the latest festival listed on their website took place in 2008, so it’s somewhat unclear whether they’ll host festivals in the future.
– Liberty Film Festival
www.libertyfilmfestval.com redirects to the website of the Libertas Film Magazine. LFM explains on their website that the festival is on hiatus as of the summer of 2008, but that plans for the festival’s return are in the works. Meanwhile, check out the magazine for news related to the intersection of freedom and popular culture.
