The fifth annual festival in Tennessee wrapped on Saturday and honored Christian films in 10 categories. Providing an excellent opportunity to showcase the work of Christian filmmakers, the festival encourages networking with others in the industry. More than 80 films were screened over three days with the aim of communicating truth through a solid biblical worldview.
A division of the American Family Association (AFA), American Family Studios explores the truth and authority of the Bible in the powerful 90-minute documentary, “The God Who Speaks.” Available now on DVD and digital rental, the movie features some of the world’s most respected biblical scholars who shed light on the authority of the Bible’s truths.
“All of us at American Family Studios are honored by the Best Documentary accolade at this past weekend’s Christian Worldview Film Festival,” said M.D. Perkins, director of “The God Who Speaks.” “For everyone who worked on the film, it was labor of love—our love for the truth of the Bible, for the historical significance of how the Bible has reached every believer today, and most importantly, our love of God and His Son, Jesus.”
Since its Feb. 1 debut, the film has enabled thousands of Christians to better defend their faith, talk to skeptics about the truth of the Bible and rest assured in the authority of God’s Word. “The God Who Speaks” aims to clear up misconceptions about the Bible through major players in apologetics, including the late R.C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries, Alistair Begg of Parkside Church, Norman Geisler of Veritas International University and co-founder of Southern Evangelical Seminary, Josh McDowell of Josh McDowell Ministries, R. Albert Mohler of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Alex McFarland of Alex McFarland Ministries and Frank Turek of Cross Examined Ministries, along with many others.
The Christian Worldview Film Festival featured a wide variety of genres and categories including narrative feature films, documentaries, short films, young filmmakers, promotional media, missions awareness and sanctity of life films, all produced with a distinct Christian worldview and that are appropriate for all ages.
“The God Who Speaks” is also produced by Jeff Chamblee, director of American Family Studios.
The Christian Worldview Film Festival began in 2014 by the non-profit ministry Media Talk 101 to encourage Christian filmmakers in their biblical worldview and the craft of film making. The festival had 700 registered attendees in the augural year, and more than 1,000 in subsequent years. The 2019 festival is set for March 11-16 in Franklin, Tennessee.
American Family Studios was launched in 2011 as a way to advance the Christian worldview into an increasingly media rich culture by using animation, film, video, documentary and audio to encourage, uplift and inspire audiences around the world. The state-of-the-art digital/analog studio is located in Tupelo, Mississippi.
