Films of Zion

Brace Yourself! Film has produced seven award-winning short films. These films have won national and/or international film festivals, 2 have been integrated into university and college courses. They have been requested to play in Ghana, Africa, Dresden, Germany and San Palo, Florianopolis and Santa Catarina, Brazil. And featured in national and worldwide television broadcasts.

We are committed to continuing our Media Arts platform in the ‘short film’ genre and also expanding further into the ‘feature films’ arena. This move will create a greater base for dissemination of the awareness aspects of our mission. Also, it will greatly increase the profitability of our projects, which, will then provide the foundational resources for developing our centers to help those who need guidance and healing through traumatic life situations.
