Mission

We believe in the power of STORYTELLING to inspire HOPE, transform thought, generate debate and to cause ACTION. This is accomplished via educational, literary, religious and charitable endeavors primarily through film production and distribution. We achieve our mission by the strategic use of films and other innovative media that will generate debate, transform thought and promote action. We also believe that education is essential for change and therefore, the films we produce should fill a void with life-changing stories.

Educational Films

We make films that educate, inform and inspire.
Our passion is Christian history. So often we discover that there is much more to stories than we have been told. A good example of this is the story of Saint Nicholas. There have been films made about how we got Santa Claus, but no film ever told the full story about his faith and passion for justice. That's why we decided to make Saint Nicholas: The Real Story in 2015.
This film is now available on Amazon and it has been broadcast on TV in several countries. A Russian language version was broadcast last Christmas in many countries to a potential audience of 165 million people.

The focus of our organization is to produce films about social concerns and trends. Our films draw awareness to a specific cause or problem and educate communities about how they can affect them. We are currently producing a slate of films on a variety of causes including; human trafficking and sexual identity.

A secondary benefit of these "cause film" projects is to engage with organizations that are providing solutions to these problems. We aid advocacy organizations by creating a stronger voice for their cause and by providing creative tools to generate support for their missions. The exposure for each project has the potential for local, national and even international impact. Through collaboration with grassroots organizations, film screenings are promoted in cinemas, schools, universities, churches, and on the Internet. These events in turn are used as fundraising mechanisms to benefit the participating organizations.

We believe that the films we produce should fill a void and provide fresh insight into stories that have never been fully told.
