Inside Move: God in the aisles

New film fest queues up the Christians

It was probably inevitable, given the growing profile of evangelicals around the country and their open disdain for Hollywood hedonism.

The first Independent Christian Film Festival & Jubilee Awards has been set to run in San Antonio Nov. 11-13.

Event is organized by the Vision Forum, a nonprofit set up in 1998 to produce and promote Christian content. It will feature film shorts produced by presumably Christian filmmakers, including home educators, film students and indie professionals.

Like other fests, this one will also feature cultural events and classes and workshops with directors and filmographers. No names of participants were yet available on the fest’s Web site.

“America is discontent with Hollywood’s negative monopoly stranglehold on film and culture,” says Vision Forum prexy Doug Phillips. “The intense hatred by Hollywood elites for Christianity and the value system which it embodies has created a rift in American culture, and profoundly damaged the American family. We intend to respond, not by cursing the darkness, but by lighting a candle.”

Grand prize, the Jubilee Award, will reward the fest’s best pic with $10,000.
