To Our Fellow Christian Film Lovers!June is the time for Father’s Day.  Don’t forget to make the day special for your father. 

If you are a father, this is a good time to renew your commitment to your family.


Sincerely, Annelie Rudlaff, llc



Ephesians 6:4 – And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.



My #1 Father’s Day film has to be:



CourageousCourageousIf you haven’t seen this yet, you HAVE to see this one! This is one that will make you laugh and cry.  This is a film that will seriously impact your life, even if you aren’t a father!  There are moments in this film where the entire theater was laughing so hard.  It’s not too often that happens!


There are also some amazing tools that go along with the movie.

Hidden Secrets Hidden Secrets – I cannot say enough about this amazing Christian Film.  This is another one that will make you laugh and make you cry and will drive you a little crazy at one of the characters.


There are real life issues in this film, very realistic and what a fabulous ending.  This movie causes you to take a look at your own Christian walk.


Fantastic cast of characters as well!

Annelie’s Film World Blog



This month CFDb partnered with!  They have provided us with our own page on their online store!


Now you can use this banner below which is located here and on our pages on the database to order your Christian films and/or your Christian books, or supplies.


We are extremely excited about this partnership!


You will notice some changes on our movie pages – the banners will now all link to CBD once we’ve made all the necessary changes unless CBD does not carry the item, and then we will link to other places such as, Christian, and more…


We will still have our “Buy Film” link below the YouTube Trailer, as well as places to connect for VOD and get Film Reviews.  We may change the name of the button in the future but for right now it will remain the same.


Carlos Espinosa

Founder/CEO at Holy Wood Acting Studio



= > What led to you opening Holy Wood Acting Studio?


My son Max was the personal manager of a converted to Christ actor and they both traveled to talk and evangelize. They saw that there is no studio in the world that can form future actors with the strength and morals to not only avoid the dangers of fame and money but to use them for the Glory of God which is the well-being of His Children. I was in Cancun were I’ve been working as a real estate developer and they asked me to join them to put together this studio where the center in Jesus.


= > Can you describe why Holy Wood Acting Studio is different from other acting studios?


Any other studio may teach the students how to be a good actor and many of them with the best classes you can possibly find just as we do, but in our case we are really concerned in the morals as the fountain of joy and enhancer of the talent and its beauty in the actor.

Also we build their self-esteem with Christian values and principles to excel in their ability and to become the great light for thousands or maybe millions who will be led by him.


= > How long has Holy Wood Acting Studio been opened for business?


The studio opened its doors on January 1st, 2011.

We have completed one summer course last June-September and we’ll be having a second one the first week of June, 2012.


= > Where is Holy Hood Acting Studio located?


In Culver City, California, where all the main film studios started a few decades ago. We’re 10 minutes away from Sony Pictures Main Studios.


= > In case someone wants to ask further questions or to apply, what is the best way to contact you?


The best way to contact us is through our contact page on the website: or email directly to


= > Do you have any recommendations for an actor/actress that desires to work in the Christian Film Industry?


Yes. I would say prayer is the answer, with prayer you get faith, courage, perseverance, humility and joy right from Christ Jesus. Once you are on His Joy that comes forth from being in His Majestic, all-mighty powerful Presence you’ll become His ligth in the media for the world… prepare, prepare because it is a battle and the battle starts with one self if you want to serve Jesus, many times painful but always, always, always is the most joyful adventure! “Act… and God will act!”
