    I appreciate the increased quality of Christian films that I have viewed over the last few years. Then there are those that not only exemplify quality but grab the heart. One of those that I am referring to is Miracles from Heaven. Excellent movie.
    For several years I’ve been nudged to have my story put into a movie. Although humbled and hesitant, I continue to hear the nudge and am now emotionally ready. My booked, His Ways are Higher, One Woman’s Journey of Self-Forgiveness Against Unbeatable Odds is my 45-year of healing following the accidental death of my 2 year old brother. I was the one driving the tractor. It could be summed up in … A 14 year old girl … a tractor accident … extraordinary answers. It was published in February, 2016 and became an Amazon #1 Bestseller in 12 hours. Since the film making process is fairly new to me, I wasn’t sure where to start. I am happy to send you a copy of my book for your consideration. Thank you again for what you do.

    I am working with some partners to launch a commercial Satellite Christian Television Station, supported by advertising. We are looking for good quality Christian content. How much does it cost to rent or buy Christian movies, series, documentaries, etc, for public broadcast on free-to-air Satellite TV?

  6. Desiree says

    CFDb cannot directly answer this. We only provide the “directory” of films & shows. Each one has outside links of where they can be purchased and or rented. For public broadcasts you will need to contact the film company of each one you are wanting to show. You can find more information on this here.

    Hi – Late 2016, there was a trailer for a war movie with a christian theme. The story was “true” in to terms of a soldier who refused to carry a weapon in ww2, save a significant amount of injured soldiers and received the congressional medal of honour. Any idea of the title?

    Hi Leon,

    I think you are referring to the recent Mel Gibson Film Hacksaw Ridge.
    The film is currently available on pre-order. The DVD is expected to be released February 1!

    I wanted to respond to Linda’s question about having her book made into a movie. I’m currently working on short film with an indie production company. I am the screenwriter.

    My suggestion is find an agent that works with screenplays.

    But before that Linda should develop her package. She’ll need it to pitch to agent and or production companies.

    She’ll need a synopsis (250 to 500 words) Keeping it closer to 250 is better.
    Logline. It’s the film in a nutshell. One sentence, two tops. It’s your elevator pitch. This is your hook. Make it snappy. Many agents and production companies read the logline and stop and don’t buy. Make it count.
    Project background. Why the story developed. Try to keep to 250 to 300 words. Key points. Don’t ramble.
    Treatment (3 pages don’t go over 4) Scene by Scene of the film. (Not everything you write in the book will make it to film, be selective. You have about 120 pages of script to tell the story.) Let the production company ask for more if they need more.

    If you decide to write the screenplay yourself, you’ll need to follow industry guidelines to a “T “, formatting everything. If you’re serious about the screenplay, I’d invest in Final Draft it’s a screen writing program. And take some classes on writing a screenplay. Don’t try to write your script in Word, you’ll look like an amateur the formatting is super hard to get right in Word.

    Screenwriting is NOT the same as Non fiction writing or novel writing. If this isn’t you’re skill set, you might want to leave it to a professional screenwriter and pitch only to agents with synopsis, & logline and project background.

    Your agent may not may not ask for you to have the following but it can’t hurt.

    Target Audience (250 words)
    Comparables (At least three films that are similar but not exact to yours.)

    Each agent and or production company Treatment Packages requirements might very slightly. Some of the info the producers might do themselves, if you working with a smaller production company you might have to write it up yourself. The Treatment Package is what the Production Company uses to pitch the movie to investors. I’d research agents see what they require to submit and follow their guidelines. It’s a very, very, long road. Good luck! 🙂
