The Fatherhood CoMission and the Christian Worldview Film Festival have partnered to hold the second annual HONOR YOUR FATHER short film contest. The two groups urge filmmakers to use inspiration, humor, or drama in short film to promote a Biblical perspective of fatherhood, sharable on social media and appropriate to play in churches leading up to Father’s Day.
Filmmakers of all ages and backgrounds are invited to create a short film or submit an existing short film that meets the contest criteria to cwvff.com/fatherhood.
The Fatherhood CoMission has teamed up with The Christian Worldview Film Festival (CWVFF) to host this short film competition. Stephen Kendrick, Fatherhood CoMission Board Member/Film Producer says,
“Imagine the national and global impact if every fathering/family organization, church, pastor were preaching the same message this Father’s Day—‘Honor Your Father’—a simple, scriptural and relevant way to help Dads and those they impact.”
Submissions must be received by Monday, January 30, 2017. Finalists will be showcased at the 2017 Christian Worldview Film Festival in San Antonio, March 16-18, 2017 and the winners revealed at the awards ceremony on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Finalists and winners will also be showcased in the 2017 Fatherhood CoMission’s HONOR YOUR FATHER campaign.
The goal of this competition is to create a compelling short film that champions fatherhood. For years TV, movies, and other media have portrayed fathers as feckless targets of ridicule, devaluing the role fathers play, stripping them of honor. We will recognize and reward talented filmmakers whose work can reverse that trend.
