NPR posted a nice article about the recent San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, in which they contrasted it’s tone and atmosphere with that of the recent Oscars. It was a good and fair article with some great reporting about the ongoing development of the Christian Movie Industry. It had some great quotes from a good sampling of Christian Movie makers. Here are a couple quotes…

Instead of just complaining about sex and violence, Doug Phillips (founder of the Vision Forum) says, Christians must make films that reflect their own values. He says he started the film festival five years ago when he realized that Christians were losing the hearts and minds of the young…

…”I think we’re going to see significant production houses that will be funding $200 million films done by Christians… We’re going to have our own filmmakers that can tell great stories, produce tremendous films, but they’re going to be doing it with a Christian world view”

Obviously the article hit a nerve with  NPR listener-ship.  The article was posted on Feb 20th and has 178 comments posted in the last 3 days (not that I have time to read more than 20 of them.)   Check out the article here and let us know what you think.
