Movieguide® Extends to Russia

Ted BaehrDr. Ted Baehr, chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission® ministry and its family guide to movies, Movieguide®, will be kicking off the Russian expansion of Movieguide® by speaking throughout Moscow during the final week of May.

“The first generation to come of age after the fall of the Berlin Wall heartily embraces media, but with that comes the desperate need for discernment and Media Wisdom.  I’m honored that Movieguide® is playing such a pivotal role at this time in Russia’s history,” said Baehr.

The Director of Movieguide® Russia, Alexey Komov, echoes Dr. Baehr: “A large portion of the Russian population is concerned about the mass media’s assault on the family.” 

One goal of the trip is to plan the Moscow equivalent of the Hollywood Movieguide® Awards, which will honor movies that not only are outstanding in their craft but also redemptive and uplifting in their message.
