Theme Picked for 23rd Annual Faith and Family Friendly Awards Gala

Ted Baehr Movieguide“Faith & Values Are for Reel” has been announced as the theme for next year’s 23rd Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry.

“Faith-based movies are having one of their best years ever,” noted Dr. Ted Baehr, Founder of Movieguide® and the Christian Film & Television Commission®. “And, movies about heroic superheroes and movies for families remain the most popular movies both here and overseas.”

Each year, not far removed from Oscar night, Movieguide® hosts its annual Awards Gala, where it celebrates and honors outstanding filmmakers and entertainment executives who develop positive, ethical, and morally-balanced films and television productions.

Some of the top honors given away each year include the “Best of the Year” awards for family and mature movies; the Grace Award for Inspiring Acting; The Faith & Freedom Awards; the $50,000 Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays from Beginning and First-Time Screenwriters and the $50,000 Chronos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays from Established Filmmakers (both supported by grants from the John Templeton Foundation); and the celebrated $100,000 Epiphany Prizes for Inspiring Movies & for TV.

Also, Crystal Teddy Bears are given to the best family movies and the best movies for mature audiences of the year, with one winner declared as the top in each field. In addition, special awards are given to the winners of the two Faith & Freedom Awards for Promoting Positive American Values in Movies & TV.

Each year at the gala, Dr. Baehr also presents highlights from Movieguide®’s Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry, which examines how well family movies and movies with Christian, moral, and spiritually uplifting content did at the box office and on home video compared to other kinds of movies.

The next gala will be held Friday, February 6, 2015, at the Universal Hilton Hotel near the heart of Hollywood. The Movieguide® Awards are by invitation only and are attended by honorees and industry professionals.
