Depth of faith

"Depth of faith" Continued...

ReMoved received nominations in 13 categories, and won four of them on Saturday. As two other films also won many categories, Christina prepared for disappointment about the big prize. So when the announcer for Best Film opened the envelope and read “ReMoved,” she was surprised: “In my head I said ‘WHATTT?’... That was very exciting.”

Now the Matanicks are thinking about new ideas for their feature-length film. They also plan on submitting ReMoved to a few other secular film festivals. The film isn’t overtly Christian, but Christina says the gospel infuses it: “It doesn’t need to be preachy, this is what God did for us and this is what we should do as Christ followers.”

We plan to continue following the Matanicks as they work on their feature-length film with EchoLight Studios. Tune in to WORLDmag.com for monthly updates on the process of putting together a new film.
