MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Heavenly Reel Independent Christian Film Festival was founded in early 2013. The festival was created as a way to showcase independent Christian film-makers and their works, while promoting and upholding Christian values in the community.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Thank you for checking out the 2014 Heavenly Reel Independent Film Festival.
This event will be featuring Christian-themed films and media projects. As we try to spread the word of the Lord, our hopes are high that our community will be welcoming and warmhearted while enjoying works from independent filmmakers of all ages, races, and geographic locales. One thing all of our contestants will possess is a desire to promote Christian values and unity among viewers of all ages. The opportunity for viewers to experience all the best of independent Christian film-making will be made possible in a secure, safe, and affordable manor.
Our staff at HRFF will go out of their way to provide the most enjoyable viewing experience possible. We at HRFF have been in the film festival industry a combined twenty plus years and understand the concerns of our event patrons. If anyone has questions or concerns about the festival, please do not hesitate to contact us. Information on doing so will be contained within the “Contact Us” section of the site.
