Audience Vote: King’s Faith

posted by Nell Minow

Faith Street Film Partners, a Rochester, NY-based collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters – totaling more than 1,000 people – decided to fund, film, and release their new movie by listening to the audience.

“Audiences are changing, and so should storytelling,” director Nicholas DiBella said. “King’s Faith” is a very personal, true-to-life story that will resonate with the realities of families and teens – this is a bottom-up experience, very grassroots and community-driven which invites the audience to be actively involved every step of the way. That is the way real transformation happens.”  Waking Giants Entertainment Group is inviting audiences and groups to decide where the movie opens. Audiences can demand that “King’s Faith” come to their local theater at www.kingsfaith.com

Based upon early demands, the movie will open in Charlotte, NC, Dallas, TX, Phoenix, AZ, Colorado Springs, CO, Rochester, NY, Buffalo, NY, and Huntsville, AL. The producers and distributor are planning interactive audience tools including group study materials, outreach partnerships, and a specialty youth campaign to create awareness and heighten audience attendance.

“King’s Faith” tells the story of Brendan King (Crawford Wilson) who attempts to leave his turbulent gang life behind him, but his past continues to threaten his new-found faith, family, and future. The film prompts audiences to consider questions that many struggle within our world today: Where do I fit in? How can I stand firm in my faith when life’s challenges put me to the test? Can someone find true forgiveness from their wrong choices?

“King’s Faith” reminds us that our past doesn’t define us,” DiBella said. “No matter where you’ve been, or how lost you feel, you should never give up hope or faith.”  It stars Emmy Award winning actress Lynn Whitfield (Eve’s Bayou, The Women of Brewster Place), Crawford Wilson (Judging Amy, Zoey 101), Kayla Compton (Entourage), and James McDaniel (Malcolm X, NYPD Blue).
