English speaking films at this time. Thank you.
The Culture of Life Film Festival is a social event to raise awareness about the beauty of life, life issues that cause struggle, and the solutions relatively available to us all. We want to bless viewers with films, documentaries, series, animations, and scripts that say "you are loved". The live festival happens once a year (plans are to have it traveling every month to different towns). There is also a 24/7 356 days a year version online for those that cannot make it to the physical events. The winners of the event get a none exclusive distribution deal with Culture Of Life TV, Amazon, and others. The feature film showcase version of the film festival helps to raise money for women and children in need. We even have testimonials at the live event to share how we are helping those in need through YOUR films.
It's an amazing social experiment that we are trying to forge in order to find hurt and heal it through the art we all create.
When you submit your film(s), you are simply agreeing that we can share your film at the live festival, stream it (people can watch for 30 days for free - or subscribe) on our online version, and if you win we can distribute it as apart of a feature film showcase with the other winners on Amazon and other platforms.
HOW AWESOME IS THAT???
Do you want to learn more about the different events? Here you go...
THE 24/7/365 ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL
Don't wait 11 months to see your film in a film festival. We created the online version to be a year around film festival so the Artists can go directly to our viewers without waiting! We want to thank Filmmakers by not having them wait for the live event and giving them a FREE option for a film festival to showcase their videos. The online film festival will have more films on it than Winners, all the ones on the online version will show at the live event, and viewers online can vote for the best films to go to the distribution deal.
THE TV NETWORK
The online film festival at www.CultureOfLifeTV.com doubles as an online TV Network. We interview filmmakers, social workers, faith leaders, and cultural healers on an ongoing series for Amazon. We also showcase the films. The tv network will be getting apps for the four major platforms in the near future, giving you a larger FREE reach into the homes of the world.
THE LIVE EVENT
Our live event happens in February ever year. Our plans are to make it a traveling event. This gives us a chance to meet YOU, the Filmmaker, the Fans, and those that are moved by the films. This gives us a chance to see how your films play to the audiences and give you a paper that says if you won an award or if you are getting distribution. It's a fun live event for all of us to say hi and pray together. It a great time to say thank you to the Filmmakers for enriching our culture with quality family-friendly stories we can all experience together.
THE FEATURE FILM WINNERS
Winners will get a nonexclusive deal to have their film in our series on Amazon!!! Get your name on IMDB for the series, on the credits of the film, and so much more! This is all for free and it is worth over $4,000 for distribution.
How it works:
1) Submit your film to Film Freeway
2) We review films to make sure they are family friendly, faith based, and/or good quality
(Films have to do with human life, experience, hope, healing, or something positive or engaging that makes us think about bettering ourselves.)
3) The best films get onto the online festival and our live event
4) People vote at the live event for who wins the distribution deal
5) Your donated film will go on to help fundraise for families that have lost new born babies, while get your film out to the masses. It's a win win scenario.
This festival is a faith based festival, but even films that are not faith-based in nature and deliver solid family friend messages about hope, love, mercy, and life are welcomed with open arms. Submit your film(s). You, as as filmmaker, are a blessing to us and we want to champion films that are great message for humanity.
We are never political about our voting. It is all about the rules above. That is it. Make films that better life. Have fun. We will see you on the festival and even help you make your films better so they can be on the festival in the future.

Our rules and terms are simple. When you submit your film you are doing it in goodwill that we will:
1) watch the film and review it to see if it is a good fit for our network, festival, and possible distribution
2) you agree to donate your film to the film festival for sales of tickets
3) you agree to donate your film for possible distribution to major networks. When you submit your film you are giving us a none exclusive right to distribute, share, broadcast, stream, and publically show your films.
You agree to all of this and not to sue us for doing so, because you agreed to this before you upload your film. Any film upload agrees to all of this. We can pull any film at anytime, but to renig on an agreement should be done professionally.
We use these films to raise funds and awareness for families that lose new born babies due to illnesses. This is a non-profit, a ministry, and a service to others. We agree to market your films in a none political way, in the best light possible, and to get your film into the homes and infront of as many eyes as possible for this cause.
If you have an issues with the agreement or would like to disconinue your film (for any reason), you can email us at email@example.com. We will miss you, we will be sad to see you go, but we understand and are so thankful for anyone's involvement. Not every festival is the right fit for every filmmaker.
So, in review: When you submit your film(s), you are simply and automatically agreeing that we can share your film at the live festival, stream it (people can watch for 30 days for free - or subscribe) on our online version, and if you win we can distribute it as apart of a feature film showcase with the other winners on Amazon and other platforms. Films raise funds for women and children in need. We donate to nonprofits around the country that help find food, shelter, education, baby supplies, jobs, cars, and more for families to stay together.
