Now that Kingdomwood regular film submission process is complete, Kingdomwood is offering yet another opportunity, to have your film submitted in our upcoming Festival.

We are encouraging you to seek sponsors for your project, and have the sponsors submit your project to Kingdomwood. Essentially your project will be submitted on behalf of your sponsor. A company, individual or group can be a sponsor, and sponsoring your film will allow them to support a family-friendly project and have their brand, product or service promoted throughout the Kingdomwood network.

As a filmmaker, you will have the opportunity to showcase your accepted film in our festival, and it must be a theater-ready movie for the Atlanta Phipps-Plaza Theater located in Atlanta’s Buckhead area.

Festival Perks and complimentary access to our 10th Anniversary will be dependent upon the level of sponsorship chosen by your sponsor. We will make every effort to accommodate your sponsor and position their brand, product or service in a manner that showcases their support of your project and the festival. This is an exciting “first” for Kingdomwood, and it is our hope that you can find sponsors who are willing to support your efforts to position your project at the 10th anniversary celebration, October 4-7, 2018.

We look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at:

All Nominees will be announced at this year's Kingdomwood gala and the winners will be awarded at the “Filmmakers and Screenplay Writers Award Show”.

Crowns In Heaven --- > Crowns at Kingdomwood

The Bible specifically talks about 5 different crowns that will be given to some of God’s people when they enter into heaven. If you look very closely at what these crowns are going to be for, they will be for work that is done for God that is beyond the normal scope of what the average person may attempt to do.

This is for work that goes far, above, and beyond what the average person may actually strive for. Just like trophies, rings, and plaques are given to sports heroes or winning teams in sports, God apparently is going to be doing the same thing in heaven.
He will be giving out certain types of crowns for the people who were willing to go that extra mile, who were willing to give that extra special effort in whatever God had called them to do. These crowns will be a special reward that will be rewarding excellence and maximum effort.

    The Kingdomwood experience was awesome!! The presence of the Lord was evident and the organizers were very hospitable and accessible. The film makers and presenters were also encouraging and supportive!!! Besides the Award Ceremony, the Act out Loud Segment was one of my favorite sessions. It allowed me to tap into my first love...Acting!!! I am also humbled and grateful that STRANGE FRUIT was selected for 3rd place in the Short Film category.

    This was one of my first overseas film festivals and it was fantastic. I received a first class welcome that continued throughout the whole event. I would like to thank all of the Kingdomwood team for a uplifting, dynamic and informative film festival. I am also truly grateful that my film Epiphany picked-up the best short film. Many thanks! Keep up the good work. See you next year!

  • I truly enjoyed the Film Festival and meeting fresh and new people who were in the field of creating Christian Films. It was awesome to see my film on the Big Screen for the first time. I will attend again. Thanks!

    Kingdomwood is an amazing festival. The venue was beautiful and ultra accommodating. I love that I was able to hold a Q&A after my little film. I met so many amazing people.
