There were more than 1,200 attendees at the International Christian Film Festival (ICFF) held April 23-25 at the Crowne Plaza Orlando-Downtown.
During the festival, 23 feature films, 21 short films, 17 documentaries and eight music videos were screened. The range of categories were diverse – family, historical, suspense, thriller, adventure, music, documentary, dramatic, Christian and evangelical.
Well-known actors in attendance included Stephen Baldwin, and Ernie Hudson showcasing their new movies. They were joined by actors, writers and film professionals from all over the country and world, including Canada and Hong Kong.
“Everyone is considered a winner because the ICFF is a platform to recognize artists’ creative achievements. There were periods of joy-crying at the award ceremonies, and throughout the weekend. Each film is the producers’ masterpiece of beautiful designs, and unique storylines,” said Marty Jean-Louis, organizer of the festival.
Said producer Cliff McDowell, “The ICFF was an absolute pleasure to attend. This was a well-organized festival. The closing award ceremony felt like you attended the Christian Oscars.’’
McDowell’s “Masked Saint’’ was named best picture.
