The first film produced in North Carolina was made in Winnabow, NC, 1984. While we did not produce Firestarter, and it is not a film full of faith, it has blazed a path for film production in our area that has been seen around the world. You may not know where Winnabow, North Carolina is located, but you have already been entertained with the beauty of our coastal landscape in a multitude of films since 1984. Faith Full Films creates, produces, and distributes quality films that will not only entertain your soul, but will also nourish your faith. Faith Full Films, creating films full of faith and introducing Faith into the Culture
Whether it is an action packed family film or an emotionally charged biblical faith film, our goal is high production value. We have built a group of filmmakers who think and work together toward a similar goal: make quality films. With faith based films, we can bring the message of Jesus Christ to the world. There are many people who would never set foot in a place of worship. But they would easily walk into a movie theater to see a story which speaks to some harsh realities of everyday life – situations to which many can relate.
The movie distribution network was created for organizations to partner with us to distribute quality Christian films. We continue to develop relationships with faith based organizations throughout the United States. We partner with faith based organization to distribute our films through a fundraiser program which benefits the local church, youth group, or missionary. They not only raise money for youth groups, building programs, mission trips, and local outreach projects, they also invest in creating faith based content that will change our culture. It is truly a partnership where both parties move forward with their mission. Contact us today to see how you can reach your financial goals through our movie distribution network. Sign up today!
It is the goal of Faith Full Films, Inc. to introduce faith into the culture we live. Between 1944 and 2011, more than 90% of Americans believed in God. In a recent Gallup Poll it was reported that the number has fallen to just 81% who do so and is the lowest in Gallup's trend.
When asked would you describe yourself as a "born-again" or evangelical Christian? 62% said no.
“Belief is typically the last thing to go,” said Ryan Burge, an assistant professor of political science at Eastern Illinois University. “They stop attending, they stop affiliating and then they stop believing.”
Our goal is to introduce films full of faith into the homes of the American public through local non-profit fundraising events. By using faith based organizations, we hope to inject faith into the homes of its' members and their closest family members. Your mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, or uncle may not go to church with you, but they will most likely help your child go to youth camp or on a mission trip. While they may not listen to your preacher, they may listen to the message of a film that is full of faith.
We had one instance where an actor in "Still Pitching:, which is being released on our platform in the winter of 2022, showed his step-son the movie trailer. Still Pitching is about the redemption of a baseball player that recovered from drug use through faith in Jesus Christ. When he showed his step-son the trailer, he decided to stop using drugs that very moment and his life was spared that evening when his wife went to a party and overdosed on laced heroine. His life was spared by the infusion of faith at that moment, just from a film trailer.
We are currently showing "Pendulum Swings" through our platform. It is a film about a man going to through a divorce who hangs on long enough to see the pendulum swing back in his favor. Countless families have shared similar stories and how faith helped them through their difficult time(s) in life.
For some, film provides an opportunity to escape the world they are living in and find rest. It is our goal that while they may find a temporary escape from the troubles in their life, they also find faith in Jesus Christ that will expand when they leave the screen.
Faith Full Films, Inc. is dedicated to infusing faith into the homes of every home through the use of feature length films.
Gallup's May 2-22 Values and Beliefs poll finds 17% of Americans saying they do not believe in God.
Gallup first asked this question in 1944, repeating it again in 1947 and twice each in the 1950s and 1960s. In those latter four surveys, a consistent 98% said they believed in God. When Gallup asked the question nearly five decades later, in 2011, 92% of Americans said they believed in God.
A subsequent survey in 2013 found belief in God dipping below 90% to 87%, roughly where it stood in three subsequent updates between 2014 and 2017 before this year's drop to 81%.
Gallup has also in recent years asked other questions aimed at measuring belief in God or a higher power. All find the vast majority of Americans saying they believe; when given the option, 5% to 10% have said they were "unsure."

The relationship between movies and culture involves a complicated dynamic; while American movies certainly influence the mass culture that consumes them, they are also an integral part of that culture, a product of it, and therefore a reflection of prevailing concerns, attitudes, and beliefs. In considering the relationship between film and culture, it is important to keep in mind that, while certain ideologies may be prevalent in a given era, not only is American culture as diverse as the populations that form it, but it is also constantly changing from one period to the next. Mainstream films produced in the late 1940s and into the 1950s, for example, reflected the conservatism that dominated the sociopolitical arenas of the time. However, by the 1960s, a reactionary youth culture began to emerge in opposition to the dominant institutions, and these antiestablishment views soon found their way onto the screen—a far cry from the attitudes most commonly represented only a few years earlier.
In one sense, movies could be characterized as America’s storytellers. Not only do Hollywood films reflect certain commonly held attitudes and beliefs about what it means to be American, but they also portray contemporary trends, issues, and events, serving as records of the eras in which they were produced. Consider, for example, films about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: Fahrenheit 9/11, World Trade Center, United 93, and others. These films grew out of a seminal event of the time, one that preoccupied the consciousness of Americans for years after it occurred.
During the 1890s and up until about 1920, American culture experienced a period of rapid industrialization. As people moved from farms to centers of industrial production, urban areas began to hold larger and larger concentrations of the population. At the same time, film and other methods of mass communication (advertising and radio) developed, whose messages concerning tastes, desires, customs, speech, and behavior spread from these population centers to outlying areas across the country. The effect of early mass-communication media was to wear away regional differences and create a more homogenized, standardized culture.
Film played a key role in this development, as viewers began to imitate the speech, dress, and behavior of their common heroes on the silver screen (Mintz, 2007).
Just as movies reflect the anxieties, beliefs, and values of the cultures that produce them, they also help to shape and solidify a culture’s beliefs. Sometimes the influence is trivial, as in the case of fashion trends or figures of speech. After the release of Flashdance in 1983, for instance, torn T-shirts and leg warmers became hallmarks of the fashion of the 1980s (Pemberton-Sikes, 2006). However, sometimes the impact can be profound, leading to social or political reform, or the shaping of ideologies.
As D. W. Griffith recognized nearly a century ago, film has enormous power as a medium to influence public opinion. Ever since Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation sparked strong public reactions in 1915, filmmakers have been producing movies that address social issues, sometimes subtly, and sometimes very directly. More recently, films like Hotel Rwanda (2004), about the 1994 Rwandan genocide, or The Kite Runner (2007), a story that takes place in the midst of a war-torn Afghanistan, have captured audience imaginations by telling stories that raise social awareness about world events. And a number of documentary films directed at social issues have had a strong influence on cultural attitudes and have brought about significant change.
In the 2000s, documentaries, particularly those of an activist nature, were met with greater interest than ever before. Films like Super Size Me (2004), which documents the effects of excessive fast-food consumption and criticizes the fast-food industry for promoting unhealthy eating habits for profit, and Food, Inc. (2009), which examines corporate farming practices and points to the negative impact these practices can have on human health and the environment, have brought about important changes in American food culture (Severson, 2009). Just 6 weeks after the release of Super Size Me, McDonald’s took the supersize option off its menu and since 2004 has introduced a number of healthy food options in its restaurants (Sood, 2004). Other fast-food chains have made similar changes (Sood, 2004).
Other documentaries intended to influence cultural attitudes and inspire change include those made by director Michael Moore. Moore’s films present a liberal stance on social and political issues such as health care, globalization, and gun control. His 2002 film Bowling for Columbine, for example, addressed the Columbine High School shootings of 1999, presenting a critical examination of American gun culture. While some critics have accused Moore of producing propagandistic material under the label of documentary because of his films’ strong biases, his films have been popular with audiences, with four of his documentaries ranking among the highest grossing documentaries of all time. Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), which criticized the second Bush administration and its involvement in the Iraq War, earned $119 million at the box office, making it the most successful documentary of all time (Dirks, 2006).
