DOVE APPROVES CHRISTMAS RIDE -- FAMILY FARE AGES 12+
I'm happy to announce Christmas Ride, an Oscar hopeful, was awarded the gold Faith and Family Seal of Approval for ages 12 and older from The Dove Foundation Review Board this week.
As you may know, this means the Foundation believes that the content expressed makes for the kind of entertainment family members can enjoy together with confidence. The Dove Family Approved Seal is awarded to movies, DVDs, made for TV movies and specials, books and other entertainment products.
Christmas Ride also received the blue Family Seal for the same age group.
Now celebrating its 20th year as an advocate for family values in entertainment, The Dove Foundation works to encourage filmmakers to make clean movies, and to empower families to make wise choices. As a nonprofit, "keeper of the Seal," free from commercial pressures, The Dove Foundation has built a brand that is recognized by over 50 million Americans.
Here is a link to the Dove Foundation review of Christmas Ride:
The Dove Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and may be found online at http://www.dove.org.
CHRISTMAS RIDE is a moving, dramatic 108 minute feature film:
The story line is “After hearing a frightening supernatural warning, Keri takes an urgent road trip south during the Christmas holidays with her two kids and a mysterious neighbor haunted by ghosts from his past. Keri faces dangerous situations and ultimately learns a heartbreaking truth which tests the limits of forgiveness.”
I produced the film through my company Art Promotions ("Paintings, Prints, Productions") in cooperation with Yarbrough Media Productions in west TN, Christmas Ride had its first theatrical run in DCP 2K format at the Music Hall, one of the Laemmle theaters on Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills, CA in September, 2014. This was a week long qualifying run with four screenings a day at a commercial theater. More about the film at www.artprofilms.com
