Media OP:New Film Distribution Model Takes Family Friendly Films to The Church, Not The Theater.


(Los Angeles)July 10, 2007 -- Christian Cinema Network (CCN) the brainstorm of Founder/President Marianne P. Wilson, is redefining the way Christians go to the movies . . . and she says “it will work!”

CCN’s first family friendly fare “Believe In Me" will not be shown in your local theater, instead this 1960s true story of a girls’ high school basketball team in Oklahoma and the inspirational coach who transforms them from last place into state champions, will be shown in churches.

“Believe In Me" is a highly entertaining motion picture that offers wonderful life lessons,” says Wilson. “CCN’s goal is to help promote family friendly, inspiring and meaningful films while giving churches and ministries quality entertainment that can be used as fundraising opportunities, teaching tools and community building events.

“Film-gems such as ”Believe In Me“ are often overlooked by traditional means of distribution,” says Wilson" However, Churchgoers can now enjoy great family and faith friendly films via CCN’s distribution system that empowers like-minded people to share in faith, film and family values right at their own church.”

“Believe In Me,” is an underdog story of triumph, friendship and love. It is a film that proves that the impossible can be achieved if you believe, and is as relevant today as it was forty years ago when the true story took place. Churches can host a movie through the CCN, which requires a minimal financial commitment, and CCN will split the ticket price of $10 with the church organization.
