Kingdomwood International Film Festival (KIFF) is a 501c(3) organization that was founded in 2008 originally as Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival by Audrey Thomas and Joe Williams. Our annual film festival provides a forum for independent filmmakers to screen films that promote and inspire Christian teaching and values. KIFF screens full features, shorts, and documentaries, and offers workshops and symposiums that offer insight and analysis of industry trends in faith-based filmmaking and production.
KIFF creates an environment of trust and receptiveness for families and individuals searching for films that speak to their inner spiritual thoughts, while providing a platform for filmmakers wishing to express their spiritual vision on film.
KIFF showcases faith-based films, filmmakers, and the making of films that promote spiritual growth and mentorship. KIFF is an umbrella organization established to manage and promote programs and services that elevate and positions Kingdom business. This includes the Kingdomwood Film Festivals, Kingdomwood Film Institute and Kingdomwood’s Kingdom Rating System (K-Rated).
Kingdomwood Film Institute is an educational arm that provides courses and activities throughout the year that includes workshops, seminars, networking events, private screenings, and independent filmmakers business services such as distribution, and much more.
The K-Rating System / Kingdom Rated Films (in development) provides guidelines that determines which audience a film is appropriate, similar to the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America).
KIFF stands at the forefront of moving this industry along and promoting new and emerging filmmakers.
We welcome the opportunity to share the experience with all kingdom attendees as we REACH, TEACH and INSPIRE the next generation of filmmakers.
