My Feature Film Has Been Nominated for a Major Award!

Healing River, a movie I wrote and directed, has been nominated for the ICVM Crown Award for Best Picture! Now in their 46th year, the ICVM presentation (International Christian Visual Media) is the world’s longest-running and most influential awards ceremony for faith-based films.

I was surprised (but delighted) when I heard the news. Healing River previously received over twenty film festival honors, and was the top-rated inspirational film on Amazon Prime in 2020 (and still is). But because of the pandemic the Crown Awards were postponed to this year.

Thanks again to all who’ve watched our film, written reviews, and told others about this heartfelt story of the healing power of forgiveness! Healing River can be watched at multiple sites online, and is also available from most video retailers, including Amazon and Walmart. You can watch it for free on Amazon Prime, if you’re a member (or for a small fee if you’re not).

    Congratulations Mitch. I watched it last night. Great movie & story. Very powerful message of forgiveness and letting God work in and through us to heal relationships between ourselves and God, between family members and even those who have hurt us beyond measure. Forgiveness is healing – a healing river.

    They say God works in mysterious ways. You liked a post on my blog which led me to yours and I was intrigued so I rented Healing River. I then realized that there was nothing mysterious about our encounter, God sent me to your blog. I just finished the movie, congratulations! The movie spoke to me in many many ways. The story touched me deeply. I have written about my husbandโ€™s past and when I watched Alec all I could think was โ€œthat could have been my husband but not for the second chance he was given by God.โ€ Thank you, thank you, I will be recommending the movie to many. God Bless!

      Polly, I’m delighted to hear how well you were able to relate to the film. It was, in fact, inspired by a number of true stories like yours and your husband’s. Thank you for your kind words and plan to recommend it to others. May I encourage you to leave a brief review at Amazon? (The more reviews it gets, the more they recommend it). Also, you can rate it from 1 to 10 stars on IMDb (link below). Note: IMDb only recognizes the rating if you rate a few other movies, as well. And good to meet you, btw! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5848326/
