The Faith & Values Awards gala is in Los Angeles today. I’m sure some great family-friendly movies and TV shows are among the nominees (a full list seems a bit elusive). Movieguide hosts the annual event which also rewards the best films for mature audiences and awards the $100,000 Epiphany Prizes and the $50,000 Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays.
I thought this might serve as a good time to remind you of some web resources for finding family-friendly films:
- Decent Films — Film critic Steven D. Greydanus brings you regular reviews of theatrical and DVD releases.
- Aquinas and More Catholic Goods — Offers nearly 300 titles, including cartoons, to help Catholics grow individually or together in their faith.
- Pius Media — The friend who told me about this site described it as “Netflix for Catholics.” The site offers a clear explanation of how it works. Titles are easy to sort by categories such as apologetics, children, documentary, family movie night, Lent/Easter, music concerts and more. There’s even a “Saint’s Feast Days” section so you can be sure to brush up on your saintly knowledge at an appropriate time of year.
