Best of Festival Winner 2024
Live-Screening June 2024


Submissions only through


From the creators of the "Depth of Field International Film Festival," "Docs Without Borders Film Festival," " Women's International Film Festival," " Screenplay Competition," and "LGBTQ-Unbordered International Film Festival," among many other highly successful festivals, all under the umbrella of the " Entertainment Network," we bring you the "Religion Faith International Film Festival."

Faith- and family-based movies are becoming more popular in the movie business. Many directors are making movies with religious and family-related themes and messages. So, we made a religious film festival open to all religions to show and award these movies. RFIFF provides opportunities for filmmakers to share their works with audiences who appreciate faith-family-driven content

In today's world, where the idea of family is growing, it is important to have events that cater to a diverse audience. One way to do this is through RFIFF. We live screen our Best of Festival winners and online screen Best of Show, Outstanding Excellence, and Excellence winners on our network, (Optional)

We accept films worldwide that show respect for different cultures, traditions, and values while bringing people together.

Besides entertaining audiences, RFIFF provides an opportunity for education.

Faith and family-based films have increased recently, with more filmmakers exploring religious/family themes and messages through movies. Several things have led to this trend, such as a rise in the number of people who want to watch inspirational movies, improvements in technology that make it easier and cheaper to produce high-quality movies, and a greater acceptance of faith-based content in mainstream media.

Opportunities for sub-category awards include cinematography, score, original concept, direction, SFX, acting, writing, editing, and many more!

To ensure that each screenplay is read, studied, and rated individually, WRPNSC has instituted a system where entries do not compete against each other but are recognized for their merits.
They compete against themselves: each entry is judged on individual merits and scored on an inherent value system.

The judge's focus is on your screenplay when it is your turn to be evaluated, not on all the other scripts that are on cue; this ensures that they will not have comparisons going on in their minds when they should focus entirely on YOU.
