Movies make a profound difference in our lives. They can stir our imaginations and stimulate our minds. They can bring us laughter, tears, joy…or the whole range of emotion. They can arouse our compassion, spur us toward love, inspire our lives, or incite us toward action, and even hatred and violence.
Easter Sunday, April 16, on the REELZChannel, Movieguide®: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment will present a special celebrating the best, most inspiring movies of the last year.
Using clips of the movies themselves and interviews with the top leaders, actors, writers, and directors in Hollywood, the special will reveal why these movies were made and what was it about them that fascinated and inspired millions of people around the world.
“We hope this TV special will enable viewers to develop a strategy for their movie and television viewing that will help them live an inspired, abundant life,” Movieguide® Founder and Publisher Dr. Baehr said.
The special will open with scenes from the Red Carpet at Movieguide®’s 25th Annual Faith & Values Awards in February. At the end, it will reveal the winners of the Epiphany Prizes for the Most Inspired Movie and TV Program of 2016.
The special will air April 16 at 5 pm Eastern Time and 2 pm Pacific Time on the REELZChannel.
