5 Under-the-Radar, Inspirational Movies Values Audiences will Go Bananas For

An insider’s report from Variety’s PURPOSE Summit

By Matthew Faraci

A few days ago, entertainment professionals from all over the world gathered at Variety’s annual Faith and Family Entertainment event—the PURPOSE Summit—in Beverly Hills. This exclusive, insider meeting serves as the hub for a vibrant and rapidly-growing sector in Hollywood, values-focused movies and programming. For the very first time, PURPOSE featured a fresh FIRST LOOK! exert panel, detailing what’s coming down the pike in the space.

As moderator, I had to sift through dozens of projects to figure out which ones to highlight, given the limited time for the conversation. The good news? There’s never been such an avalanche of great content for the faithful. If you love inspiring, positive, uplifting entertainment for the whole family, this is your year! The bad news? Figuring out how to find time to see everything.

Watch our expert panel discussion in the video below:

Here are 5, under-the-radar projects that got lots of buzz at PURPOSE, and have the potential to be big hits provided they are well-marketed and audiences hear about them.
