In the years since we released our first movie, we’ve seen dramatic shifts in the industry. DVDs are slowly fading away as consumers steer instead towards streaming services. Besides Netflix, which is geared towards a mass market audience, many smaller companies are focused on faith-based and family entertainment. Crossflix is one of the newer ones to enter the market.

I’m always on the lookout for fresh movies, so I was excited by the opportunity to enjoy a free trial subscription to Crossflix. The first thing I noticed about the site was the selection of films. While many were familiar titles, I was surprised by the number of movies I didn’t recognize and was pleased to see a number of films that we’ve followed on the festival route, some of which, to my knowledge, aren’t available elsewhere.

The Crossflix lineup includes a mix of indie movies, classic shows, animated children’s programs, and documentaries. They’re all faith-based and/or family approved, with nothing to offend conservative viewers. In addition to the movies, they have Bible teaching series and sermons.

My only complaint with the service is their lack of an easy way to search for specific films. The site is organized by genre and you have to go scroll through each genre to find films. But, on the upside, by searching that way, I discovered a few films I would have never found otherwise.

If you’re looking for new options for faith-based entertainment, I’d encourage you to check out Crossflix. It’s especially ideal for homeschool families, providing entertainment for all ages as well as educational programming. You can get a feel for the plan with their free 14 day trial, or you can register to win a FREE FULL YEAR SUBSCRIPTION. Check it out! http://www.blessedfreebies.com/crossflix.html

I'm a female filmmaker, blogger, and speaker with over a decade of industry experience. I'm passionate about visual storytelling. I know firsthand that you don't have to spend a fortune to make a good movie, and you can tell a powerful story without ever saying a word. My desire with Faith Flix is to educate, inspire, and encourage my fellow filmmakers. I know that Christian filmmakers can make better movies, but it takes education and hard work. I'll help with the education and leave you to do the hard work.
