Virginia Christian Film Festival: The Musical, Xiaozhen’s Story, Raked in Nine Awards


        The musical, Xiaozhen’s Story, raked in nine awards, including those for best director, best feature film, best musical score, and so on, at the Christian Film Festival in Virginia, United States. Since its release in 2015, this musical, with the unfolding of life’s transformation as its theme, has received multiple awards one after another in countries such as Russia, India, America, and so on. This is the 7th time since its first screening that this movie has won film festival awards. This musical centers on the metamorphosis of the life of the Christian Xiaozhen. A true story, it tells of how people are enticed by money and fame into forfeiting their humanity, growing distant from God, losing their direction and goals in life, and heading toward the terror and helplessness of falling from grace. Through twists and turns, the fates of the characters are very moving and invocative, and by way of one climax after another, the plot triggers the audience into wondering such things as: Just what is happiness? What is the value and meaning of life? Who can save people from their lives of suffering, and bring them happiness and light? The lyrics used in the screenplay come from utterances spoken to all humanity by the Creator. They express God’s concern, hopes, and care for humans, pointing out the way to all those who are profoundly suffering and have been led astray, and bringing them the gospel and hope! “Mr. Richard, the film festival organizer said, “I thought Xiaozhen’s Story was a great message not only for Christians but it could be for everybody. Everybody eventually, after they chase the things of the world, will realize that those things don’t fill their heart, and what really fills their heart is Jesus. And so I thought that it was a great story, and lots of Christians should watch it. Because they will all relate to Xiaozhen and her journey. It was definitely an award-winning film and that’s why it was recognized with so many awards.”

Christian Family Film Festival: Chronicles of Religious Persecution in China – Silver Medal Winner

Christian Family Film Festival: Chronicles of Religious Persecution in China – Silver Medal Winner


  On October 1, 2017, the three-day Christian Family Film Festival in Ellington, New York came to a close. The full human rights documentary produced by The Church of Almighty God, Chronicles of Religious Persecution in China, stood out from the crowd among a number of the films shown, winning the silver medal. This documentary, a true account of the Chinese Communist government’s wanton violations of human rights and brutal murders of Christians, provides international society with a deeper understanding of the inside story of the Chinese government’s oppression of religious faith, offering detailed and powerful evidence. The film has received widespread attention and praise since its release.

  As an important platform for the promotion of mutual understanding and exchanges between Christian filmmakers, the Christian Family Film Festival attracts submissions of hundreds of film and television works. In this year’s film festival, 28 excellent submissions were selected, with films from many countries including England, the US, France, Korea, and Bulgaria. On par with many professionally produced full films, Chronicles of Religious Persecution in China overcame the festival judges with its profound significance. When the representative from The Church of Almighty God accepted the silver medal awarded by the festival organizers, the following testimonial was her acceptance speech.

  By recreating the actual experiences of Christians who have been brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist government, even to the death, as well as its cruel oppression of Christian families and their tragedies of deaths and broken homes, Chronicles of Religious Persecution in China deeply exposes the true plight of power trumping law in China ruled by the Chinese Communist Party. The policy of freedom of religion is nothing but a lie, a story. The Chinese Communist government wantonly tramples on the law and has utter disregard for human life. It brutally persecutes Christians and has committed countless evil deeds, bringing grave disaster to Chinese Christians. The contents of the film are true, moving, and shocking. Not only has it won the approval of the festival organizers, but it has also been praised by many other representatives of the film festival participants.
