Hollywood sign on hillsideSome of the top people in Hollywood are getting together to celebrate the continued growth of faith and family values in the movie and TV industry.

The MovieGuide 24th Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala takes place Friday, February 5, in Southern California. Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of MovieGuide, says the event gets more spectacular each year as the group’s influence in the entertainment industry increases. He tells OneNewsNow the gala will be packed with the Hollywood leaders. 

"Studio heads - the head of Columbia Pictures, the head of Paramount - some of the top people in the entertainment industry, some of the top celebrities [will be there]," he says.

Baehr says there's much to celebrate because of a flood of movies with faith and values content.

Baehr, Ted (Movieguide)"When we started MovieGuide, there was only one movie with positive Christian content,” he says. “Now it's up to over 60 percent of the movies. Some of them with clear Christian content occupy the top 10, so 90 percent of the top ten grossing movies have clear Christian content in them, which is absolutely wonderful."

But according to the veteran reviewer, it does create a slight problem for him as far as keeping up with the growing number of movies to review. “At the end of December, I had 40 movies to screen at 10 hours each within two weeks, so that's 400 hours in two weeks," he explains.

An hour-long version of the awards will be telecast on the REELZ Channel February 22 and 24.
