Join us for the PRAYnksters Family Film Festival (PFFF), a celebration of creativity, fun, and positivity! The festival showcases the best family-friendly films from around the world, selected by a panel of judges for their inspiring themes, engaging storytelling, and entertainment value.

PRAYnksters is dedicated to promoting positivity, faith, and kindness in the world. Our message has reached millions of people around the globe, and we've been featured on just about every major international media outlet, including CNN, MSNBC, Yahoo, and more. We've also been featured on many television shows, have secured distribution partnerships, and our videos have amassed millions of views.

PFFF is broken down into two parts:

Part 1 – PFFF will be announcing bi-monthly winners in all categories, starting with the June/July submission period and continuing through to October/November. Each bi-monthly winner will receive recognition, and a few select top projects will have the option to be featured on PRAYnksters’ YouTube channel.

Part 2 - In addition, we will be hosting a live screening event for our selected annual top projects. Being named a bi-monthly top project, does not automatically qualify your project for the annual screening. The screening will be a fantastic opportunity for filmmakers, industry professionals, and families to come together and enjoy the best family-friendly films of the year.

The best part? Tickets to the live screening will go towards buying Christmas gifts for foster kids, making it a great way to give back to the community while enjoying the festival.

All profits from the festival will go towards creating inspirational videos that promote positivity and kindness in the world. By submitting and/or attending PFFF, you are supporting a great cause and spreading love and hope to those who need it most.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email.
