It's sure not a lamp shaped like a leg: The Widow's Might Wins Major Award!

A 19-year-old filmmaker beat out the makers of Fireproof  and Expelled  to win the best of festival prize at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival .  This is the prize that comes with $101,000 of cool, hard cash.  


The winner is the movie that we've talked about once or twice, The Widow's Might .  Now that its available for download and has won a major prize, we'll have to review it soon.  


The Rebelution Blog reports the full list of winners, scooping the film festival itself, which has nothing on their own web page yet, although the parent organization of the film festival, Doug Phillip's Vision Forum, does have a press release .  I'm late myself, and I've at least got the excuse of playing war with the national guard all weekend!  

All the rest of the categories are listed below.  Interestingly, the "Best Commercial Advertisement" and "Best Promotional Material" winners are not listed on either list of awardees.

Best Trailer:  Changing Lives  (this is apparently a "trailer" for the film festival itself, seems like a good way to get free advertising.  Anyway, you can watch it here , and it was made by Jeremiah Warren, who also worked on The Widow's Might 
Young Filmmakers:  A Journey of Hope
Best Treatment:  Sand Town (this is not a film, but an idea in the pre-script stage)
Best Creation Film:  Noah's Ark
Best Biblical Family Film:  Binding Faith
Best Short Film:  Prodigal Trilogy
Best Original Score:  The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry  (not to be confused with The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey )
Audience Choice:  The Widow's Might 
Best Documentary:  The Terry Schiavo Story (just when you thought CNN/MSNBC/FOX had wrung all there was out of that story.  But at least it beat Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed )
Best Feature Film:  Fireproof  (an interesting split with The Widow's Might .  Fireproof certainly doesn't need the money...)

Oh, and I should correct an earlier mistake.  The Widow's Might is available on DVD, in a limited edition run, for $20.  

(Thanks to Awaken Pictures for the head's up on this story!)

Hey there,

This is John Moore, writer/director of The Widow's Might. Please hold off on your review of the film from teh behemoth version; there was some terrible mixup, and they have a version on there that is several months old. It is awful, seriously. Email me your address, and I'll send you a couple screener copies for review. And please advise your readers to avoid the behemoth version until next week, when they will have it corrected.

Thank you!

~ In Christ, John.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on www.blogger.com. I have recently decided to find a good manufacturer of e-smokes. I'm done with paying so much for tobacco cigarettes.A friend recommended [url=http://www.insanereleases.info/greensmokef.html]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers supreme Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a variety of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented technology offers convenience and exhibit performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Hi everyone

[url=http://www.internetmosque.net ] audio Explanation of the English Quran [/url]


Mission

--------

Emperor Karl (Charlemagne) in 782 had 4500 Saxons, unwilling to convert to Christianity, beheaded. [DO30]
Peasants of Steding (Germany) unwilling to pay suffocating church taxes: between 5,000 and 11,000 men, women and children slain 5/27/1234 near Altenesch/Germany. [WW223]
Battle of Belgrad 1456: 80,000 Turks slaughtered. [DO235]
15th century Poland: 1019 churches and 17987 villages plundered by Knights of the Order. Victims unknown. [DO30]
16th and 17th century Ireland. English troops "pacified and civilized" Ireland, where only Gaelic "wild Irish", "unreasonable beasts lived without any knowledge of God or good manners, in common of their goods, cattle, women, children and every other thing." One of the more successful soldiers, a certain Humphrey Gilbert, half-brother of Sir Walter Raleigh, ordered that "the heddes of all those (of what sort soever thei were) which were killed in the daie, should be cutte off from their bodies... and should bee laied on the ground by eche side of the waie", which effort to civilize the Irish indeed caused "greate terrour to the people when thei sawe the heddes of their dedde fathers, brothers, children, kinsfolke, and freinds on the grounde".
Tens of thousands of Gaelic Irish fell victim to the carnage. [SH99, 225]

So I went ahead and splurged -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-ValveDock-with-Speakers.html]Fatman iTube Valvedock[/url] and I am very glad to report that I made out like a bandit. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months ago and just couldn't get that sound out of my head because it really truly surprised me. I searched online everywhere I could think of for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I phoned them first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and made the purchase. Dispatch was very fast. Everything was as it should be. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they dispatch outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

Really happy...
