Each year around OSCAR® time, MOVIEGUIDE® hosts its annual Awards Show, where it awards the best family-friendly movies and tv shows of the previous year, as well as handing out the Epiphany Prize for the Most Inspiring Movie and TV program. It also rewards the $15,000 Chronos Prize for Inspiring Screenplays by Established Filmmakers, and the $15,000 Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays sponsored by Pure Flix Streaming.
In addition to the awards, Dr. Baehr presents his highly anticipated annual statistical analysis based on the MOVIEGUIDE’s reviews. His analysis consistently shows studio executives and filmmakers that family-friendly, spiritually uplifting content can significantly increase the profitability of their movies.
