It appears that a new film genre, Christian faith films, are increasing in production and gaining popularity in American culture. This research examines what factors are leading to the development of the Christian faith film genre. This study looks into how these films are being supported financially, attracting star talent, tackling the supply and demand for the creation of their content, reviews their developing success and explores the themes associated with the Christian faith sub-genre of film that makes it unique from other genres. The study intends to answer why it is important that the niche genre is developing as a whole and why there is a need and desire for this to be happening. The genre’s growing credibility and development is establishing the Christian faith-based films as a stand-alone and respected genre market in today’s modern society.
