Good Faith Film Fund
Springville, UT 84663, US
The Good Faith Film Fund is seeking capital to leverage the success of its management in film development, production and distribution to provide Hollywood-sized budgets and Academy-award winning production values to middle America, values-driven, faith-based films.
The first movie is already scripted and developed with an Academy-award winning film director attached who has production and P&A financing lined up when the fund can provide a minimum of $1,000,000 in collateral.
The movie will be made for $5,000,000 and is based on a New York Times best seller. A faith-based film distributor has pledged to invest $5,000,000 in P&A funding to market the film nationally once the film is made.
The principals of the Good Faith Film Fund have experience producing, booking, releasing and distributing films that have achieved hundreds of millions of dollars in box office revenue and millions of units in DVD sales through major theatrical chains such as Regal, Cinemark, and AMC and big box retailers such as Wal-Mart, Costco, Barnes and Noble, and Books-A-Million.
The fund simply needs $1,000,000 that will be placed in an interest bearing bank account to collateralize a loan that will fund the production and P&A for the movie. The interest bearing account will pay 12% annual interest on the fund to the investor with a complete return of the capital within two years but no sooner than one, at which point if not paid back in full with promised interest, the loan will convert to a percentage in the film distribution partner’s successful 28-year old book publishing business that currently has $5,000,000 in annual revenues and is growing.

Faith-based Film Distribution
With the recent box office success of faith-based movies such as “God’s Not Dead” ($60 million) and “Heaven is for Real” ($91 million), the great public has demonstrated it has an appetite and desire for faith-affirming movies. We have been working in the home and family entertainment business for over 30 years combined and believe a great void of quality entertainment exists in the faith-based movie segment which is proving to be quite profitable due to a hunger for values-driven, faith-promoting entertainment.
President Executive Officer
Over the past 11 years, Mr. Harden has been one of a handful of top executives in the emerging Mollywood, the small but growing LDS “Mormon” movie industry. His first-hand experience has given him unique insights into and developed relationships with top national theatrical chains, wholesale and retail DVD outlets, and digital streaming companies few people have access to outside of Hollywood. Currently acting as the film acquisition manager for Cedar Fort Publishing and Media, Mr. Harden distributes “The Saratov Approach,” a critically acclaimed hit earning over $2 million in its initial box office release. “The Saratov Approach” is one of many films that if capitalized sufficiently would have gone from regional success to national treasure. Mr. Harden has been asked by Cedar Fort to raise capital for the Good Faith Film Fund to collateralize the production and distribution of faith-based movies where Hollywood has little authenticity and is leaving money on the table.
