Inspirational Family Film with Foster Care Theme

(Nashville, TN.  August 30, 2013) – Provident Films and Faith Street Film Partners LLC announce the DVD release date for the inspirational family film KING’S FAITH for October 22, 2013.

KING’S FAITH received an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences, media and ministry leaders during its theatrical run during the spring of 2013.  The film has a special message to young people who are challenged in today’s culture with making the right choices and learning to break free of past mistakes.

KING’S FAITH stars Emmy Award winning actress Lynn Whitfield (The Women of Brewster Place, Madea’s Family Reunion), Crawford Wilson (Zoey 101), Kayla Compton, and James McDaniel (Malcolm X, NYPD Blue). The official website is

KING’S FAITH features the themes of courage, forgiveness and overcoming your past highlighted with the important message of youth in foster care. The film prompts audiences to consider many of the questions they struggle with today: How can I stand firm in my faith when life’s challenges put me to the test?   Where do I turn when I feel paralyzed by loss and grief?   Can I find true forgiveness from my wrong choices?

Producer Nicholas DiBella relates the surprising success of this independent film to the core message that resonates with audiences of all ages. “KING’S FAITH reminds us that our past doesn’t define us,” DiBella said. “No matter where you’ve been, or how lost you feel, you should never give up hope or faith.”

SYNOPOSIS: Eighteen foster homes. Nine arrests. One life-changing moment.

After Brendan King’s (Wilson) life spiraled to rock bottom, the teen found hope in a new relationship with Christ while serving time in a juvenile penitentiary. Recently released from prison, Brendan finds solace in the foster home of a couple struggling with suppressed grief.

As the city-bred teen enrolls at a suburban high school, he finds support from a group of believers. Yet the bonds of his old way of life—and the gang that wants to know where he hid their stash on a long-ago night—are strong. In his darkest moment, Brendan found faith. Now he must decide if it’s worth the price to hold on to it.

KING’S FAITH is produced by Nicholas DiBella and Faith Street Film Partners LLC, a Rochester, NY-based collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters.
