King's Faith tells the story of Brendan King (Wilson), who attempts to leave his turbulent gang life behind him but finds that his past continues to threaten his new-found faith, family, and future.
Faith Street Film Partners, a collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters - totaling more than 1,000 people - based in Rochester, New York, decided to fund, film, and release the movie in a manner different from the traditional movie.
"Audiences are changing, and so should storytelling," director Nicholas DiBella said. "King's Faith is a very personal, true-to-life story that will resonate with the realities of families and teens. This is a bottom-up experience, very grassroots and community-driven which invites the audience to be actively involved every step of the way. That is the way real transformation happens."
In the truest example of audience participation, the film's distributor, Waking Giants Entertainment Group, is inviting audiences and groups to decide where the movie opens. Audiences can demand that King's Faith come to their local theater at www.kingsfaith.com
Based on early demands, King's Faith will open in Charlotte, NC, Dallas, TX, Phoenix, AZ, Colorado Springs, CO, Rochester, NY, Buffalo, NY, and Huntsville, AL. The producers and distributor are planning interactive audience tools including group study materials, outreach partnerships, and a specialty youth campaign to create awareness and heighten audience attendance.
