Collaborate With Us

Family Theater creates family and faith-friendly film, television, and digital media.  We produce some values stories for more mainstream audiences, and some projects especially for those who want a more explicit exploration of faith in life today.  We all increase our reach and impact when we collaborate with others.  Whether it be through the many interns that work with us each year, or the media organizations we partner with, we look forward to discussing potential collaborations.
