Final movie and television nominees have been named for the Faith & Freedom Awards for Promoting Positive American Values, to be presented Friday, Feb. 10 at the 20th Annual Movieguide® Faith & Values Awards Gala at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Los. Angeles.

The Faith & Freedom Awards are given each year at the Awards program to a movie and a TV program that extols or celebrates America, patriotism, liberty, free enterprise, and limited government.

Dr. Ted Baehr, founder of Movieguide®, says, “We began the Faith & Freedom Awards to encourage filmmakers to choose themes which will honor the values that have made America great.”
