Film industry is a mature movement that is over 100 years old. Although it was not always the case, older movies where generally more family friendly, and religion friendly. That is probably the reason why there was no such thing as a Christian film industry for a very long time. There was no desparate need in it. The film phenomenon began when Thomas Edison and others invented the technology to make it happen. And it has continued to grow into a multi-billion dollar industry.
> About Christian film industry
As Hollywood movies became increasingly more offensive to the Christian audience, there arose a need for an alternative industry. While some Christians simply complained about the moral content of modern films, others decided to create films that would provide better content.
> The technical aspect
Because Christian film industry is so much younger than the Hollywood industry, the technical quality of these films is often worse. Christian film industry is mostly a group of independent film makers, who often start from scratch. But as the industry matures, the quality improves with time. A Christian film with lower technical quality can still, however, get enough views, because it speaks to the values of the viewer.
> The themes of Christian movies
Most Christian films in existence today are made in the drama genre. That is, they tell a story, with a serious theme. Some of these movies are made to help people who, themselves, or whose family members, go through serious illness. Others try to teach people how to resolve family and relationship problems. Others try to teach how to live in a today's world while preserving your faith. Some of these movies are made in a setting of today's real world, which is a very violent and morally degraded place. Others create a different world, where most people in a town are Christian.
> Christianity and film
Christianity and film are very compatible with each other. Drama and skits have been one of the most used tools in church ministries for a long time. So film is just a more technologically challanging step in the Christian drama movement. In fact, drama as we know it today, began with the traveling circuses of the middle ages, which usually employed religious themes in their performances.
