A film created by a Missouri State communication instructor will be on a short list of feature-length movies screened at the upcoming 20th Annual International Family Film Festival in Los Angeles Nov. 6-8.
Competing with filmmakers from across the world
“Heaven Won’t Wait” is a 3D Christian film written and directed by per-course faculty Dr. Sandra K. House.
The movie was produced by emeritus professor Dr. Cliff L. House, and three MSU students worked on set: Kelly Johnston, Mitch Brauer and Katelyn Sullivan.
Doctor goes on journey of spiritual discovery
“Heaven Won’t Wait,” filmed in Greene and Christian counties, is about a doctor who uproots his family to care for the sick and dying in a flooded area of the Ozarks. There, he meets a minister on a similar path, but of a spiritual nature.
Through near-death experiences, comedy and a light romance, this movie shows the choices characters make to live daily in Christ-like service to others, and going above and beyond what is asked. It ends with an original song, “Are You Ready to Go.”
