MEDIA ADVISORY, Mar. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- SAVING GOD, the recent DVD release by Cloud Ten Pictures and Clear Entertainment starring Ving Rhames, has been inspiring audiences and winning film festival awards across the nation. Now distributors Cloud Ten Pictures, best known as producers of the popular LEFT BEHIND series of films, are hosting the "Be Inspired SAVING GOD Song Contest," which allows individuals the opportunity to have their original songs inspired by the film released nationwide on a compilation CD, "Songs Inspired by SAVING GOD."
"Be Inspired: The SAVING GOD Song Contest" seeks submissions of original songs inspired by viewers' experiences watching the film SAVING GOD. "We were hearing so many stories of how SAVING GOD was affecting viewers, and inspiring their lives and faith. The idea of collecting songs inspired by the film and releasing them on a compilation CD, was itself inspired by the film," explains Cloud Ten CEO André van Heerden.
SAVING GOD tells the story of Armstrong Cane (played by Ving Rhames) a reformed ex-con, who returns from prison to preach at his father's former church, to find the neighborhood overtaken by drug dealers and the congregation in crisis. As Cane works to save the community he left behind, to save his young parishioners from the dangerous draw of the streets and to save himself from the demons of his violent past, he faces the ultimate question: Who will save God for the souls who have lost Him?
SAVING GOD is an emotionally charged film, that wows audiences with its contemporary message and moving performances. The film has also been turning heads at film festivals across the United States, and was recently awarded "Best Drama" at the Int'l Family Film Festival in Hollywood, California. The film has also received international recognition, being nominated for the "Time For Peace" humanitarian film awards.
Contest submissions must be submitted by June 15, 2009. Finalists will be posted on the contest website and winners will be selected by voting. Winning songs will be released on a compilation CD entitled "Songs Inspired by SAVING GOD" through E1 Entertainment Distribution.
