Where Are the Spiritual Films?

Updated on November 4, 2013

As the title of the article mentions, I wonder if there are people like me out there that want more out of their films than what Hollywood typically delivers.

How many explosions and car chases do we really need to see?

How many “end of the world” movies do we have to be subjected to?

Is this a reflection of a violent people? Or is it possible that the films that speak to our hearts and souls are, out there, waiting to be found?

As more and more people wake up, they are discovering that they want more out of their films than what is typically advertised in the media.

Our souls long for something that is inspiring and uplifting. We want to feel connected to God, each other, as well as to our self.

Spiritual films give us hope. The magic that they show on the screen is a reminder of the magic and wonder that exists within us.

We can choose to ignore the “doom and gloom” that Hollywood wants us to spend our hard earned money on and direct our attention to something that is transformational.

It is very important to know that we have a choice in the manner. What we spend our money on is a vote. Why not spend your time and money on something that is valuable to your soul?

Family Friendly Films

Many of the spiritual films out there are geared for the entire family. If it is not, it will usually be indicated. Parents should do their research to make sure the film is appropriate for their child.

Some of the most memorable movies I have seen were family films!

More than Entertainment

Spiritual films go far beyond just entertaining its audience and delves into deeper material that has the potential to raise the consciousness of the individual, as well as the planet. Instead of watching films to escape reality, these powerful films spark intelligent conversations.

Where to Find Spiritual Films

When it comes to finding spiritual films, there are several options to choose from.

One can order and purchase DVDs and Blu-Ray Discs, stream films online, watch screenings at their spiritual centers, or watch the films at a cinema. A person may also choose to become a member of a spiritual film club, such as Spiritual Cinema Circle, Gaiam TV, or Hallmark Spiritclips. For those that are not interested in joining a club, you have the option of purchasing DVDs on Family TV dot com, Amazon, as well as other websites or companies that sell spiritual films. You also have the option of checking out different websites that offer reviews and listings of the best spiritual films. Of course, an individual has to exercise caution in regards to what someone considers “best,” as this will vary from person to person. At the very least, the website may point you in the right direction.

Hallmark Spiritclips offers “heart-felt family friendly movies.” They include shorts, documentaries, feature films, lectures, as well as other videos. These videos can be viewed on your computer or other digital devices. http://www.hallmarkspiritclips.com/

Spiritual Cinema Circle shares inspirational films for the heart and soul. Each month the Circle sends out a new DVD with four films. They usually contain one feature film along with shorts. Sometimes a documentary may take the place of the feature film. The Circle also offers an added bonus of unlimited access to Gaiam TV. Gaiam offer a variety of different videos for the mind, body and spirit that can be viewed on the computer or digital device. http://www.spiritualcinemacircle.com/

      Happy New Year Terry27 and Jackie, there are spiritual films but you must look for them. There's a cable church channel and other cable stations that show them. It depends on what network you have. Thank you for raising this issue.

      vandynegl, I am with you there. A movie must have a good story, if not, it's not worth my time. Uplifting and inspirational films inspire me to do my part in making the world a better place. It was my pleasure to share the resources.

      Gets me thinking of the past films that I've seen that were uplifting and inspirational! I am done with the violent ones. If there isn't a really good story behind it, it's not worth my time :) Thanks for sharing the resources for us!

      You know I pop one of these in every night that are older than the hills but they never grow old do they? (Or watch one online.) I sleep like a baby! Whether it is true or not they make the world sane again. ^+

      DDE, thank you for your comment. When I was in my early 20s, I used to spend a long time at the video store, trying to find a video that was inspirational. Thanks to the internet we can, now, discover films from around the world that touch our hearts.

      The "Turning Point" sounds like an incredible series, Marie. I am all for programs that make a difference in the world. It makes my heart sing. I am glad I was able to share some information on where to find spiritual films. I am currently a member of Spiritual Cinema Circle. They compile amazing films and shorts from around the world.

      I watched "Turning Point" in cable tonight which is a series that shares stories of individuals or organizations that have made a difference in people's lives. I am happy I found an inspirational channel.

      Thanks for the list, Terry! It's going to come in very handy as Phil and I have been wanting to watch spiritual films.
