Mitch Emoff, writer and producer of "Father, Son & Holy Moses!" states, "We are blessed to have worked with such a talented crew and cast in the making of this film.

Dudley Jacobs, co-producer of the film, adds, "Family-friendly and faith-based projects are increasing in popularity. This film provides a unique and inclusive twist that makes spirituality accessible to all religious denominations. We are honored that the Park City International Film Festival has recognized our efforts."

"We are overwhelmed by the raw talent and emotion expressed in every film submitted," says Shelley Bingham Husk, Director of Programming of PCIFF. "Our mission is to promote a change to the culture of entertainment through value-based cinema; we are confident the films like Father, Son & Holy Moses! represent our festival goals and perfectly exemplify that mission." PCIFF is the internationally-recognized, premiere family-friendly film festival based in Park City, Utah and this year's festival runs August 10-13.
