U.S. International Festival Honors The Adventists 2 Film

Story by John Dillon

The Adventists 2 documentary film won the prestigious Silver Screen Award at the 2014 U.S. International Film & Video Festival. The festival, which annually attracts some 1,000 entries from around the world for the various categories, was founded in 1967 and is headquartered in Los Angeles.

The Adventists 2 was filmed in Haiti, Brazil, Africa, China, Peru and the Dominican Republic and is currently airing on PBS stations in the U.S. The film tells the dramatic story of how Seventh-day Adventists are impacting medicine and healthcare, particularly in the developing world.

"Through the film, we were able to raise awareness of how some 1.2 billion people around the world have little or no access to healthcare," says filmmaker Martin Doblmeier of Journey Films. "And, where governments fail to provide, faith groups are stepping up to care for those most in need."
