(Madison WI) — The 2008 Faith in Focus Awards posted at faithvisuals.com recognized Micro-Enterprise, a video from InterVarsity’s Twentyonehundred Productions, as the website’s top documentary of 2007. “This powerful video from Twentyonehundred Productions … shows people acting decisively and effectively in unjust situations,” wrote faithvisuals.com assistant editor Ryan Hamm. The video was produced for showing at InterVarsity’s Urbana 06 Student Missions Convention and uploaded to faithvisuals.com in 2007.
A production titled Intersect|Culture was judged a co-winner in the category of best series. The series was produced cooperatively with Christianity Today International to answer the question: “How can followers of Christ be a counterculture for the common good?”
In addition to winning critical acclaim, a list of the most popular faithvisuals.com videos for 2007 also shows two InterVarsity videos in the top ten. Listed at #4 was Poverty, a mini-documentary that contrasts poverty and affluence, uploaded March 2006. The #6 most popular video of 2007 was O Come O Come Emmanuel, a music worship video also uploaded in March 2006.
“We are honored to receive recognition for the communication tools that we produce,” said Scott Wilson, the director of Twentyonehundred Productions. “We are even more pleased that they are being used to spread the gospel.”
