Denver–The Award Winning feature film, “The Goal,” produced by Film It Productions (www.film-itproductions.com) has done well in the United States since it was picked up for Worldwide distribution through Maverick Entertainment and is now starting to gain recognition throughout the world. The Colorado made independent family film has recently gained distribution in several countries including Taiwan, South Africa, and Canada. Negotiations are also underway for distribution in China.
“The Goal” chronicles the lives of two athletes who are on an adrenaline track, one to the Olympics and the other to the world of Pro Soccer. Steve and Jason cross paths while rebuilding their lives following severe accidents. They find hope through the sport of Quad Rugby.
Darla Rae, the film’s writer, director, and executive producer, was inspired to create “The Goal” when a friend’s son was injured. She watched how old friends left and new friendships were built. “I really saw how strong family was, and how much they relied on their faith in God, and the miracles that were revealed. I want people to be encouraged and uplifted by their stories,” said Rae.
“The Goal” truly is an inspirational family film. It has won several awards including the Golden Ten Award at the Mumbai International Film Festival in the Sports-Based Feature Film Category, which is one of the festival’s highest honors.
“The Goal” also received four “doves” from The Dove Foundation. The Dove Foundation was created to identify movies that are family friendly. For more information on The Dove Foundation visit www.dove.org.
