HopeForHurtingHeartsDVD-webHope for Hurting Hearts (Word Films/Word Distribution) has been announced as an Official Selection in the Feature Documentary category at the 2014 Winnipeg Real to Reel Film Festival. The film is in the Feature Documentary category of the Manitoba, Canada-based festival and is eligible for judging.

“Why does God allow suffering?” asked Paul Eaton, pastor and Hope for Hurting Hearts’ producer. “This is one of the key questions of the human experience. This film looks at suffering through the lives of four people as they grapple with that question. Their answer will surprise you.”

Narrated by Dr. James Dobson, the film features testimonies from Greg Laurie—who wrote the Hope for Hurting Hearts book (NavPress) on which the movie is based—and his wife, Cathe Laurie, as well as author and motivational speaker Nick Vujicic and recording artist Jeremy Camp.

“The festival offers an exciting look into the latest movies to hit the market,” said Paul Boge, coordinator for the 2014 festival. “Our goal is to bring to festival goers the best in the latest films and TV episodes that will encourage, challenge and inspire us to positive values and to a greater understanding of the human journey.”

The film festival runs Feb. 18-23. The winner in the Feature Documentary category will be announced on the final day of the festival.

Since its September 2013 release, Hope for Hurting Hearts has been recognized as a Best Documentary Winner, Official Selection or singled out for a special "best of show" award at the Churches Making Movies Christian Film Festival, where it received two honors; the Christian Life International Film Festival; the International Film Festival for Spirituality, Religion and Visionaries; the International Christian Film Festival; and the World Film Awards. The film also was recently honored with the Special Jury Award at the Nevada Film Festival.
