HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- "Now, more than ever, the Hollywood industry is in need of uplifting moral content, and a select few producers and decision-makers in the industry recognize this. We are honored to have the relationships required to bridge the gap between faith-filled writers and producers," says Robby Baehr, Chief Executive Officer of Movieguide® & Chairman of the NRB Film Board. "Kairos Prize® gives up-and-coming screenwriters the opportunity to present new, fresh stories to some of the top executives in the entertainment industry, in hopes that their work can touch and uplift them."

"The Kairos Prize® script competition presents Hollywood with a fresh group of screenwriters who create content with strong faith and biblical values, something the industry desperately needs," says Dr. Ted Baehr, founder, and publisher of Movieguide®.
