Family Values Cinema and Parents Television Council Collaborate on Offering Families A Trustworthy DVD Of The Month Club

Camarillo, Ca—May 21—Family Values Cinema and the Parents Television Council have joined forces to launch a distinctive and affordable “family friendly” DVD-of-the-month club in answer to America’s demand for positive, family-oriented film entertainment.


“We’re hoping these wholesome films will be enjoyed by people of all faiths and help bring families together -- whether at home, at church, or other faith-based community events. These films are cherished by all people, whether they’re eight years old or eighty,” says Family Values Cinema Founder Patty Leonard.

“In keeping with our mission of protecting children against sex, profanity and violence in entertainment, we are pleased to join with Family Values Cinema in launching this landmark program that provides a reliable source for families to purchase home video products,” says PTC President Tim Winter.  “We encourage all families to take advantage of the Family Values Cinema DVD-of-the-month club which will bring the best in family-oriented, wholesome films to homes across America.”

Family Values Cinema films have received the Dove Foundation’s “Family Approved” seal and the approval of The National Board of Mothers. Sourcing the very best in “family-friendly” films, Family Values Cinema offers subscribers the chance to receive, keep, and build their personal family film collections. FVC has made it irresistibly affordable to try out its movie club. For as little as $4.95 for the first month, families will receive their introductory DVD package. Thereafter, the cost of one family friendly movie a month (with all the extras) is under $10, and the cost of the two-movie package is under $15.  And, unlike other monthly DVD programs, members keep their DVDs for their personal family library. With each month’s movie selections, members also receive fun “intermission” programs as well as a Family Discussion Guide (to encourage conversation about the movie from a faith and values perspective). To learn more about FVC, visit http://www.familyvaluescinema.com.

With Family Values Cinema, there is no more wasting time in the video store or surfing for reviews on the internet. FVC screens thousands of films and, with significant input and oversight by ‘The National Board of Mothers’ (a group of select “moms” who review movies based on a rigorous family friendly criteria), FVC selects only the very best and most wholesome family content. “These are movies I want my child to see, and they are films parents will really enjoy too,” explains Leonard.


As a subscriber, part of the member fee will go directly to support the Parents Television Council.
