"It has been our goal from the very beginning to produce content for families that carry a strong message of hope and faith".

CVI Productions is currently in pre-production with their third film, "The Connection".

What is an Independent film?

An Independent film is a movie that is produced outside of the major film studio system. Typically viewed as a "low budget film", the producer of such films has the freedom and artistic ability to capture a personal vision with fewer obstacles to overcome such as highly paid and demanding actors, impossible deadlines, and other Hollywood studio restrictions.

Over the years the industry has blossomed into a major player of blockbuster filming.

Once the production is completed, the Independent film is submitted to film festivals nationally and internationally for recognition. If purchased by the "right" company, the film can be marketed and distributed as a Blu-ray/DVD release, or can be featured on Netflix and/or picked up by a major cable production company such as Lifetime Movies, Showtime or HBO.

The Dove Foundation

The Dove Foundation believes that CVI Productions content makes for the kind of great entertainment families and individuals can discover, discuss and enjoy together as a family.
