Established in 2014, Byzanfest is an international film festival dedicated to Orthodox Christian cinema.

Liga: A Romanian Christmas in Concert is a documentary featuring a Romanian youth group that keeps ancient Christmas traditions alive. Through the power of song and through their faith, they bring joy to thousands with beautiful carols and stunning national costumes. Filmed over the month of December 2019, this documentary is a rare look into the Orthodox Christian culture of Romania and features carols that have never been shown to an English-speaking audience.

500 is a short narrative film that follows Maria, a troubled woman who rescues a mysterious man from drowning. She soon finds out that small kindnesses can come back and change a life.
