‘Wild Faith’ Earns CDI More Honors

Posted by

The west coast premiere of Collective Development Incorporated’s 1870s family drama, ‘Wild Faith,’ provided not only continued validation and a special connection with audiences, the film was a 4-star hit, literally, in the entertainment capitol of the world with industry insiders.

The work of the Michigan-based production company (CDI), (www.cdiproductions.com) was named by judges on Sept. 9th at the Burbank International Film Festival as ‘Best Faith-Based Film’. This also comes on the heels of a Silver Crown Award at ICVM (International Christian Visual Media) and a Runner Up ‘Best Film’ at the International Christian Film Festival where Ms. LaStrada won ‘Best Actress’ for her performance.

Written by CDI’s CEO, DJ Perry, who also co-stars (as trapper Ben Lily), ‘Wild Faith’ also again earned Best Actor and Best Actress nominations for ensemble leads (Shane Hagedorn as ‘Emmett’) and Lauren LaStrada as ‘Haddie’), at the Burbank International Film Festival.

This story, ‘Wild Faith’ is coming to audiences right when it’s most needed. I encourage everyone young and old to take a watch.
– DJ Perry, screenwriter

Wild Faith’ is a racially-charged, socially-challenging parable as relevant today as it was post-Civil War and thru the Jim Crow era. Elements of war, greed, hatred, racism, prejudice, bigotry and religious zealotry all play out as the story unfolds. But while ‘Wild Faith’ is a story of many layers, there is one constant theme. Humanity. The film devoid of politics, speaks to truth and love, with thought at its core. The belief that there is a path to righteousness for all human beings. If they choose it.
