Helping you enjoy the ultimate in family fun with zero worries is our specialty. Industrious Family Films tells good stories that are always entertaining and never preachy - reclaiming the art of filmmaking one wholesome movie at a time.
Meet Mary Bowen, our director and Faustina Bowen, our 1st assistant director and script writer. This sister team is the creative talent behind our two feature length films: Outlaws of Ravenhurst and Grisly Grisell.
Outlaws of Ravenhurst is based on the beloved novel by Sr. M. Imelda Wallace. Grisly Grisell is inspired by A Tale of The Wars of The Roses by Charlotte Yonge, one of our favorite authors of books for tween girls.
Other films produced by the team include the 20 minute short Max & Carlota which tells the story of the tragic end of Maximillian von Hapsburg and the 2nd Mexican Empire, and currently in post production, Pelayo an 8 minute short about the valiant battle fought between the Moors and Visigoths when Pelagius of Asturias defended Christendom against great odds.
These young ladies are dedicated to bringing you quality entertainment without any questionable material. Just good, clean family fun.
Physical copies of Industrious Family Films movies are available for purchase in our Catholic Movie Store.
Many moms and dads would define family fun as the opportunity to pop some popcorn, gather in the living room, and turn on a good film that is engaging and has nothing objectionable in it.
Our DVD copies are perfect for these fun movie nights where you can sit back, relax and enjoy morally good entertainment.
We also have soundtracks and singles for sale.
End credits and closing songs have long been popular with audiences and we are excited to be able to provide our movie music!

The best part for me as a dad is the message and in particular how hard my son was hit by the importance, the greatness of the Eucharist, and how precious is the Blood of the King of Kings.
He was very impressed by the scene where It spilled, and watched literally wide-eyed and open mouthed as the kids discussed how to save It without touching It. He kept talking about this scene from Outlaws of Ravenhurst for two days!

My grandchildren were riveted watching Outlaws Of Ravenhurst...I think what appeals to them is the holy themes and knowing that real children were acting. They could appreciate the filmmaking and really entered into the movie. I haven't seen them do this with flashy, modern movies.

The Outlaws of Ravenhurst story is quite thrilling. IndustriousFamily.com did an excellent job of setting the scene, introducing the characters, telling the story, and building the excitement.

My young family and myself all very much enjoyed Grisly Grisell. The plot themes of steadfast love, true beauty of the heart, and the motivations of sinister characters brought out a deep inquisitiveness in my children. So pleased to enjoy a wholesome story!

Very good job with casting, costumes, and sets. Fabulous job scripting Grisly Grisell...The language is surprisingly mature and thought provoking. Very good sense for editing...the movie flows very well.

Good stories allow you to enjoy true family fun while eliminating all the fuss that comes with sanitizing Hollywood productions by watching our always captivating, never preachy movies. The inspiration for these films springs from our deeply rooted Catholic values and beliefs.
Good stories from history come alive in our movies. Children love learning from these heroes of our past. Read more about why we tell good stories here.
We love movies and want to let you know what other movies we recommend watching. Our family movie guide provides reviews for dozens of good movies for movie night. We also have scoured the internet to bring you independent films produced by other Christian movie makers.
Of course many young people in our audience want to make movies of their own. Our movie production guide teaches you how to make a movie.
This guide takes you step by step through pre-production, production and post production so you and your children can start your own movie project taking family fun to the next level.
Learn how to write a setting that works, how to lift content from books legally, create a project budget, tackle stage fright, and even how to apply a natural makeup look for stage and screen. Once post-production is complete, celebrate your project by throwing an Old-Hollywood-inspired premiere party!
Keep in mind that your first movies do not need to be full length with all the exciting costumes and sets. Start small. See if you even like it before getting too involved. Our first few films were all short films. In addition to our kids' historical shorts, you can watch our shorts about the life of a saint for inspiration on the simplicity of your first films!
