“Twice Owned” is an official selection for The Christian Life International Film Festival, being held this September in Ontario, Canada.



The Christian Life International Film Festival is dedicated to the good values essential to making clean, meaningful films. CLIFF is a powerful weekend which touches audiences in a lasting way through cinema.


Austin, TX || “Twice Owned” was awarded an Honorable Mention by The Attic Film Festival, held in April, 2016.

The Attic Film Fest’s mission is to support and empower Independent filmmakers to spread Christ’s message through film. It is our sincere prayer that the films screened will honor Christ and His message of forgiveness and love for all and bless those watching them.


Grand Rapids, MI || “Twice Owned” was selected for the GloryReelz Christian Film Festival where it received the award for Best Short Film. “I’m really proud of the finished movie.” said director, Caleb Phipps, who is delighted with the GloryReelz recognition. Many people volunteered time and property for the making of this movie. And lead actor, Stone Davis, put in a long weekend for this production.

“Twice Owned presents the essential message of the Gospel in such a clear and creative way,” says music composer, David Michael Hyde. “I am honored to be associated with such a powerful tool that brings glory to Christ and helps expand His Kingdom.”


March 19, 2016 |  Nominated for Best Short, “Twice Owned” was a Finalist at the Christian Worldview Film Festival this year. Johnathan Schutz (visual effects artist) and Benjamin Owen (producer) were present for the movie screenings and awards event. Audiences commented on its “good story arc” and liked the “watercolor effects”.


“We wanted to produce something for low-cost ministry use,” Owen explained, “and we hope it will provide a good starting point for presenting the Gospel.” The short film and bonus videos are free to view online, including the study guide.

“Twice Owned was designed as a package — with study guide, etc — because the point of this allegory is to illustrate an aspect of redemption, and we didn’t want to leave that unexplained.” says Owen.
