A Question of Faith, starring Richard T. Jones and Kim Fields was screened as the closing film at MegaFest 2017, the internationally acclaimed four-day faith, film and family festival. Although they were able to accommodate 690 people, more than a thousand showed up for the screening and organizers had to close the doors and regretfully turn away hundreds.
Cast members Jones, Fields, T. C. Stallings, Donna Biscoe, Amber Nelon Thompson and Marliss Amiea were all in attendance for the red carpet screening and Q & A. Actor Blair Underwood and music artists Fred Hammond and Erykah Badu were also in attendance.
When the film ended, the audience erupted giving the movie a standing ovation. Immediately after, producers and cast members took to the stage for a discussion and to answer questions from the attendees.
“Attending MegaFest with “A Question of Faith” was a life changing experience for me,” said Angela White, the film’s producer. “To witness the vision that I conceived grow into something that I can now introduce to the world, and be warmly received by hundreds of people, is nothing short of inspiring. From the attendees who cried, laughed and rejoiced, it exceeded my expectations and galvanized the entire team to continue pushing Christian films further into the marketplace.”
One of the biggest moments of the evening was when guests were treated to a brief impromptu performance by the talented Christian music artist Amber Nelon Thompson.
“This was my first time attending MegaFest and I was overwhelmed at the magnitude of the event!,” shares the Daywind Records artist.
“I was honored to be representing the film A Question of Faith, and I’m thankful to Bishop T.D. Jakes for allowing faith-based films to be screened at the event. It was truly amazing to see the excitement of the attendees and we hope that they’ll spread the word so others can join in that excitement!”
A Question of Faith tells a moving story of three families from different cultures, who live in the same community; they are complete strangers living vastly separate lives until a texting and driving accident thrusts them onto converging paths where they discover God’s love, forgiveness, grace and mercy.
Along with a strong message of faith, the talented and well-known cast delivers a compelling storyline that touches on timely topics such as racial prejudice, the consequences of texting and driving, and the debate surrounding organ donation.

Thomas Howell (“The Amazing Spiderman,” “E.T.”), GregAlan Williams (“Greenleaf,” “All Saints”), Jaci Velasquez (“I’m Not Ashamed,” Platinum Christian Recording Artist) Renee O’Connor (“Xena: Warrior Princess”), T.C. Stallings (“War Room,” “Courageous”), Amber Nelon Thompson, Donna Biscoe, Karen Valero and Marliss Amiea.
