On Saturday night, 'IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America' won the Jubilee Award for Best Documentary at the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival among 25 semi-finalists. 'IndoctriNation' was also runner-up for the $101,000 Best of Festival Award, which went to 'Courageous,' recently the best-selling DVD in America.'IndoctriNation' directors Colin Gunn and Joaquin Fernandez and co-producer Scott Eash were present to receive one of the highest honors in the Christian filmmaking community in front of 2,100 attendees from 40 states and multiple foreign countries, awarded to them the night before the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood.

IndoctriNation' features the emotional testimony of Brian Rohrbough who lost his son during the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. "It may have taken a school shooting to wake us up, to see the danger," Rohrbough says in the film, "but that's a very small danger compared to all the other things that go on that can destroy our children."

With saddening poignancy, less than 36 hours after the SAICFF closing ceremony, another tragic school shooting occurred. Thomas "TJ" Lane, a sophomore at Chardon High School, began a shooting rampage in the school cafeteria during breakfast on Monday, February 27. Of the five students who were shot, three have now died.
