ii Films is a very small independent production company made up of just our husband-and-wife team.  We are committed to making relevant, meaningful, faith-based family movies that offer messages of hope and redemption -- stories of realistic struggles that will connect with a broad audience.  To date we have released two full-length feature films:

  • The Current (2014) was named the 2nd Best Film of 2014 by ChristianFilmDatabase.com, received the highest rating of five of five Doves from The Dove Foundation, and won ICVM's Gold Crown Award for Best Youth Film of 2014.
  • Miles Between Us (2017) won ICVM's Gold Crown Award for Best Drama under $250,000 (2017) and Bronze Crown for Best Picture (2017), received five of five Doves from the Dove Foundation, and was nominated for 5 awards at the International Christian Film Festival (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Screenplay).  It is being released worldwide this spring by Bridgestone Multimedia Group.
Our third film, Treasure Lies, is the story of a hardworking, all-American kid who learns some valuable lessons about greed, jealousy, gratitude, really bad choices, character, and forgiveness -- all through an unexpected windfall.  (For where your treasure lies, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21.)  Treasure Lies is set for production this summer, which is why we need your help!  

Like most independent Christian film companies do, we are seeking funding for production costs.  For what it's worth, we both have regular full-time jobs and have not taken a salary from these first films, but filmmaking is expensive!  We've set up a funding model for this next project that includes both sponsorships and small business loans.  

Sponsors from $100 - $399

  • Get a copy of the DVD
  • Your name in the credits

Sponsors at the $400+ level

  • Get a copy of the DVD
  • Your name in the credits
  • AND an invitation to join us at one of the premiers of the movie in either MN or OK
Small business loans.  For those seeking to participate with a larger dollar amount of $5000+, we are seeking/offering a small business loan structure:  interest-bearing loans to be repaid with the revenues from all three of our movies.  To learn about this option, please email Scott@iifilms.com.

Your help means so much!  Our films have low budgets, but their impact has been felt around the country and around the world:

"The Current is a gem of a film.  I watched it at a time when I was at one of my deepest points of despair and had all but given up on God.  It spoke deep into my pain in a way few things have.  The honesty about how devastating a loss can be captivated me.  However, it’s not the pain of loss that moved me but rather the kindness and heartfelt love that both transformed Jake and also healed the great loss.  I love how the entire community offered support to all those struggling.  Love conquers all.  I highly recommend this film to anyone who has lost their faith in God because of tragedy and loss. May it inspire you as it did me."

Thank you SO MUCH for your support!   Please forward this or our contact info to anyone that you think might be interested.

Thank you.
All for His glory! 
Scott and Diane Peterson

I have been pleased with your talents in the other 2 films and you allowed us the priviledge of participating. I am so happy to send a prop you requested in honor of a very loved husband.
