Angel Studios Illuminate 2023
Wow! Illuminate 2023 was an absolute success!
Actors, filmmakers, investors, and industry gurus gathered to mingle, celebrate Angel Studios' 2022 wins, and gear up for an incredible 2023 and 2024. Here's everything the night covered.
Sound of Freedom Release Date and Trailer
We announced the official theatrical release date for Sound of Freedom: the upcoming film about a federal agent that risks everything to free dozens of children from human trafficking.
Angel Collectible Scenes
We finally revealed the official Golden Scenes. Fans and actors talked about their favorite moments—from Simon walking on water to Jesus healing at the Pool of Bethesda and so many more.
It was a moment that highlighted the power of collectible scenes and the joy that comes from being a part of stories that matter.

A dystopian story of the power of family in the pressure cooker of an apocalypse.

An explosive animated series about one teen's fight to save his people from robotic rule.
A feature length documentary exploring near death experiences and realizations about the life beyond this one.
