"It's a Christian movie, but I think it's the kind that a non-Christian could watch," said John Martens, pastor of The Connection and the movie's screenwriter.
The Scarf tells the story of a teenage girl caught up in a spiritual battle between believing in UFOs and the occult or faith in Christ.
"Both of the main characters deal with a spiritual transition," said Martens.
Martens also hopes it will raise awareness of Metro Vancouver as a mission field. "We really think that Vancouver is so key in the work that God wants to do around the world. But we need more help here," he said.
Martens recalled one man telling him "he had read the story four times and really enjoyed it.
Helping them to stay on budget, said Martens, was the city's willingness to give them a "substantial break" on the number of permits they needed for on-location shooting.
"We used seven homes, over 50 vehicles-many of them antique-two schools, several parks, and many, many churches," he said.
Martens said they would definitely like to tackle another movie, but not right away. "We're pretty busy as it is," he said, "but being involved in the media and making movies is an important part of our overall strategy and dream, even if takes a little while."
"As John began to share what his vision was for doing the movie, that it's designed to influence, to give witness, to encourage his own congregation that they're capable of doing something that is bigger than themselves, that made sense to me," he said.
