The official award ceremony was held on the 28 October 2010 at Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nauveau Rosebank. This year the winning film in the Feature Film category was none other than locally produced FAITH LIKE POTATOES and proved once again that South Africa has what it takes to compete with film productions from around the world. Frans Cronje, producer of the film said, "We continue to be amazed by the way that God is using Faith Like Potatoes around the world. Four years after releasing the movie, we still receive scores of emails every week from people that testify of how Faith Like Potatoes changed their lives."

LOST BOY: The next chapter received the awards as the Winning Documentary Film. This documentary is based on Greg Laurie's search for the meaning of life; born out of wedlock to an alcoholic mother, his life was suddenly changed when he encountered a group of young Christians on his high school campus in Newport Beach, California.

LOST AT SEA received the award as the Winning Short Film and is part of an eight-part film series; Full Flame. Mr Andre Britz accepted the award on behalf of Christ for all Nations Ministries (Cfan), saying "Lost at Sea" is the first of this dramatic eight-part series, produced for the singular purpose of triggering an avalanche of soul-winning throughout the world.

Other great films to be seen during the festival include TO SAVE A LIFE, FAITH HAPPENS, LETTERS TO GOD, LIKE DANDELION DUST, LOVING THE BAD MAN,STANDING FIRM, GOD OF WONDERS, THE CROSS, MORE THAN DREAMS, DARWIN: THE VOYAGE THAT SHOOK THE WORLD, BARBER SHOP, BONGANI and many more.
