Bobby Downes has produced more than a dozen feature films for the faith market. Beginning in 1999, Bobby produced his first independent feature film “The Moment After” and its sequel “The Moment After 2: The Awakening”, both of which were acquired by Sony Pictures. Bobby then produced “Mercy Streets” starring Oscar nominated Eric Roberts and again worked with Roberts in “Six: The Mark Unleashed”, which also starred Stephen Baldwin and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Both films were acquired for distribution by Sony Pictures. He subsequently executive produced for Ralph Winter on the adaptation of Frank Peretti's best-selling novel “The Visitation” distributed by 20th Century Fox. And he has also produced “The Lost Medallion”, “The Redemption of Henry Myers”, and “Hoovey”.

Bobby’s most notable film was based on the novel by New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury: “Like Dandelion Dust”, which starred Oscar winner Mira Sorvino and Emmy award winner Barry Pepper, and was released by Twentieth Century Fox after winning more than 30 international film festival awards.

In 1999, Bobby founded ChristianCinema.com, which is now the largest selection of faith-affirming and family-approved movies online, and the largest independent retailer of faith-based movies in the U.S.
