“Xs in the Sky Films” is a film company that specializes in creating enticing feature film documentaries. We film, write, direct and edit all our material, fully capable of covering all the aspects of the movie making process. Founded in 2010 by screenwriter and filmmaker Frank Xavier Panico, “Xs in the Sky Films” proudly embraces faith based movies. After welcoming two exceptional musical artist from Hollywood California, Betty Navas and Steve Doodigian, the company is now able to provide mind blowing soundtrack for their projects. 

This company is unashamed of God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Mr.Panico became absolutely fed up with the onslaught of films that portray Christians as corny mindless fanatical nerds who were the subject of ridicule and lame jokes. Instead of sending endless emails or letters of complaint to these producers and their companies, he decided to combat the Christian bashing in his own way, fighting fire with fire. By releasing films that reveal the truth about the billions of individuals who follow Jesus Christ, he intends to destroy the negative stereotype that has been unfairly thrust upon them. In a recent interview Mr. Panico states, “The closer one draws to God the more beautiful, unique and perceptive one becomes”. Although Xs in the Sky Films focuses on faith based films, they are open to other morally correct productions as well.  We have been blessed and found distribution for our films with Christian Cinema, Amazon Plus, Amazon Prime, Half Ticket TV and Cloud Walker, but we are still open to other distribution outlets.

Born and raised in Queens New York, Frank Panico was exposed to an array of Arts and Cultures that shaped and molded his already inquisitive mind fueled by a fervent imagination. Because of those experiences, a well-rounded individual emerged with exceptional interpersonal skills, accompanied by a desire to explore the world through film.

At the age of 24, Frank moved to Hollywood California to pursue a career in the Film Industry. It was there that Frank studied under the tutelage of Michel C. Conley, a member of the “California Scholastic Press,” and became skilled in the art of Feature Film Screenplay-writing. Eventually, he obtained a position as Assistant to Gary D. Roberts, Executive Vice President of 20th Century Fox Films Legal Group.

Frank relocated to Florida in 2005, and currently writes, directs, and produces his own original material. In 2010, Panico and his production company, “Xs in the Sky Films,” received rave reviews and recognition from “The Stuart News” and “Vero’s Voice” for his outstanding works.

His first film, “Lambs Among Wolves” was picked up and aired on “The Walk TV” and received a nomination at “The Treasure Coast International Film Festival.” Panico’s second film, “A Different Kind of Church” garnered distribution on “Amazon Prime” and “Christian Cinema.”

While working for “Light of the World Charities” in Palm City, Panico completed his third film, “Moved with Compassion.” His following documentary film, “3000 a Day” received a nomination and was aired on “NRB.” Frank’s fifth award winning film, “My Friend Raymond” was nominated for two awards at “The International Christian Film Festival” in the categories of “Most Creative Documentary” and “Most Inspiring Documentary” and won an award for the “Most Inspirational film,” which lead the film to be accepted for distribution on Pure Flix. “My Friend Raymond” also won awards for “Best Local Film” and “Most Inspirational Film” at the “Fort Myers Film Festival.” Soon after, the film won “Outstanding Faith based Film” at the FAM Film Festival and “Voters Choice Award” at Cherub Film festival.

Franks sixth documentary entitled, “American Hijack” is a cutting-edge film that boldly reveals the moral decay in America. This thought provoking film is designed to challenge its viewers to realize the importance of the need to welcome God back into our society, and this is how to save the nation before it’s too late.

Currently, Mr. Panico is promoting two of his six Feature Film Screenplays–“Stoneflower” and “Jaws of Justice.”
