ABOUT “XS IN THE SKY FILMS”
“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 artists from Hollywood California, Betty Navas, and Steve Doodigian, the company is now able to provide mind blowing soundtrack for their projects.
Although Xs in the Sky Films focuses on faith-based films, they are open to other morally correct productions as well. We have found distribution for our films with EWTN, Pureflix, Right Side Broadcasting Network, Christian Cinema, Amazon Plus, Amazon Prime, Half Ticket TV, NewsMax, Salem Now, Epoch TV and Cloud Walker, but we are still open to other distribution outlets.
FRANK X. PANICO
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Frank X. Panico was exposed to a diverse array of arts and cultures that helped to shape his naturally inquisitive mind and creative imagination. At age twenty-four, spurred on by that same creative imagination, Frank moved to Hollywood, California to pursue a career in the Film Industry.
In Hollywood, Mr. Panico studied under the tutelage of Michel C. Conley, a member of the California Scholastic Press. He became skilled in the art of Feature Film Screenplay Writing which helped him to earn a position as Assistant to Gary D. Roberts, Executive Vice President of 20th Century Fox Films Legal Group.
In 2005, Frank relocated to Florida, where he founded his production company, Xs in the Sky Films.
In 2017 Frank Panico’s powerful biopic, My Friend Raymond was nominated for two awards at the International Christian Film Festival including “Most Creative Documentary” and “Most Inspiring Documentary.” My Friend Raymond, won the award for the “Most Inspirational Documentary,” which led the film to be picked up 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 and “Outstanding Faith-based Film” at the FAM Film Festival and the “Voters’ Choice Award” at the Cherub Film festival.
Currently, Mr. Panico is promoting two of his six Feature Film Screenplays – Stoneflower and Jaws of Justice as well as his four most recent documentaries, Systematic Deception, Trans Wreck, Unabashed and Convicted For Cash.
At the end of the day, filmmaking is all about telling stories, impacting the world and we are just doing our part.
