Deidox Films is a 501(c)(3) non-profit documentary production company creating content from a Christian perspective. Our short documentaries have been used by over 3,000 churches and organizations and they can be viewed on our website or Youtube Channel.

We also produce feature documentaries and our latest film, Free Burma Rangers, will be released in theaters February 26, 2020.

And, if you are wondering, the name Deidox comes from:

  • DEI = latin for God
  • DOX = documentaries


All our projects are made possible by generous donors and organizations. We are always looking for new projects and partners.

Deidox grew out of the collaboration of B. Gudgel and Dave Mahanes, a producer and director team whose first documentary “Dear Francis” – about the fight against HIV/AIDS in the most infected country in the world – aired on Showtime and The Movie Channel. They went on to produce over 250 short documentaries for causes, ministries, and clients like Saddleback Church, International Justice Mission, Azusa Pacific University, and Union Rescue Mission, among others. While traveling the globe for these projects, they were struck by how impactful it was to get a glimpse of faith in the lives of global Christians. So, with the help of friends and their churches they took a leap to start Deidox.

Today, Deidox is a collective of media missionaries that collaborate to tell stories about God’s global work. At this point all of the filmmakers/media missionaries at Deixox are “bi-vocational” and do Deidox documentaries when they can. To quote one of their more feisty film subjects, Ludmila, “it’s an honor.”



We want to get out of the way as much as possible and give credit and glory to the Lord for the stories He allows us to explore and reveal. But, because we’re an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit we need to post a few names to prove we have oversight not only from above but from people. We have an amazing board, made up of people that encourage and support and help keep us on track.
