Word Entertainment-a leading Christian entertainment company offering an array of artist services including recorded music, publishing, merchandising, booking and marketing-today announced that it has partnered with international feature film production and distribution company Curb Entertainment, to distribute Word Entertainment's faith-based films outside of the US.
