[Atlanta, GA, July 4, 2020] – ICFF, the largest national Christian film festival in the country and one of the largest internationally, awarded actor, author, director, producer and speaker Cameron Arnett the Actor of the Year Award for 2020.
The International Christian Film and Music Festival garners over 5,000 people yearly and awards films and filmmakers from around the world. Past honorees and presenters include Kirk Cameron, Lou Gossett Jr., Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Benjamin A. Onyango, and T.C. Stallings.
Cameron's trek began in the 1980's with roles in Star Trek, Dougie Howser, China Beach and Miami Vice to name a few. At the height of his career, Cameron makes a decision that not many would make. He left Hollywood to follow his personal convictions.

Director and producer Alex Kendrick had the following to say regarding Cameron's performance, “In every film we've done there's always a character that will become the favorite character of the movie. In Overcomer, it's Thomas Hill played by Cameron Arnett. Cameron played that role so well. It is so difficult not to love this character, not to root for him.”
The film has now been seen in 111 countries and was the #1 family film for 2019.
