Starfish Stories 

Film & Media for Your Family

Time is scarce and family time together is priceless.

We offer meaningful, compelling films and media about families who come together and stay together. Stories that speak to what it really means to be a “forever family”, loving each other and making the world a better place.

Be inspired with “starfish stories” and consider sharing an inspiring film with your family or your church centered around adoption and foster care. 

Marc & Ceitci

Marc Harper, Founder and Chief Star Thrower

Marc has been developing large audiences for faith & family films for 30 years. What began as showing movie clips in youth group has become grass roots specialization to send millions of families to inspiring movies worldwide, reaching 200 nations. In 2019, inspired by the film MULLY, he decided to use all of his experience and connections to focus on media to help bring families together and stay together. The simple goal is to inspire more forever families through foster care and adoption. After meeting his wife Ceitci and her screenwriting friend (who himself was an adoptive father) they started Starfish Stories.
