Dianetics Movie Receives Indie Fest Award of Excellence

Indie Fest recognizes Golden Era Productions’ four-and-a-half hour documentary, How to Use Dianetics, for exceptional achievement in craft and creativity in the category of educational and instructional films.

How to Use Dianetics was honored Wednesday, June 1, with an Indie Fest Award of Excellence for educational and instructional films. The film is a four-and-a-half hour book on film of L. Ron Hubbard’s seminal work, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, the all-time best-selling book on the human mind.

Produced by Golden Era productions, central dissemination center of the Scientology religion, How to Use Dianetics contains more than 10,000 computer-generated special effects graphics.

“The film is a tour de force, graphically illustrating every component of Dianetics. It enables the viewer to see each of the concepts presented in the book,” says Catherine Fraser, Director of Public Affairs for Golden Era Productions. “The step-by-step presentation makes it possible to master every Dianetics principle, one at a time. The film has already been translated into 16 languages, and we ultimately plan to expand this to more than 70 languages in all. Great care was taken to stay true to the book and bring the bestseller to life, making it as realistic as possible, even down to filming a real black panther to illustrate one of the key concepts in the book.”

Judged by highly qualified film industry professionals, the Indie Fest recognizes filmmakers who produce fresh, standout entertainment, animation and compelling documentaries.

“The Indie Fest is an independent, top-tier international film awards competition,” says Thomas Baker, PhD, competition chairperson. “The Indie is not an easy award to win. Entries are received from around the world. The Indie helps set the standard for craft and creativity.”

Golden Era Productions has earned 56 national and international awards for their films, documentaries, public service announcements and websites. For more information about Golden Era Productions and the How to Use Dianetics DVD, visit
