The 168 Film Project is a faith friendly, values-friendly practicum for artists focused on the media. 168 provides a proving ground for filmmakers, writers, actors and all interested in creating stories for popular culture.
On Aug. 10, 2013, the Best Short Filmmaker will win an up to $1 Million (minimum award $250K) feature film production budget! Details here.
More than an international short film competition, "168" asks deep questions. Filmmakers, writers and audiences alike explore scripture as they go. Is it really relevant today? Whether subtle, or bold in message, "168" stories change lives and help to redefine the genre in terms of quality and inspirational message.
Please understand that taking story from scripture does not mean you must make the next Jesus movie. To do well in 168, artists must make compelling entertainment. Pop culture needn’t be at odds with faith-based, faith-friendly or values entertainment. We value all three. See examples here.
Not religious? Not a problem, read this.
Founded in 2003, 168 welcomes artists of secular, Christian and other beliefs, who are willing to take the challenge to produce a short work based on "a Theme, a Verse and a Week" (plus 10 days pre-production for films). Artistic awards and life-changing challenges await you.
