The 168 Film Project is a faith-based, 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.
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.
To do well in 168, artists must make compelling entertainment. Pop culture needn’t be at odds with faith-based, faith-friendly or values focused entertainment. We value all three. See examples here. Check out the Write of Passage Screenwriting Competition. For info Click 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 for film pre-production). Artistic awards and life-changing challenges await. Join the email list, Facebook and Twitter Pages and connect!
