What's New for 168 in 2014?
Here's what's new for the 168 Film Project Competition:
On the set of "Blood" 2013
All deadlines for competition entry, production and submission are the same for all teams worldwide. Note for International Teams: your deadline has moved from what was previously published.
Production start and turn-in times will be entirely in PACIFIC TIME, so please adjust your clocks.
We have greatly improved the new Producer Dashboard, which will lead you step-by-step through the submission process.
To be eligible for awards, all films must begin uploading onto our Web portal by the submission deadline. Competitors will also have a week to submit a screening copy for best possible look and sound at the 168 Film Festival.
KidVids: At 168 we highly value children. If we lose a generation, we lose vital assets in society. So an increase the quality and quantity of kids films is an investment in our future. We are pleased to announce this new Film Entry Type.
KidVids are NOT speed films, so writing and production may begin immediately on these 5-minute or less films (completed paperwork and assigned verse required). These are simpler films. They should be fun and instructive of principles found in the assigned verse. Before production, the producer must specify age range of the target audience, i.e. 3-5 year-olds - “G” rated, 6-10 year-olds - “G or PG” (The spirit of these film ratings is a return to the very conservative standards of 1950's media. This will be strictly enforced).
KidVids turn-in deadline is the same as all other films. You needn’t put kids on screen, but it’s a good idea. We will have a dedicated KidVid representative to assist you in making your film great. KidVids compete in a separate category.
Prizes for 2014: $20,000 in Cash and Prizes to be announced. Best Write of Passage Spotlight Film $500, Best KidVid $500, Best Evangelista $500.
