International Filmmaking/Screenwriting Competitions

168 Film Project

This is our signature speed filmmaking competition. Speed Film teams have 168 hours (7x24) to shoot and edit a short film based on a theme and a Bible verse (pre-production lasts 10 days). "Non-Speed" categories can begin much earlier. Tens of thousands of filmmakers have completed over 1,000 films since 2003. Speed films are produced over US Memorial Day Weekend (late May).

Write of Passage

In this annual October contest, writers have 168 hours to create a 12-page screenplay based on a scripture. WP uses “Development Executives,” who mentor writers and ultimately send the best work to the finals, to be judged by Hollywood professionals. Many of these great short stories are produced for the 168 Film Festival's Write of Passage Spotlight.
