Building your network and acquiring valuable skills through our programs will help your quest in all media. Artistic awards and life changing challenges await!

168 is funded by donors and sponsors. Please join us and give generously.



International Short Film Competitions

168 Film Project

Our signature speed filmmaking competition. 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). Tens of thousands of filmmakers have competed since 2003.


Write of Passage

In this 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. FIlmmakers may produce these stories for the 168 Film Festival.
