About the 168 Film Project
The 168 Film Project is a unique proving ground for writers and filmmakers. The 168 Film Project's challenge to filmmakers worldwide is to draw a random scripture from the Bible and in just 168 hours (7 days) shoot and edit a short film based on that verse. This unique competition presents many challenges and opportunities to seasoned professionals and aspiring newcomers alike.
We encourage fair treatment of subjects with emphasis on story and subtlety. But most importantly, filmmakers are encouraged to honestly portray the tale inscribed through the foundational scripture.
“168” films uplift and inform the human condition, showing real consequences for actions and reflecting traditional, conservative Biblical values. Therefore, there are some content restrictions, but your task is simple. Create a great story based on a scripture!
If you are up to the challenge of making a film from the best selling book of all time, then we are excited to cheer you on as you develop significant creative, crew and industry relationships.
