This is our original Speed Film contest, where short narratives are made worldwide from ANY location, based on scripture related to the announced theme. Teams take ten days for pre-production (writing, casting, locations and schedules). No writing is allowed before verse assignment, where a verse from the Bible is randomly chosen that becomes the team's "destiny." Teams synchronize their clocks so that they are all producing at exactly the same time globally.
Signature Speed Films
This is the classification for non-student productions. Signature Speed Films are produced on the schedule published by 168. "Verse Assignment" starts the 10-day pre-production process. Shooting may begin at the appointed time, and 168 hours later (exactly 7 days) the finished film is due. To be award-eligible, films must start uploading before the deadline.
NEW FOR 2024!
PICK YOUR SCHEDULE: Speed Film teams registering early can choose from up to THREE timeframes to make a film in a week. At registration, choose Group 1, Group 2, or Group 3, whichever is most convenient for your team's availability.
PROP AND LINE: In addition to a Bible verse, each Speed Film group will receive a unique PROP specification and LINE of script to include in the film, a throwback to 2004.
