9th Annual 168 Film Festival Begins Tonight
In honor of tonight’s opening of the 168 Film Festival I wanted to share a clip from a past festival winner that struck me as eerily relevant to the current controversy swirling around love, hell, and Rob Bell (not necessarily in that order.)
As my family was going through some videos of past winners, we found “Love is Good,” winner of the 2009 festival honors for “Best Comedy” and “Audience Favorite.” We laughed hysterically as we watched one particular song in the film. It looked like SNL had written a parody of the current Rob Bell debate. …Uh, but they weren’t, ‘cuz, like, the film is from 2009. Which somehow made it even funnier.
I was able to program the clip to start at the beginning of the song (1:02), but I wasn’t tech savvy enough to stop it at the end (2:55). Feel free to watch the entire video, but I thought this first song was just pitch-perfect. 
In just 1:53 seconds the clip demonstrates both the power of filmmaking in theological debate and the mission of the 168 Film Festival.
