The 168 Film Festival has become one of the nation’s premier faith-based film festivals with its unique aim to “illuminate the Word of God through short film.” Their unusual competition format challenges creativity by forcing teams to film and edit an 11-minute movie WITHIN 168 HOURS (1 week.)
Nine Years of Filmmaking with a Purpose
As if creating a film in 168 hours wasn’t hard enough, each film must be based upon a Bible verse… a randomly assigned Bible verse. The result is not only great experience in filmmaking and team-building for the participants, but an uplifting experience for audiences as well.
Ralph Winter, Producer of WOLVERINE, and COOL IT, explains, “I love what you guys are doing. 168 is an incredible opportunity. This festival is an inspiration.”
Yesterday, 168 founder John David Ware, told me he believes that he the 2011 festival will be “our finest year yet. Our filmmakers have outdone themselves and attracted some excellent talent too, like Erik Estrada and Denise Grayson from THE SOCIAL NETWORK.”
