What follows is 10 days of pre-production work and one week of shooting and editing (168 hours) to submit a finished film on the theme for the year influenced by the contestant's individual Bible verse. Registration is open now at 168film.com and closes May 11.
"It's an honor to partner with the 168 Film Project, especially because of our mutual goal to illuminate the word of God through film," said Christopher Morrow, chief global strategist at EchoLight Studios.
"These awards build on EchoLight's commitment to not only distribute quality faith and family films but to encourage excellence among the coming generation of filmmakers," said EchoLight President Bobby Downes.
Dallas-based EchoLight is a full-service film production and distribution studio. In addition to the awards supporting new creators, EchoLight distributes the works of established filmmakers in the faith and family genre and produces original works (THE REDEMPTION OF Henry Myers, starring FIREPROOF's Erin Bethea, releases next year).
