168 Film Festival runs August 20th - 21st, tickets available online

The 14th Annual 168 Film Festival - a faith-based exhibition featuring short films created in just one week or 168 hours - will be held in Los Angeles on Sat. - Sun., August 20th - 21st at Regal Cinemas at LA Live, home to many top Hollywood premieres.

According to Founder and President John David Ware, "Our filmmakers draft a script from a verse in a very short time. We give actors and filmmakers the chance to practice their craft under pressure and to get noticed by one of the many casting agents and production companies that attend the fest."

Festival Director Stephanie Weisman has confirmed appearances by M.C. Bill Farmer (the voice of Disney’s Goofy and Pluto), Carl Gilliard (Inception), Denise Grayson (The Social Network), Michole Briana White (25th Hour, Faster, and Courage Under Fire) and Dey Young (Unbridled, The Running Man, Pretty Woman, and Spaceballs).

168 partner the Salvation Army is helping to provide a free Kids Screening and Kids Red Carpet (Aug. 20, 10am-12noon) open to hundreds of underprivileged kids and their families.

The 168 Panel Discussion entitled, "Profession of Faith: Working in the Media" gives an industry insider's look at the faith genre. It takes place Sun, Aug 21, 1:30 - 2:45pm, featuring Rick Bonn, Head of Development & Acquisitions at Pure Flix Entertainment and Dave Alan Johnson, Writer/Producer "Vanished" (Left Behind Reboot).
