(Christian Post) Two filmmaking organizations supporting Christians interested in impacting culture through their work in movies announced Tuesday that an award of up to $1 million will be given toward producing a feature-length film to the winner of this year’s 168 Film Project contest.

“Between 168 Film and EchoLight, we are going to make a great film,” 168 Film founder and director John David Ware told The Christian Post before the official announcement by EchoLight Studios on Tuesday.

“This is a great leap for the producers of the short films in our contest,” said Ware. “They move up to making feature-length films, and this is a great encouragement for them to continue to excel.”
