’Up in the Air’ Wins 168 Project Honors

The 168 Project tasks filmmakers and their crews to make short films during a one-week window. Topics are based on Bible verses drawn at random by producers based on a broad theme. This year’s theme was “Family Business,” opening the door to a myriad of topics relating to families.

“Up in the Air” won Best Film and Best Scriptural Integration on the part of director Wes Llewellyn. It won a total of six awards during the festival.
