2014 Declared “The Year of Christian Film”

Four-time Primetime Emmy Award Winner Michael Learned has joined the presenter line-up for the “168 Film Festival,” a red carpet awards show designed as an international celebration of faith in film.

Highlighting the power of story to change culture, the “168 Film Festival” showcases the work of worldwide filmmakers competing for top honors and more than $25,000 in cash and prizes. The event is presented annually by 168 Film, an organization founded in 2003 to train and equip filmmakers in the how-to’s of making God-honoring films.

This year’s festival takes on additional importance as the press declared 2014 as “The Year of Christian Film” following a host of box-office hits that grossed record numbers while dealing with faith-based themes (God’s Not DeadHeaven Is For RealSon of GodNoah).

According to 168 Film Founder and Executive Director John David Ware, “We in the media are in the culture-changing business. If we had ten amazing scripts to sell, I believe we could sell them all in the current climate.”

Learned joins an already all-star line-up; including Nathan Kress (Chicken Little); this year’s Host, comedian Kerri Pomarolli (The Tonight Show, Comedy Central); Vincent Irizarry (All My Children); twice Emmy nominated actor Max Gail (Barney Miller); Writer, Director Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer); Melissa Biggs (Baywatch); Allie McCulloch (Homeland); Kim Estes (NCIS, How I Met Your Mother); Melissa Disney (Superman: Unbound); and Bryan E.
