    Tickets are still available for the Saturday's screenings of the 168 Hour Film Festival.

    Unlike most Hollywood projects -- which budget serious time for locations, editing, actor tantrums, etc. -- these filmmakers only had 168 hours to complete their movies.

    Each team's 11-minute film is based on a Bible verse, which is sent out at the start of the pre-production week.

    Tickets for Saturday's all-day event are $25 a piece. When organizers say, "all day," they mean it. The day runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., which includes plenty of screenings and the award ceremony.

    Moviegoers can buy tickets at the Alex Theatre box office, online or via phone at 818-243-2539. The theatre is located at 216 North Brand Blvd. in Glendale.
