40th NW Filmmakers’ Fest Highlights: BIBLE QUIZ

Bible Quiz

In Tacoma, Washington, and all over the country, many church groups participate in an annual competition of memorizing and reciting Bible verses and trivia, all in the hopes of making it to a national competition where the best of the best duel it out. With an approaching National Bible Quiz Championship on the horizon, 17-year-old Mikayla and the other members of her Bible quiz group study and practice with unbeatable dedication. But for Mikayla, it is more than just Bible trivia. Her quiz group is an escape from family troubles, a chance at belonging, and the place where she falls in love with her team captain, JP. A film about dedication and hard work, faith and aspirations, and the trials of growing up. (86 mins.)

Our Festival sponsors and supporters include The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, the James F. & Marion L. Miller Foundation, LAIKA, Art Works, Oregon Cultural Trust, smart center Portland, Wieden + Kennedy, McMenamins, Pro Photo Supply, The Jackson Foundation, Willamette Week, Mission Control, Kind Healthy Snacks, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Honest Tea, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., Funnelbox Production Studios, Koerner Camera Systems, Oregon Film, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, KZME, and Poster Child Events.
