Who are we?

Founded in 2005, the Mobile Film Festival is an international Festival of short-length movies, based on an simple principle: 1 Mobile, 1 Minute, 1 Film.

The aim: discover, support and accompany talents from the whole world to become tomorrow’s directors.

The choice of the mobile phone enables to ban all economic constraints so that anyone may contribute in the same conditions. The use of the same technology by all participants, moreover an accessible material, bestows a democratic and equalitarian aspect to the Festival, at an international scale! In addition, the Festival decrees strong narrative and script writing obligations – tell a story in a minute – with the aim of identifying the most promising young authors and directors.

The Mobile Film Festival is a 100% digital festival, thus aiming at reaching the largest audience. Yet, its short and creative format, as well as the technical quality of the films, enable a broadcasting of the films on all screens: smartphones, computers, TVs, cinema theaters, …

Over the last four years, Mobile Film Festival has held 5 international editions, receiving 4,000 film entries from 132 countries, notching up 78 million views and giving out €229,000 in prizes!

The MFF has also committed to major social issues through two editions in 2015 and 2019 “Act Now on Climate Change” and one edition in 2018 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In 2020, the MFF launched the first Mobile Film Festival Africa, which was open exclusively to filmmakers living in Africa. This first edition is already a success with 497 films submitted from 38 countries on the continent. The Festival will take place in the first half of 2021.
