Who are we?
Founded in 2005, the Mobile Film Festival is an annual, international Festival of short-length movies, based on a simple principle: “1 Mobile, 1 Minute, 1 Film.”
The aim: discover and support young filmmaking talents from around the world and help them become tomorrow’s directors.
For 17 years, the Mobile Film Festival has championed the democratization of filmmaking by zeroing in on storytelling — and not big-budget productions. That is why shooting films on mobile phones, limiting film length to 1 minute, and free registration puts all filmmakers on equal footing, no matter their economic status.
Digital has been the DNA of the Mobile Film Festival since its inception, whose creative and brief format allows for distribution on all screens. In its five previous editions, the Mobile Film Festival has received 5,721 films from 151 countries, achieved an audience of over 134 million views, and supported young creators with a total of €310,000 ($370.000) in production grants.
