For 14 years, the Mobile Film Festival has been defending the values of equality and discovery, excluding economic obstacles thanks to the use of the mobile as well as the free inscription to participate to the festival, while adding value to the filmmakers’ creativity, who have one minute maximum to tell a story.

A festival which is 100% digital, allows a diffusion on all kinds of screens: mobile, tablet, computer, TV, and cinema. During the last edition, the Mobile Film Festival received more than 1000 films from 88 countries and reached 17 million viewers.

The aim of the Mobile Film Festival is to reveal and support tomorrow’s talents by helping them to become more professional. This year, the Mobile Film Festival will offer 66.000 € of creation grants. Call for entries is open until October 11, 2018.
