Mobile Film Festival

13th Edition

deadline:January 9th, 2018

For the 13th time, the Mobile Film Festival is launching its call for submissions, following the same principle, 1 mobile, 1 minute, 1 film , and defending the same values of equality, creativity and discovery. Stripping down all economic constraints with the mobile, promoting creativity by telling a story in 1 minute and discovering new filmmaking talents.
Filmmakers can shoot the film of their choice: sequence take, editing, stop motion, special effects and sound recording can be done outside the mobile. Participants can submit more than one film, and submission is free.
This year, we have the honour of being invited to one of the most prestigious short film festivals in Europe, the Brest European Short Film Festival , for a special retrospective and Q&A, on Friday November 10 2017, to celebrate the launch of our 13th edition.
For this 13th edition, we are delighted to have with us great cinema stars, who will be part of our jury: Patrice Leconte (President of the Jury), Ruben Alves, Anne-Sophie Bion, Stéfi Celma, Amelle Chahbi, Alice David, Lola Dewaere, Pascal Elbé, Céline Kamina.
The French and International Grand Prizes both come with a BNP Paribas €15,000 grant. Partner of the Festival for the 8th consecutive year, BNP Paribas supports the winners in the making of a short film with professional means and the help of a producer during a year. These short films will then be selected in festivals around the globe.
The CNC (French film commission) supports the Mobile Film Festival with two awards: Best Screenplay and Best Director awards, both with a €3,000 writing grant, put towards writer’s residences.
On top of these 4 awards, the Jury delivers the Best Actress and Best Actor awards.
