Your Film, A Feature of Excellence
The final extended deadline to submit a feature narrative film is December 24 and it's the film festival you don't want to miss!
Our feature film competition was announced in 2016 and our call for feature films raised the bar for smartphone filmmakers around the world.
We gave many of you an opportunity to get into a mobile film festival instead of trying to get your feature film accepted in traditional film festivals. Why? Because we experienced first hand what a person with a dream to make movies could do with a cell phone.
Did we say cell phone? We sure did!
In 2009, there were no HD cameras on mobile phones. In 2009, the iPhone 4 had not even come out of the closet! We know a thing or two about our industry. By ‘our,’ we mean you and us. Because this festival has been standing up for you since the Spring of 2009.
A few years ago, after many disappointed filmmakers missed our deadlines, we finally decided to extend our submissions. But we can only go so far because we need to process each submission and make selections as we program and get the film festival in order.
In our competition, we select only three films to compete. Those three films will screen during the festival to our festival audience. One feature film will be awarded the Best Feature Film Award from our exclusive judging panel for only this competition.
The feature film category is all narrative. That means we receive less films than other film festivals, but that benefits you the most. We’re not overwhelmed reviewing each film. Each film is a delicacy for us. Your baby is in good hands. Each film is reviewed by our founder first. Susy Botello has your back. She is your biggest advocate in the mobile film industry.
We watch your film from beginning to end. Your film is a work of art.
You put your heart and soul into each scene. Every element. Each edit decision. Every delicate magical touch from your heart into a masterpiece. We are honored and proud to share your work with our audience in San Diego and around the world.
So enough about our behind-the-scenes treatment of your films and let’s go!
Get your feature films into the festival before the December 24 extended deadline at midnight (PST).
All the shorts are due before the January 13 extended deadline.
Don’t miss out on being a part of the 13th edition of the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego.
Mark the dates: April 26-28, 2024.
Be sure to make arrangements to be present to celebrate you and your film, make new friends in the industry, participate in Q & A’s and more, so much more!
If you don’t have a film, the festival is open to the public. That means you can come and participate!
Participate unlike any traditional film festival you’ve ever attended because you too have a smartphone, and you know our slogan right? Be inspired.
The red carpet is in your pocket™
