Mobile Phone Film Festival Contest

Calling all filmmakers, smartphone users, and digital creatives!

The smartphone has become our pencil, our paintbrush, a tool with which all participants can express their talent on a digital canvas. In that spirit, Crystal Bridges is hosting a Mobile Phone Film Festival, and we want YOU to be part of it!

Take on the challenge to create a short film on your smartphone based on the unique idea of 1 mobile, 1 minute, 1 film.

Submit your short film (maximum of 4 minutes) to be screened at the museum. All genres welcome from documentary, experimental, animation, music video, and more. Selected applicants will be invited to join us for a post-filmmaker discussion and reception at the festival.

Deadline to apply is December 2, 2019.

If your film is selected, you’ll be notified by December 2 and invited to attend the public screening at Crystal Bridges on December 5, 2019. Following the screening, you’ll participate in a discussion with the audience.

Please note that we’ll be screening the films directly from the weblink provided, so a high resolution file is encouraged.
