Support Mobile Filmmakers
We've worked very hard to create and design the International Mobile Film Festival and our exclusive podcast that gives a voice to mobile filmmakers.
Promoting Art, Technology & Education
S. Botello Productions™ is forming a mobile film resource center for the world to access. A strong emphasis is on connecting the world of filmmaking to mobile filmmakers around the globe via new technological advances with mobile phone cameras.
The purpose of our mobile film festival is not only to create interest and spark creativity in people of all ages with limited income or resources but to actually inspire creative filmmakers to live to their potential and realize the opportunity to fulfill their dream. The International Mobil Film Festival™ is for everyone around the world! All ages welcome. Our mission is our passion and we are sharing mobile filmmaking internationally with our collaborators, sponsors and partners.
Imagine that you are on the red carpet in our film festival with a famous director like Steven Spielberg who shot a film with a mobile phone as well. We provide a venue for all humans to make a mobile film regardless of experience. This is an equal arena for all filmmakers all around the world, famous and not so famous alike. The competition is on! This is your time to shine on the red carpet! All things being equal...

"IMFF was my first film festival. Susy Botello is a gracious host and responds to questions quickly. The IMFF team was wonderful! I highly recommend this event!!!!"
Lillian Carter | IMFF 2021
"Recommended festival. One of the coolest! and I am grateful to have been included in the 10th edition, a large community of mobile filmmakers that Susy and her crew have been following for several years."
Sigfrido Giammona | IMFF 2021
"I had a wonderful experience dealing with Susy and the IMFF. From start to finish the communication was excellent. I felt like my film was in good hands, and the support was amazing. This year's festival was forced to be online, but I have no doubt the hospitality and networking would have been top-notch had I been able to attend in person in San Diego. Highly recommend joining this family of mobile filmmakers."
Ian Leer, UK | IMFF 2020 Virtual
"A great festival to be a part of! The team is great at communicating and providing opportunities for the filmmakers to share and discuss their film, especially shooting on mobile devices. The line up this year was fantastic, and though we were not able to attend a live event (because of the pandemic) we look forward to meeting everyone in person in future years. If you're a filmmaker who made your movie with a mobile device, this festival is a must!"
