You can contact us if you'd like to get involved. We still have room for you to join a group of global innovators collaborating on mobile film. We are much more than a mobile film festival!
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.
