IMFF 2024 Awards

We wish to thank everyone who submitted films to the 13th edition of the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego, California.

Although some filmmakers could not attend in person, we disclosed all the awards during the awards ceremony Sunday evening. The winners are listed below. They will be added to the awards page and remain there.

We’ll be sharing photos and stories in the coming days and weeks. We will work with our photographer to finalize official festival photos of the event to share with you.

We’ll also be discussing the event in the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking, hosted by festival founder Susy Botello.

…and now, the moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived. It is with great pleasure and honor, that we announce all the awardees. Congratulations to all of you! We wish we could have celebrated you in person, but nonetheless it was an honor to include you in our celebration of mobile filmmaking in San Diego with indie filmmakers like yourselves.
