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. 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.
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...

"Simply the best. Festival Director Susy goes above and beyond to make filmmakers feel special and valued. Highly recommend this film festival. Attended the weekend long festival in April in San Diego which included screenings, workshops/lectures and a red carpet award ceremony. Will forever remember the experience and taking home third place for my film 'The Actor', many thanks!" - Narelle Nash, Attended IMFF 2018 from Australia
“Amazing film festival. Excellent communication in the lead-up. If you're lucky enough to attend, organizer Susy Botello will go out of her way to make sure you have the best film festival experience you could ever expect. Features include great workshops, taking part in filmmaker Q&As, and ample networking opportunities. Susy is a true champion of the smartphone filmmaking community. Don't hesitate to enter!” - Brian Hennings, Attended IMFF 2017 & 2018 from Australia
“This is the best film festival I ever attended in person.
Film makers are well treated.
Susy is a great human being.
Everyone are super friendly.
I had a blast attending the film festival screening and award functions.
RED CARPET treatment of filmmakers is a grand finale!” - Prakash Natarajan, Attended IMFF 2015 & 2018 from Texas
