Our Mission

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! All ages welcome.

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...
