Film Daily News: The International Mobile Film Festival: Embracing smartphone creators by Frankie Stein | Jan 23, 2020
Launch of the first streaming platform for mobile films is game changer for emerging industry
The mobile filmmaking panel during the LockDownCon, a virtual conferenece organized by Neal and Jana Hallford of Swords and Circuitry Studios, based in San Diego took place Sunday, June 28, 2020. It was "simulcast" on Facebook and YouTube LIVE Featuring Jed Brophy and Mark Hadlow of "Blue Moon" by Stef Harris and "The Hobbit" by Peter Jackson.
In 2009, we launched the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego as a platform for all humans around the world. It was soon after launching, in the same year, that the idea of "Community Stories" was conceived.
All humans are invited to make a movie with mobile phone cameras for the International Mobile Film Festival. Our challenge to make films begins at age...zero. That's right. We refuse to put an age limit on our film festival criteria. We have invited kids and teens to take part in our film festival since the beginning of time. Okay since the beginning of "our" time in 2009, at least. We'd like to share a few stories about what makes our Youth Film Category special.
