Hi there! I’m Susy Botello, founder and director of the International Mobile Film Festival, I host the SBP Podcast and run workshops on mobile filmmaking and storytelling.
You can learn a bit about me here with some history. But to put it in a nutshell…well, I’m passionate about my work as an advocate for you. I care about you, and our community of storytellers and filmmakers.
Over time my passion, instead of dwindling, has grown stronger than ever. Since the Spring of 2009 when I launched our film festival, I’ve been advocating for mobile filmmakers.
