If you have leveled up your smartphone and are ready for a film/video project, you may want to have your movie showing on the big screen. Although it is a long shot to being accepted at Sundance Film Festival, like Tangerine was, there are a few “Smartphone Film Festivals” you may want to check out.
iPhone Film Festival
This is a popular festival in the US. Although the name indicates it is about iPhone videos, the majority of the videos are shot on Android smartphones. The festival is designed for artists to showcase their talent.
Toronto Smartphone Film Festival (TSFF)
This is probably the most popular festival focused on smartphone videos. It is a great resource for amateur filmmakers and is very affordable to join. The 2018 submission is closed.
Mobile Film Festival (MFF)
This French festival is a huge celebration online. It is completely international and promotes filmmakers around the world.
