During a live event like the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego, attendees come and leave when it’s over. During this year’s IMFF 2020 (due to the Corona COVID-19 Virus) the film festival turned into a virtual event within weeks to keep it on schedule.
The end result though, is that the festival is still interacting with mobile filmmakers and attendees, online. With an internet connection, you can go to YouTube and watch the films (with the exception of one feature film).
You can also listen to podcasts through the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking (ongoing) with some of the filmmakers on the web, or through free podcast apps on your phone.
You can read about the filmmakers with the online publication, Smartphone Filmmaking.
Below are some highlights of the content you can access so far, come back for more as more is added through the coming weeks.
MFTV is a Mobile Film Network Distribution Channel: If you are a shooting your films and videos with your smartphone, we would like to include you in our network.
