The Dublin Smartphone Film Festival is an international festival dedicated to celebrating work shot on Smartphone and Tablets.
The festival was created with the goal of encouraging filmmakers to share the stories they have captured on mobile devices and to provide smartphone filmmakers with a platform to exhibit these stories to a wider audience.
Submissions are now open for the third Dublin Smartphone Film Festival.
The festival returns for 2020 after two widely successful sold out events. As Irelands only Smartphone Film Festival, the #DUBSMARTFF aims to inspire budding directors as well as celebrate National and International filmmakers using Smartphone’s exclusively to tell their stories.
The festival is accepting submissions now for 2019 from both local and International Filmmakers and are looking for Filmmakers to submit their mobile masterpieces before the submission date closure of Dec 1st 2019.
Categories include best Fiction, Music video, Documentary, Animation, and 360/VR film. All entries should be no longer than 15 minutes in length.
In 2018, they received over 100 submissions from over 24 countries and regions with a screening of the best 26 of the submissions at the event with the moving, 'The Missing Things (Australia)' directed by Jason Van Genderen winning the Grand prize.
After the success of the first two years, the #Dubsmartff team are expecting an even larger number of submissions for year three. The festival programmers are on the lookout for captivating stories that take full advantage of the technology.
The Dublin Smartphone Film Festival will take place in January 2020 with the venue being announced in the coming weeks. The festival is open for submissions for 2020 with a submission fee of $12 dollars.
