Cinephone 2014 recognises 30 years of art and technology and the first PCs

Well established Spanish smartphone film festival has opened its call out window for 2014

Admissions are open for Cinephone 2014, the 3rd Annual International Smartphone Short Film Festival, which this year is under the banner:  ‘Art & Technology Together Again’.

The Barcelona-based non-profit festival has so far received entries from 14 countries covering a wide variety of genres.

In the exhibit Your Short Film in the World organisers have geo-positioned over 130 short films received by Cinephone to date on a world map.

Organisers told that they believe 2014 is a special year as it is the 30th anniversary of the first personal computer that allowed digital art creation.

“In honour of 1984, our primary imagery for this year’s competition emphasises the importance of the merger of art and technology. Technology has advanced so much over the past 30 years that even a small child using everyday technology is able to generate sophisticated art,” says David Cornado, one of the festival organisers.

“Once again we have the support of the University Studies of Multimedia and Telecommunications of UOC, who have recognised since the first event that Cinephone is a technological, innovative and socially cohesive project.

“This year UOC will be studying ways of collaboration dedicated to development projects and improving open source android apps,” he says.

All films must be shot with smartphones and should not exceed 15 minutes in length. If the primary language is not English, English subtitles are required, but editing with any computer software is permitted.

The call for short film entrants closes 31 August 2014. Participants can send in short films by WeTransfer to Dropbox or email them directly to:

The Festival’s blog is also up and running for updates on Cinephone 2014 and news in general on smartphone filmmaking.
