Get your film in! deadline for 2014 is 1 October

Organisers of the ultra-hip and cool DFF say prizes for 2014 ‘will be bigger  than ever’, but we love the premier mobile film festival all the same


The Disposable Film Festival (DFF) is still accepting submissions for its 2014 event, which is held around March in San Francisco.

Established in 2007, the DFF is one of the oldest, and  most prestigious mobile film festivals and will premiere winning entries at the city’s Castro Theater in a weekend-long celebration of ‘disposable media’.

Criteria for entry is as follows:  Acceptable devices include anything that you might have on you: cell phones, point and shoot cameras, DSLRs, webcams, screen capture software, Flip video cams, ‘and the like’.

“We love when filmmakers get creative with their equipment,” say organisers.

Submissions are $5 a pop and must be under 10 minutes. The deadline is 1 October 2013.

Selections will be equally judged on the inventive and experimental use of the media as well as the content of the film, and organisers say prizes for the 2014 festival are ‘bigger and better than ever!’

Vimeo staff writer Daniel Hayek says: “We’ve all seen the world of creativity changed by technology landing in the hands of the enthusiastic smart-phoned every person, and having attended the DFF a number of times, I can attest to its awesomeness. It’s a singular blend of boisterous screenings, educational workshops, and cerebellum-poking panel discussions.”

We couldn’t agree more. The DFF is definitely one of the highlights of the mobile film festival year – and it’s also held in our second favourite city – after London –  so get your creativity on!
