Gone in 60 seconds! More one-minute epics from the Mobile Film Festival
French Mobile Film Festival shortlists 50 films for this year’s awards with €15,000 prize money up for grabs
OK smartmoviemakers, you know the drill by now, as the Mobile Film Festival in France has been running for nine years and is based on a simple concept: ‘1 Mobile, 1 Minute, 1 Film’.
Submissions for this year’s event have now closed and public voting is taking place online via the festival’s Facebook page.
Organisers say that they received 710 entries for this year’s event from which a shortlist of 50 has been drawn up, and the successful formula has been exported to several other countries including Germany, Morocco and Tahiti.
The grand prize for Best film is €15, 000 ($20,424) to finance a short film produced by the winner to be shown at the 2015 festival.
Other prizes include a Samsung Galaxy Tab and an iPad mini. Winners will be announced after the voting process ends on 6 February 2014 following an awards ceremony in Paris.
A jury will decided the overall winners and this year the president is Amélie and Delicatessen director Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
