The Disposable Film Festival 2012 kicks off in San Francisco on 22 March with a load of cool events and a quirky gathering (it’s San Fran after all) of avant-garde film-makers.

In addition to screenings of films made on everything from mobile phones to webcams, this year’s festival boasts panel discussions and workshops with topics such as knowing your music/video licensing rights and social action and disposable film-making.

There will also be a competitive shorts programme, guest speakers, multimedia performances and plenty of after parties. A “Geek” event will also showcase the latest and greatest gadgets, accessories, sites and apps for the disposablefilm-maker.

If you are in the Bay area and are a teenager or perhaps parent/guardian of a teenager, look out for the Mobile Filmmaking: Teen Workshop in Partnership with TILT, where you can learn the ins and outs of producing media using mobile devices. This workshop is for ages 13 to 20, and it’s Free! Reserve a space here.

There is also a ’A Filmmaker Spotlight’ session with iPhone animator Sascha Ciezata, which is also free and takes place on Saturday 24 March at 4pm.

“The number and quality of entries this year surpassed anything we’ve seen before,” said festival co-founder and director Carlton Evans. “People across the globe are finding themselves empowered through new inexpensive video technologies. And they’re using them to tell their stories.”

Disposable kicks off in San Francisco every March before traveling to cities throughout the  United  States, with a few international visits thrown in, including Cambridge in the UK this September.
