San Diego's Smartphone Film Festival presents 11th Edition

SAN DIEGO - Aug. 16, 2021 - PRLog -- S. Botello Productions™ will present the 11th edition of the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego.

IMFF is the first film festival in the world to encourage making movies with phones in a traditional live in-person film festival event that only accepts films shot with smartphones.

Submissions for Features Films and Short Films now open. Sponsors FilmConvert, Moondog Labs, and Filmic Pro are providing prizes. Trophies are sponsored by Engraving Pros.

IMFF is a global pioneer and unique platform launched in 2009 by Susy Botello in San Diego. The festival attracts international filmmakers to San Diego every year to screen their films and celebrate the smartphone filmmaking movement.

Attendees will meet and discuss making movies directly with filmmakers, watch films, learn how to make their own films using their smartphone cameras.

All short films range between 1 and 5 minutes each with the exception of three narrative feature films.

The Awards will be presented Sunday, May 1st. Attendees of all ages leave the festival inspired to make movies with their own smartphones.

IMFF hosts a very unique red carpet show titled the "Red Carpet Extravaganza" with sponsors Star Wars Steampunk Universe cosplay charity group, including Dude Vader. Members of the group, in costume, escort each participating filmmaker on the red carpet as spectators cheer them. This red carpet moment goes above and beyond posing for photographers!


"I absolutely loved this festival! Susy Botello does an incredible job hosting and making the festival much more than a film showing. It was inspiring to meet the other filmmakers, presenters, and sponsors and to share in our love for making mobile films." Alexandra Guillossou, Missouri.
