The SmartFone Flick Fest, also known as SF3, is a film festival for those who create short films on their smartphone or tablet.
The festival is open to filmmakers of all ages and is aimed at getting people involved in filmmaking at a grass-roots level, without spending thousands on expensive professional equipment.
Each year, the SmartFone Flick Fest gathers up the many entries and judges the top entries which will be screened at the final gala awards held at the Chauvel Cinema in Paddington. Winners will share a split of over $10,000 in prizes and the top ten films will be screened online to the general public.
If you are interested in submitting your short film to the SmartFone Flick Fest, films must be no longer than 6 minutes and 30 seconds, the film must be shot on a smartphone or tablet, the film can be in any language (with English subtitles) and there is no age requirement for artist entry. External microphones and tripods are permitted as is lighting. Editing of the film is also permitted and there are some great programs available online.
You must pay an entry fee (discounted for students). The film is permitted to have been screened at another festival and you can enter as many films as you like.
So get creative and get involved in the SmartFone Flick Fest. Spectators are welcome to come and view the finished products at the gala awards, and the top films will be available for streaming online.
