Art has progressed dramatically over the years, and while many people enjoy the traditional idea of art and expression, many are eager to use and explore new ways to create art and express themselves through it. Similar to the case of the film industry, there’s a broad audience that enjoys traditional films created with expensive filming equipment and witnesses the cinematic experience. On the other hand, however, emerging artists are breaking the stereotypical roles and coming up with more creative ways to film.
The Rise of Mobile Films
It was only over a few years that mobile devices started featuring advanced camera technologies, and now, all new cellular devices have incredible specifications and camera results. This has paved the way for film students and people genuinely interested in filmmaking to take advantage of the opportunity.
Mobile Film Festivals
As a celebration of creativity and art, Mobile Film Festivals are organized, which provide a platform for creators to share their work with the rest of the world. These festivals are exclusively created for mobile films and artists that work on mobile devices. Not only that, these film festivals give out awards and grants to their participant so that they can further explore their potential when it comes to filmmaking.
Moment Invitational Film Festival
The Moment Invitational Film Festival has been around for quite some time, with the 6th annual Moment Invitational Film Festival for Mobile Creatives launched only recently. The steps to enter are easy, and the incentives are great. The Film Festival has nine categories to choose from. Once that is done, the participant takes their workshop and then streams the live premiere of their film.
