THE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL TEAMS UP
WITH EDINBURGH COLLEGE OF ART AND
THE MOBILE FILM FESTIVAL
What is the Mobile Film Festival?
The Mobile Film Festival was founded in 2005 by Bruno Smadja. It is based on the principle “One mobile, One minute, One film”. The initiative has opened up opportunities to budding filmmakers who have talent, ingenuity and a smartphone. Bruno Smadja said: “Smartphones are easily accessible by young filmmakers today, anywhere in the world, and with impressive filming quality. And the use of one same affordable technology by all participants gives the event its egalitarian and inclusive characteristic. The emotions these shorts manage to convey in only one minute is incredible.”
By giving the floor to filmmakers from all geographic and cultural backgrounds, the MFF presents a variety of strong and committed films. Every year, the MFF awards its prize winners with grants (production and writing aids). Since 2015, more than 3,321 films from 116 countries have been submitted to the Mobile Film Festival. It has thus achieved an audience of 65 million views and awarded €183,000 of grants to the winners.
Students on the Illustration Course at ECA were asked to produce a film poster for a selection of 28 MFF one-minute shorts.
Audience Prize and Jury Prize
Each poster will be entered in an Audience Prize draw.
Every film poster together with its associated MFF short and a personal statement from each of the artists can viewed online.
