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.”

The aim of the Mobile Film Festival is to reveal and support tomorrow’s talents by helping them to become more professional.

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.

The Inspiration

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. 
Added to the Audience Prize, three outstanding posters will also be selected by a jury comprised of Bruno Smadja (founder of the Mobile Film Festival), a member of Friends of the Earth and Laurence Païs, Consul General of France in Edinburgh and Glasgow and Director of the Institut français d’Ecosse.
Voting will close on 23 November. Winners will be announced on 25 November.

Every film poster together with its associated MFF short and a personal statement from each of the artists can viewed online.
