The Portable Film Festival is an international festival of short film and user created content. It works in the same way as other film festivals the only difference – it’s delivered completely online and distributed through portable video devices such as iPods, mobile phones and laptops. As such, we promote the free movement of content from digital and analogue spaces to offline.
As a cultural movement, the Portable Film Festival represents the growing democratization of filmmaking and viewing processes around the world. Today anyone can be a filmmaker or a film critic regardless of their background. They just need a fancy mobile phone or a broadband connection and the rest is in their hands.
Everything in our programme is curated, free and portable thanks to our loyal community of film and mediamakers who submit their work to us from around the world. If you missed out this year, send us an email and look out for our next call for entries period, beginning March 1 2008.
