The International Mobile Motion Film Festival is a brand new film festival based in Zurich, Switzerland screening work shot on smartphones, tablets and GoPro cameras.

We have great pleasure in publishing all the Winning films of the 2017 festival below The next festival will take place in May 2018 and submissions for it will be open in October 2017.

As you all know we have a dedicated Mobile Movies column here at TheAppWhisperer.com and within that we have a Flickr Group that allows all of our viewers to participate and submit their movies. To find that, please go here. We have some great videos there, please keep them coming so we can feature them in our forthcoming Showcase!

Giulia Baita expressed “The MoMo Festival, #momofilmfest Mobile Motion Film Festival is an important event for mobile cinema and TheAppWhisperer has followed it since it started. 

This year between May 27-28 the third edition took place in Zurich with great success. Mobile cinema is now a consolidated reality around the world. The ability to shoot a video with a smartphone has revolutionized cinematography and this has made it accessible to the many,  something that was previously just for professional filmmakers. 

In 2015, there were about 1.91 billion smartphones in use around the world. We do not know how many were used to create video content, but probably many. This inspired some enthusiasts filmakers to organize a Festival. The first Mobile Motion Film Festival was in 2015. 

During the past three years, the Festival has grown thanks to the passion and enthusiasm of Andrea Holle and her staff. TheAppWhisperer last year watched the live streaming festival and shared some posts involving dozens of mobile filmmakers within Mobile Movies . 

Mobile cinema has opened up borders to all fans of cinema or short film and today it involves many areas of our lives such as journalism, documentaries, experimental films and stories”.

Fabulous Film at Sundance Film Festival Shot using iPhone 5s and FiLMiC Pro App

This is fabulous and is exactly why we promote mobile movies within our dedicated Column on TheAppWhisperer, edited by Donna Donato.

The Sundance Film Festival is known for showcasing more experimental films, but none more so than transgender prostitute movie Tangerine, shot almost entirely with the iPhone 5S.

Sean Baker’s comedy drama follows a trans woman on a Christmas Eve hunt for the Hollywood pimp who left her heartbroken. But while the film itself is surprising and fascinating, so are the means with which it was made.

Although many amateur films have used iPhone cameras, Tangerine is believed to be the first Sundance movie shot in full with an Apple product.

Baker decided to use iPhones to keep the indie film’s budget down and, by his reports, filming was “surprisingly easy”.

Actor James Ransone, who plays pimp Chester, was hesitant at first “out of pride”. “I’m like, Jesus Christ, man, I was on The Wire. I’ve ended up in in iPhone movies!” he told The Verge.

“Yes you can make a beautiful-looking film on a shoestring budget but you have to know 100 years worth of filmmaking.”

The crew used the Filmic Pro app to make Tangerine. A Steadicam help stabilise the phones and limit shaking, while anamorphic adapter lenses were attached to the cameras for a “cinematic” look.
