For its 15th edition, the Mobile Film Festival (MFF) is proud to announce its partnership with YouTube Creators for Change and United Nations Climate Change in a context of absolute climate urgency confirmed by numerous reports published each year by the IPCC and international conferences.
It has now been more than 15 years that this short film festival has been defending values of equality and discovery by eliminating economic constraints through the use of mobiles and free registration - while promoting the creativity of directors who must tell a story in one minute maximum.
This year again, the Festival returns with the rules that made its success: 1 Mobile, 1 Minute, 1 Film. The filmmakers will have to respect a committed thematic: #ACTNOW on climate change. They are invited to submit films presenting desirable futures which are being built right now through numerous initiatives of committed citizens and NGOs around the world.
The main goal is to reveal and support the talents of tomorrow. By giving the floor to filmmakers of all geographical and cultural horizons - each film is strong, committed and unique. It is in this perspective that the collaborations with YouTube and United Nations Climate Change are taking shape.
The Mobile Film Festival will award €46’000 of grants.
The two €20 000 grants awarded by YouTube will allow the winning directors to produce in one year a short film with professional means and the help of a producer.
This year’s special edition is also supported by more than 90 NGOs, movements and international foundations and the Alpine Convention. We hope that these one-minute films from around the world will make people think and most of all, make citizens, political and economic decision-makers act.
We still have time, but the clock is ticking - so let’s ACT NOW on climate change!
- The call for films is open until October 16th 2019
