The MOFILM Mobile Short Film Festival is the biggest mobile film festival in the world with backing from the GSM Association. Founded in 2007, originally as a collaboration between the Sundance Institute and the mobile industry, MOFILM highlights the increasing influence of the mobile medium on the entertainment industry, bringing together art, commerce and technology. MOFILM 2009 will be hosted by Kevin Spacey, two-time Academy Award winning actor and director. MOFILM also works with mobile operators and service providers to distribute ‘made-for-mobile’ content.
“The Iberminuto One Minute Film Festival of Spain & The Americas was founded in 2006 to show how mobile films can be created and produced either by professionals or amateurs, for the new entertainment, information and education mobile medium. Iberminuto focuses on promoting creativity and content for mobile in a growing world-wide marketing of more than 500M (five hundred million) spanish speaking subscribers”
Ralph Cochrane, co-founder of MOFILM commented “Creativity and expression are values shared by MOFILM and Iberminuto. To create a short film of just one minute requires real story-telling ability. We are delighted to work with Roberto and Iberminuto more closely to serve the Spanish speaking markets and beyond.”
“MOFILM bring an incredibly refreshing experience to the made-for-mobile market. Teaming up with superstars is a must when talking about successful movie production and distribution. We will always support these kind of events, which we understand are very good for the development of the mobile industry as a whole.” said Roberto Ponieman, Managing Director of the Iberminuto Film Festival.
The 3rd MOFILM Festival takes place as part of the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from the 16th to the 19th of February 2009, with more than 50,000 visitors expected while the 12th Shanghai International Film Festival will start from June 13-21, 2009.
