Mission / description SF3 - the SmartFone Flick Fest is Australia’s only international smartphone film festival.

Open to filmmakers of all ages from first-time filmmakers to professionals. As long as your film is shot entirely on a smartphone or tablet and is within the six and a half minute time limit your film is eligible for submission. Everyone has a great idea for a short film and a potential movie camera in their pocket, so no excuses. Here’s your chance to start filming!

Ten films will be selected from all the entries to screen at our Gala Finals Event at the Chauvel Cinema in Sydney, Australia on August 24, 2017. The night starts with a VIP Meet and Greet Event which is a chance for all SF3 2017 filmmakers, creatives, actors, sponsors and judges to mingle with industry professionals and each other. The SF3 Top Ten Films will then be screened on the beautiful big screen of the iconic and historic Chauvel Cinema and a panel of esteemed judges will award the SF3 Prizes to category winners, including the top prizes of SF3 2017 Best Film and SF3 2017 People's Choice Award. Although awarded on the night, the People's Choice Award is open for online voting for two days prior to the Gala Finals Event. All other prizes are awarded by our judging panel.

Many of our past Top Ten and shortlisted films have been invited to screen around the world at our partner film festivals including the International Mobil Film Festival in San Diego, the Syria Mobile Film Festival and more. The opportunities are endless for smartphone filmmakers. All films MUST be shot entirely on a smartphone or tablet and must not exceed 6.5 minutes (including credits). You can use any editing software, apps and phone additions, and you can edit on a PC, laptop or your phone.ull your phone out of your pocket and start filming, it really is that easy!

That phone in your pocket is a potential movie camera, so get creating.
