Brighthand Mobile Film Festival

The Brighthand Mobile Film Festival (BMFF) is a two-day event (March 23-24) showcasing some of the most creative and interesting made-for-mobile content designed for display on small-format wireless cell phones, smartphones and communications-enabled devices.

The event takes place at CTIA Wireless 2010 next month in Las Vegas. CTIA Wireless is the premier mobile and wireless gathering in the U.S., and is expected to attract 40,000 or more attendees this year. This means your mobile film entry may be a part of an exciting showcase and competition that will be included in CTIA's emerging technology pavilion and screened for thousands of people in the wireless and mobile industries.

Entries should run about three-minutes or so, and can be in virtually any format. Filmmakers may submit entries in six different content categories: Comedy, Drama, Music, Animation, Documentary and Series. BMFF entries will be judged by a panel of experts, who will rate the ultra-short films on such things as creativity, entertainment value, 'real world' utility and best use of currently-available mobile technology.

Judges include Ed Hardy, Editor of Brighthand.com, Judi Babcock, producer at Friendly Fire Entertainment, Vancouver, B.C.; and Beau Buck, founder and CEO of mFlix and BigDigit, Inc. Finalists in each category will be awarded a guaranteed 60 days of national distribution on the mFlix mobile film channel, one of the first mobile channels of its kind in the U.S. now available on the Sprint PCS wireless network.
