FilmsOnPhone presents a new type of film festival where the films can be viewed on the big screen and also on the Free FilmsOnPhone Festival App.

The easiest way to understand our festival is to download our Free App.
Just search FilmsOnPhone in the Apple App Store or Google Playstore.

Our audience uses our App to view your film and then they vote for your film via the App. The Festival lasts for 6 month and a live chart shows everyone who is winning. The App has many features to help the audience discover films including messages to the Director and a feature based on your films emotional content.

Our festival is for Films below 45 mins in length, some exceptions can be made.

All entries will be added to the FilmsOnPhone Festival App which is released on both iOS and Android. You can share the App with your friends so they can vote for you and help you win. You and your friends can also watch any film in the festival and vote for other films you think should win.

A live chart shows the current position of each film in each category so you can monitor your films progress, the progress of all other films and see just how many votes you need to win. Each category has its own chart. The charts also show when a video has been added and if it's a fast riser or a fast faller.

The FilmsOnPhone App enables the Audience to ask the Director questions and the Director can answer them. This direct contact between Audience and Directors can provide invaluable feedback.

Are App includes Emotion Machine Learning that ranks your film by emotional settings and uses these to recommend films. The audience can adjust these settings to find films with similar emotional settings.

The Winners of each category will win their own permanent Winners Page in the App which will contain a link to their website. The winners will also be able to send a free in-app-notification which will be seen by everyone who has the App. They can use the notification to tell everyone about their next project.

We market each film via social media including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. This gets your Film and its Director noticed and increases your audience.

We have hired the Prince Charles Theater in London's Leicester Square to showcase the winners in the heart of London's Film Industry.
