FilmsOnPhone presents a new type of film festival where the films can be viewed on the big screen and also on the FilmsOnPhone Festival App. The audience can use their mobile phone to view a film, vote for a film and see a live chart of who is winning.

This event is for Films below 45 mins in length, (some exceptions can be made).

FILMSONPHONE APP
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 vote for other films you think should win.

LIVE CHART
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.

SEND MESSAGES TO THE DIRECTOR
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.

WINNERS
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.

LIVE EVENTS
We have hired the Prince Charles Theater in London's Leicester Square to showcase the winners in the heart of London's Film Industry. If there are changes to COVID restrictions and it becomes impossible to showcase here, the event will be transferred to another London venue.
