For its 16th international edition, the Mobile Film Festival has chosen to commit to the women’s cause through the theme WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT. With this topic, the Mobile Film Festival wishes to approach very largely the feminist issues in a positive, constructive and activist way.

The filmmakers are invited to create films according to the unique format that has made the originality of the festival for 16 years: 1 Mobile, 1 Minute, 1 Film.

The addressed questions in those films may be specific to the filmmakers’ country, to their culture or religion; these questions may concern the family, professional or intimate universe; they will report unacceptable situations still too much present and they will also propose some concrete actions to ameliorate the situation; they may be global or local and especially they will highlight the fights of the feminist movement throughout
the world for a real equality search.

A festival which is 100% digital, that is the DNA of the Mobile Film Festival since its creation, but its very short and creative format allows a diffusion on all kinds of screens: mobile, tablet, computer, TV, and cinema. During the last edition, the Mobile Film Festival received more than 800 films from 91 countries and reached 21 million viewers.

    It's a really nice festival, which put a lot of efforts in communication about every selected short. It gives a good amount of visibility and the screening in a big cinema of Paris was really spectacular.
