The Festival lasts four days and is packed with thought provoking masterclasses and Q&As as well as online screenings of the best films followed by the online Award Ceremony.
The winners will receive mobile filmmaking equipment from our amazing partners as well as a certificate.
Prizes will be given in the following categories:
