Overall Rating
  • MoMo was a wonderful festival to be a part of, the organisers are experts in the field and serious about promoting mobile filmmaking to the world. The line up of films to watch was breathtaking and even though we had to attend online, it was still a great way to catch up on the best Mobile films from the past year. The online platform was easy to navigate and Andrea and Simon stayed in contact and kept us updated on the progress of the film. Winning an award at MoMo was great recognition for our team and ONE PUNCH's story and message, and has helped us get this film seen by a worldwide audience. Thanks team!

    What an awesome festival! The Mobile Motion team is helping rapidly accelerate the growth of this new way to create independent films. It was an honor to be selected with such incredible films and I hope to have the opportunity to be a part of this festival in the years to come!

  • I’ve followed the festival for a few years now, so to finally make a film that is worthy of being selected is a great honour. It was fun and really professional. Most importantly, at the heart of MoMo are festival directors that really care about the filmmakers and are genuinely passionate about film.

    It was an honor to be included in the Mobile Motion Film festival. The programmers were thoughtful and considerate with every submission. I enjoyed the festival lineup and all of the amazingly talented film makers involved. I look forward to continued involvement with mobile film making and the MoMo Film Fest.

    Even if the festival didn't occur due to Covid 19, the communication and support was great! I will certainly apply with my next film.
