Glance at the Festival:
Clips via mobile cameras played an important role in the Syrian Revolution. Thousands of activists and journalists filmed footage via their mobile cameras to document the uprisings, which became the main tool in the peaceful struggle and freedom of expression against dictatorship, not only in Syria but across the Arab World.
In 2014, Syria’s Mobile Film Festival screened its films to a local audience in more than twenty cities across Syria. The festival aims to create a unique platform to support professional and amateur film directors in making creative films using the mobile camera and with low budget. In addition to cinematic screenings, the festival offers grants, awards and trainings for the directors.
