About Us

The Dublin Smartphone Film Festival is a international festival dedicated to celebrating work shot on Smartphone and Tablets.  

No longer is expensive technology a barrier to creativity. The mobile phone has expanded the scope and freedom for filmmakers, providing limitless possibilities in the palm of your hand.


The festival was created with the goal of encouraging filmmakers to share the stories they have captured on mobile devices and to provide smartphone filmmakers with a platform to exhibit these stories to a wider audience. 

The festival takes place, January 2021.  Submissions for the 2021 will open in March 2020 via Film Freeway
