Film festival for mobile phones

TAGS: mobile

Last week took place Third Screen Film Festival where Entertainment industry executives and wireless types got together at the Museum of Television and Radio in Beverly Hills . It was the first such event for films made specifically for mobile phones. Todd Spence's "The Lost" beat out the nearly 1,000 submitted short films took the festival's top prize of a $10,000 filmmaker grant. Sprint Nextel Corp.'s GoTV Super Channel will show Spence's clip.

Among other festivals winners were Matt Paige's "Pumpkin," the clip received the most text-message votes from the festival's 200 attendees and took $3,000 Jury Prize, and Tim Saccardo's "Slideshow," which was presented with the Mobile Award.

The requirement of the completion was that video clips-animated shorts, comedy skits, mini-dramas-designed to be viewed on mobile phones. The festival attended such people as judges included David Gale, executive vice president of new media and specialty film content at MTV Networks; Suzanne Zizzi of John Woo's Lion Rock Productions and Ron Taylor of Fox Diversity Development, among others. MTV's 24-hour college network will air student winners' work and nearly 7 million students nationwide will watch it.
