The Smartphone Film Challenge takes off this year at AmérAsia, inviting professionals and amateurs alike to expand the boundaries of cinema using the latest communication technology: the smartphone.
Participants in this challenge will use their smartphones to record a short video on the theme announced at the AmérAsia opening gala, held on March 1, 2012. Over the next 72 hours, participants will film, edit, and upload their creations to the Ciné-Asie platform.
Ciné-Asie will also be providing mentorship and guidance by a specialist in the field to help participants fully exploit the still-unexplored potential of this increasingly accessible technology. Fifteen outstanding shorts chosen from amongst the submissions by the jury members will be screened on March 9 at the SAT, and the three best works will be awarded prizes.
