Celebrate Making Movies with Smartphones In San Diego Episode 25

The seventh edition of the annual International Mobile Film Festival takes place April 28 & 29 in San Diego. This year, we celebrate making movies with smartphones all over the world with a number of filmmakers who attend the festival. Films shot with only mobile phones will screen during the festival and the filmmakers look forward to sharing the stories with attendees and fellow filmmakers. Some filmmakers are local from San Diego and others come from other countries. Some of the filmmakers are as young as 12 years old and others…well, they are older. Some are experienced in the video and film industry and others are novices who only dreamed of being a filmmaker before last year.

This year’s festival not only brings mobile filmmakers to the event, a red carpet awards ceremony, Q&A Sessions, mobile filmmaking workshop presentation and networking. This year brings a feature length film shot with an iPhone during a special screening with a lecture by filmmaker and protagonist, Brian McLane from New York, and a Q&A session with Hollywood actor Tim Russ, best known for his role as Tuvok in the Star Trek Voyager television series. Tim Russ played a role in Brian’s feature film. But wait, there’s more! #MFF2018SanDiego will host the USA premier of the Filmbreaker movement keynote presentation with Jason van Genderen from Sydney, Australia.

The event will inspire the storyteller in people of all ages with or without film and video experience. Wether you made a Hollywood blockbuster film or your experience stops with your latest kitty cat video on Instagram, this film festival is for anyone who has a mobile phone or simply has access to one. The event is for all ages and for all human beings on the planet.

Sunday is the day we host the red carpet awards ceremony. Last year, the filmmakers enjoyed their red carpet experience with a local cosplay group: Star Wars Steampunk Universe. They are coming back this year. The International Mobile Film Festival is inviting all cosplayers to not only attend our film festivals but to participate with the new Cosplay mobile film category where they can join filmmakers from all over the world sharing their stories through film using their smartphone cameras. If you happen to be a cosplayer, join us to find out more about this unique filmmaking category designed for you!

Episode 25 of the SBP Podcast is a two-part episode. We begin with Tracy, Hot Nerd Girl, who leads the Star Wars Steampunk Universe group and Aaron Nabus, co-host of the HallHShow podcast and SBP Brand Ambassador. We recorded our podcast during the Steampunk Gaslight Gathering in San Diego in which Tracy’s group presented a panel.

The second part of our podcast is a compilation of clips from our podcast conversations which we had with guests who are participating in #MFF2018SanDiego as official filmmakers and VIP speakers such as Brian McLane and Jason van Genderen. The filmmakers chosen are attending the festival in San Diego and if you are coming, you can meet them in person.
