The List of Films showcased in Mobil Film Festival 2012

The premier annual Mobil Film Festival took place April 28 & 29, 2012 in San Diego, California.
We had eight films from around the world and local films. All the films were shot with cell phones. Most films were shot using iPhone 4. However, this film festival does not limit brands or makes and models of cell phones used.

Although some films were uploaded to a computer for editing, some used professional software for adding effects and correcting footage.

Of the three winning films, one was edited on the cell phone as well as shot on the cell phone. That film, Apple Of My Eye, submitted by Michael Koerbel, took First Place in the Mobil Film Festival.

The Fixer (shortened to meet criteria), submitted by Luis Mieses aka Conrad Mess, took Second Prize. The Fixer was also a great film that was shot on the cell phone and then treated with special effects on a computer.

Julien Magnan took Third Place with Fecamp, Normandie, also shot on a cell phone and then treated on a computer as well.

The Mobil Film Festival, which began on a Saturday, ended the following day with an award ceremony, following the famous walk on the red carpet. Each filmmaker & actors who attended the festival had their moment as they walked the red carpet cheered on by spectators who took their photo and shot video as well.

During the film festival, the filmmakers, crew and actors had a chance to network and enjoy their films on the big screen. They had a chance, each day, to present themselves after their films showcased and follow with Q&A from the audience. Every attendee had questions and was intrigued by the quality of the films showcased.
