Dublin Smartphone Film Festival

Irish Film Institute and Online, Saturday 30th April

The Dublin Smartphone Film Festival (DUBSMARTFF) is an international festival dedicated to celebrating work shot on Smartphones.

No longer is expensive technology a barrier to creativity. The mobile phone has expanded the scope and freedom for filmmakers. Now aspiring artists have the ability to write, shoot and edit, their films at the touch of a button. Smartphones are reshaping the way we approach filmmaking creating limitless possibilities in the palm of your hand.

The Festival, now in its 5th year, will take place on APRIL 30TH 2022 and will be in partnership with the Irish Film Institute based in Dublin's City Centre. It's shaping up to be our biggest event yet.

The IFI is Ireland's national cultural institution for film. It aims to exhibit, preserve and educate audiences about Irish and international cinema so we are honoured to be able to showcase films from our community on this national and international stage.

The 2022 event promises to an epic hybrid event carrying on the basis of these four key pillars, championing ourselves as a Festival that will create opportunities for industry professionals and audiences alike to discover truly new independent voices in the world of mobile filmmaking.
