If you’re into short films and movie making, take a look at The Cellflix Festival , a new student film contest sponsored by Ithaca College, offering $5,000 for the best student-created 30-second short film. The catch: Entries must be shot entirely with a camera cell phone.
The website is pretty cool – with a sample movie clip available on the opening page. The school has invited high school and college students from across America to submit a 30-second student film shot entirely with a camera cell phone – as of early December, there were more than 70 entries and scores of eMail inquiries.
There’s a useful article on this available on the eSchool News website that provides more background to the story behind the festival.
