Mobile Phone Short Film
The mobile phone short film competition for the first HIFF
The HIFF ran a film competition featuring shorts shot entirely on any mobile device (smartphone, tablet, ipad, etc). This was an exciting opportunity to showcase young people's mobile film capabilities and the talent and creativity of young filmmakers. The age limit was just 23 yrs
The theme of the films was 'Hebrides environment - what matters to you’. The 1-3 minute length mobile shorts were hosted on our HIFF website and screened in our pop up cinema exhibition space in Stornoway town centre throughout the week of the Festival 22nd -27th September 2014.
A panel of judges selected a shortlist of six entrants and these were then judged the week prior to the festival.
The shortlisted films were screened in the HIFF exhibition place during the week of the festival, and the winner was decided by a panel and was awarded a £50 token redeemable at Argos or linked stores and a HIFF Festival pass.
