The Disposable Film Festival

Posted filed underFestivals, Film, Mobile.

Selected by MovieMaker Magazine as one the world’s “coolest film festivals,” the Disposable Film Festival was created in 2007 by Eric Slatkin and Carlton Evans to celebrate the creative potential of disposable video: short films made on everyday equipment like cell phones, pocket cameras, and other inexpensive video capture devices. The Disposable Film Festival hosts screenings, competitions, and other events to showcase the best work within the genre. Disposable kicks off in San Francisco every March before traveling to cities around the world. Check out the events page to find out when we’ll be in a city near you. Starts March 22nd.

The Disposable Film Festival supports and celebrates the democratization of cinema made possible by new, inexpensive video technology, offering a legitimate forum in which the work of zero-budget and non-traditional filmmakers is taken seriously and exhibited in theaters around the United States and internationally. Through workshops, competitions, panels, and other events intended to educate and inspire, the Disposable Film Festival promotes experimentation and helps build the track record needed for a new generation of filmmakers to enter and change the industry.
