THE INTERNATIONAL PORTABLE FILM FESTIVAL BREAKS NEW GROUND AS THE FIRST CINEMA FREE FESTIVAL
The International Portable Film Festival (IPFF) is the world's first completely portable film festival, existing exclusively for portable video devices including iPods, 3G phones, PlayStation Portables and other devices.
The Festival is delivered through a videocast so there are no cinemas, no queues, no closed doors, no e-scalpers and no barriers to seeing the films you want, whenever you want. The Festival is absolutely free and completely portable.
IPFF connects you to films from all over the world. These are precious little films. Films that look good small. Films that give you glimpses into life from the oddest angles and the farthest corners of the globe.
Download the IPFF films to your iPod or your PSP or your phone. Plug them into your TV or watch them on the train. Bluetooth them to your friends from across the office or classroom.
The International Portable Film Festival is calling for challenging and inspiring film and video content for pre-selection in the 2006 IPFF Competition which will take place in July 2006.
The competition will profile films that openly experiment with form and style and that push the boundaries of identity and place in the digital age. There are a range of categories and prizes so check out the details and start thinking portable.
Entry to the competition is free and is now open until May 28.
Prizes will be announced in late April. Films will be judged under the following categories:
