Smart is based in London but is international to its core.
HOW TO ENTER
It’s really simple to enter Smart. The next festival will be open for entries in May 2022.
There are 6 categories:
- 1 minute or under
- Drama/scripted – 10 minutes or under
- Documentary/factual – 10 minutes or under
- Drama/scripted – over 10 minutes
- Documentary/factual – over 10 minutes
- Experimental & Other
Each category winner receives a classy trophy and a mentoring session with one of the judges (who are leading directors, producers and commissioners). They will also be offered distribution opportunities with Little Dot Studios (London/LA/Berlin) if they would like.
We like films made 100% on smartphones but anything shot more than 50% on smartphone is eligible.
Judging is based on concept and execution.
- Is the film fresh, imaginative and original?
- Is its purpose clear and comprehensible?
- Does it capture and retain the viewer’s attention?
- Are the craft and technique coordinated so as to enhance the film’s impact?
- Do they help convey the idea effectively?
SMART reserves the right to move films into more appropriate categories if they have not been entered into an appropriate one.
To help cover the costs and admin we ask for the following contribution:
