Sure. You’ve done it. You’ve shot a video using your smartphone of your baby throwing food, a stunning panoramic view, or your puppy yawning in the most adorable way. So, imagine using your phone to shoot an actual documentary or narrative short film. Well, some creative minds have already done that. And now, a new event in Lisbon celebrates these small but important works of art. It’s Smartfest, the International Mobile film Festival, 3-8 May.

Officially, organizers describe Smartfest as an annual national and international film festival produced and made with mobile devices, which celebrates a new way to appreciate cinema, through the use of new technologies.

Providing a unique perspective to Smartfest is a series of films entitled Syria and Mobile devices – Scenes of Conflict. This partnership with the Syria Mobile Film Festival shows us the reality from both the aggressors and the victim’s point of view.
