The deadline for sending films for the sixth edition of the festival “Cinema in the palm of your hand” is May 31, according to its organizers from the Shumen community center.
According to the regulations, authors from the country and abroad can participate in the first festival in Bulgaria for short films shot with a mobile device with a built-in camera. According to the technical rules, the videos must be in “mp4” format, pre-edited and lasting up to five minutes. Foreign language films must also have an annotation in Bulgarian. One author or team of authors can participate with no more than three films, the organizers note.
For the best productions, there is a cash prize, mobile phones and tablets. The complicated epidemic situation has ruined the official awarding of the winners of the previous edition of the festival, but the organizers hope that this will happen in May this year.
The organizer of the festival of mobile cinema is the Shumen community center “Dobri Voynikov – 1865”, and its partners are the municipality of Shumen, the Union of People’s Chitalishte, the University of Shumen, NATFA, UNIBIT.
