SF3 - SmartFone Flick Fest


SmartFone Flick Fest is Australia’s international smartphone film festival for filmmakers of all ages.

We are a world-wide festival open to anyone with a smartphone or tablet and a great idea for a short film.

SF3 provides a platform for budding, emerging and professional filmmakers to bring their ideas to life and have their films seen by a global audience, without the need for lots of fancy equipment or a big budget.

That great story you have always thought would make a great film? Here is your chance!

Just about everyone now has access to a smartphone or a tablet so start filming. It's that easy.

How SF3 works

From all the eligible entries, finalist films will be selected to screen in the SF3 Gala Awards Final Night, held at a premiere venue in Sydney, Australia, in Spring 2018. We have a very exciting announcement about a brand new venue partner coming soon and we can't wait to tell you all. Watch this space. But until then, at this screening our esteemed judging panel will award our SF3 prizes to the winners of each category, and the winning filmmakers and actors will take home prize packs worth in excess of $30,000.

For our People's Choice Award, our Top Ten Films will be available online and the general public and Gala audience are invited to vote for their favourite. The votes will be tallied and the film with the most votes/likes, will be awarded our People's Choice Award which will be presented a week after our Gala Awards event.

Once entered into SF3, unless stated otherwise, your film will be available on our website for people to view. We are passionate about supporting filmmakers and helping get an audience for your films.

We also partner with some amazing smartphone film festivals around the world, and all SF3 films are considered for screening at these festivals, providing yet another opportunity to have your film screened internationally. Past Top Ten and shortlisted films have screened at the International Mobil Film Festival in San Diego, the Syria Mobile Film Festival and many more of our partner festivals. We are also proud founding members of the Global Mobile Film Awards and in 2017, our nominees won awards in every category. Winning films from SF3 2018 are eleigible for nomination into the GMFA's 2018.
