 CALL FOR VIDEOS____________________________________________________
 IV MOBILEFEST 2009 - International Festival of Mobile Art and Creativity in
 São Paulo, Brazil.
 Call for mobile videos 2009
 Mobilefest International Mobile Video Exhibition
 17th to 28th September 2009
 MIS – Museum of Image and Sound (Museu da Imagem e do Som) Sao Paulo,
 THEME: How can mobile technology contribute to democracy, culture,
 art, environment, peace, education, health and the Third Sector?
 Mobilefest Call for Mobile Videos has a cultural emphasis and, thus,
 is not competitive by design.  We seek the very best content possible
 to share broadly with our participants and via mobile technologies.
 The 2009 Call for Mobile Video is for professional
 filmmakers/videographers (writers/producers/directors), as well as
 amateurs (people that do not make their primary living in the
 film/video business). Mobilefest also seeks participation and
 contribution from artists, researchers and developers actively engaged
 in discovering new possibilities for uses of mobile media.
 Today, several initiatives by non-governmental organizations (NGOs),
 universities, media centers, companies, governments and regular
 citizens all over the world use the new mobile technologies to promote
 democracy, culture, art, the environment, peace, education, health and
 the Third Sector.  Mobilefest International Mobile Video Exhibition
 will screen selected narrative, documentary and experimental
 film/videos that support these.
 Films and videos submitted should relate to one or more of the stated
 Mobilefest general theme categories (democracy, culture, art, peace,
 the environment, education, health, and the Third Sector). Video about
 the environment is separately considered.
   1. Professional Submissions
 Mobilefest seeks films/videos that may be narrative, documentary or
 experimental in nature, provided they relate to democracy, culture,
 art, peace, education, health and the Third Sector.  They must be
 suitable for viewing on a small format, although they need not have
 been shot using mobile technology.  Running time is not restricted.
 Films/videos can be independent, studio produced, or corporate
 Submissions must be professionally produced/directed and may be
 submitted either by the writer, director or producer(s).  Videos
 should have been completed during the previous year, although
 exceptions will be allowed with advance permission from Mobilefest
 organizers.  Previously submitted entries may not be resubmitted.
   2. Amateur Submissions
 Citizen filmmakers and videographers unite!  Submit your creations
 that were made either using your mobile phone, or made for watching on
 a mobile.  Whether telling a story or documenting something, you can
 submit your video as long as it relates to any of the themes of
 A significant aspect of Mobilefest is its commitment to screen
 informative and consciousness-raising digital content (shot either by
 professionals or amateurs around the world) that encourages the
 mobilization of everyone to protect and preserve our planet for
 generations to come.
 Mobilefest calls on all mobile users around the world – professional,
 amateur, citizen journalists, etc. – to mobilize for the protection of
 the environment by sending noteworthy videos of the environment from
 their mobiles or computers.  In addition to images that may reveal
 lack of respect towards our Earth – like illegal cutting of trees,
 water pollution, wild animal smuggling, or other irregularities –
 Mobilefest also seeks videos that show the beauties of nature to draw
 attention to what future generations will miss if we don’t take action
 now to preserve and protect Mother Nature.
 - Only the rightful owner of material may submit it.  Material may not
 be submitted by third parties on behalf of anyone else.
 - Submissions may include fiction and non-fiction films/videos that
 reflect the issue of environmental protection.
 - Submissions need not be professionally produced or directed.
 - Special attention will be given to documentary footage – either
 professional, amateur or citizen journalist – that captures
 environmental mistreatment.  If       your video documents acts being
 committed against the environment, please include date, approximate
 time and place of shooting, and total running time of the video.
 Mobile and wireless technologies are making it possible for artists of
 all kinds to stretch the boundaries of their creativity.  Mobilefest
 encourages producers, developers and artists to explore their
 imagination in search of new artistic expression that uses current
 technology and hints at future possibilities for content production
 and distribution.
 Mobilefest Festival seeks artwork, video and mobile-related creativity
 that incorporates such technologies as GPS; 3G/4G access; music;
 wi-fi; scanning; video calls; micro-blogging; picture and video
 messaging; new applications; localized content; real-time image
 processing and recognition; augmented or mixed reality; streaming
 video sharing; and mobile TV.

 categorization or prerequisites, so if you have something you believe
