World's Smallest Film Festival needs to be bigger

Your chance of becoming an award-winning film producer just went up, because it seems that they need more submissions for "The world's smallest film festival." It's too small!

The real reason it's the smallest film festival, of course, is that it caters only for short films for display on mobile phones. But unless more people apply to compete, it may be small in other ways, too. So make a movie!

"You may be interested to know that we are just finishing a site for film makers and animators to submit works to 'The World's Smallest Film Festival' - London," reports Beau Buck, ceo and founder of the organising company, BigDigit.
