2. SmartPhilm Fest 2018: International Smartphone Film Festival
With flagship phones like the Samsung S9+ and the iPhone X supporting 4k video recording capabilities, more and more filmmakers are ditching the movie reel and are shooting their new projects via the lens of their smartphone. The SmartPhilm Fest is a celebration of the efforts of this niche of filmmakers as all movies on show are shot from a smartphone.
3. EuroAsia Short Films Festival
The EuroAsia Short Films Festival champions and celebrates movies originating from Europe, Asia, and the United States. What makes this event unique is that there’s a Q and A session held every night so you can talk directly to the directors and the actors about their work.
The event will take place on the 5th of June at the Goethe Institute in Washington, DC and will start at 6:30 P.M. sharp.
4. The People’s Free Film Festival
If you’re into movies and documentaries that highlight the social and political impact of movies on our lives then the People’s Free Film Festival is one event that you just can’t afford to miss. With a feature presentation on the critically acclaimed Passin it On, this film festival is much more grounded and promises to be much more personal than any other entry on our list.
If that has piqued your interest then you should clear out your schedule for the 15th of June as this festival is scheduled for that. Tickets for the event can be found here.
