filMO 2013

15th november – 2nd december 2013

Fifth edition of the LABoral Pocket Film Festival


filMO is a pocket film festival made with mobile devices such as phones or low-resolution cameras, conceived and promoted since its first edition by LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial. The purpose of the festival is none other than to promote the creativity and critical spirit of adolescents and young creators in a society built and understood from the centrality of the digital image.

Continuing with the line of work undertaken, and in its fifth edition, filMO proposes the Gijón Film Festival as a setting. From November 15 to 23, participants will be able to record their work using everything surrounding the 51st edition of the Festival as raw material for their films.


filMO amateur cinema:section for pieces made with non-HD cameras, phones and/or micro cameras.

Guest signatures:section reserved for those invited to the Festival – directors, critics and, in general, film professionals – who are encouraged to participate in the call.

Rules and prizes*:The amateur film section of the festival is awarded two prizes. On the one hand, the jury prize of 500 euros; and on the other hand the public prize of 300 euros.
