Cellphilms are videos filmed using a cellphone camera often with limited to no editing required, and are typically made with a specific purpose in mind, such as capturing something newsworthy, addressing a specific problem in a community or using it to teach a particular topic. This filmmaking method is being used by educators, researchers and community activists to encourage individuals and communities with or without previous filmmaking experience and limited access to video equipment to explore social and individual challenges and build community autonomy.

The 6th International Cellphilm Festival, held in Montreal, Canada in November 2018  will celebrate the contributions and insights of students, community activists, and research participants, using this mobile medium in hopes of further developing this method and their creativity. The 6th International Cellphilm Festival Theme is: “Making Community.”
