In one of the first collaborations of its kind, six new and established independent film-makers created short films designed to be viewed on a mobile platform.
The five films are being shown exclusively at the GSMA's Congress in Barcelona this week with wide distribution to mobile audiences beginning Feb 15.
'We hope that the Global Short Film project inspires filmmakers and artists to think outside of the realm of traditional venues for cinema, and experiment with mobile as an intimate new avenue - with global potential - for their work,' John Cooper, director of programming for the Sundance Film Festival and creative director for
Sundance Institute, said.
The Sundance Film Festival Global Short Film Project films are:
A Slip In Time - Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris
