St Neots Film Festival

Make a Movie on Your Phone and See it on the Big Screen

St Neots Film Festival is calling for submissions. And with the amazing technology in smartphones, and a little bit of imagination and creativity, you can shoot a great movie.

Film makers can be any age and do not need to be experts. Why not press record and have a go?

Once you have an idea, write out a script, assemble your cast and get filming. Practise makes perfect so don’t expect to film a BAFTA winner first time around. Experiment with your phone, try filming in different lights and test out the settings on your camera.

It’s possible to edit your film on your phone and there are many apps available. However, you may find it easier to edit on a PC using Windows Movie Maker or another programme. Again, there are plenty to choose from. Check out techradar’s article: Best free video editing software: 2016’s top movie making applications.

Submit your short film (up to 20 minutes) online here: and you could see it on the big screen at St Neots Film Festival this Autumn.

Happy movie making.
