The Oneida Film Society presents the first Oneida Smartphone Film Festival. The theme for the festival is Telling Our Own Stories. Our vision is to create a film platform for novice and experienced filmmakers to incorporate talent and creativity into a 3-10 minute long film captured on a smartphone or tablet. We are looking for stories that represent Native communities and inspire individuals to promote self-discovery, connection, and build relationships with others. Submissions will narrate belief, culture, and personal stories. Film submissions are due on the extended deadline on October 30, 2019. All films submitted will be screened by a committee with letters of acceptance by November 8, 2019. The Oneida Smartphone Film Festival will showcase all qualified films on November 21, 2019 at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center. Up to $2,000 in cash prizes!

1) Upload film to Oneida Smartphone Film Festival Film Freeway

2) Complete & email Submission Form to jquintan@oneidanation.org
