Pocket Shorts is back for a second year at the EIFF and a new innovation allows entrants the opportunity to share their mini-masterpiece with their fellow festival-goers.

Following the success of last year’s competition, Pocket Shorts is back at the EIFF with the 60:1 Filmmaking Competition. The rules are simple: shoot a sixty second film in one take on your mobile phone (or borrow one from the Pocket Shorts team) and we will make your film available for download on our BlueVend unit in the Filmhouse foyer. Full competition details are available at Pocket Shorts Scotland website.

Entries from the 60:1 competition and a selection 2005’s Pocket Shorts can be downloaded free directly to Bluetooth enabled mobile phones via the touch-screen BlueVend unit. Visit BlueVend on the EIFF information desk in the foyer of the Filmhouse Cinema, 19 – 25 August.

Our panel of experts will select the best films and announce the winning entries at the Pocket Shorts Launch Party at Cargo, Edinburgh on 25 August.

The launch party for the second year of Pocket Shorts Scotland will take place at Cargo.  With eight projects commissioned and funds of up to £3000 per project available, we’ll be announcing details of how and when to enter.  You’ll also get the chance to see some of the year one projects and the winning film in our 60:1 competition. The party is co-sponsored by Creative Edinburgh, Spring Corporation and Denholm Associates.

Pocket Shorts is supported by Scottish Screen, Scottish Enterprise and Nesta.
