Back for it’s seventh year, the Disposable Film Fest honors the art of guerilla filmmaking via less traditional mediums, like smartphones. Of course, as technology has grown and offered new ways to film on the fly, so has the festival itself. With over two thousand submissions for this year’s competitive program, the festival will showcase a wider variety of filming techniques than ever, such as shorts shot through apps such as Vine and Instagram.
Taking place March 20 – 23, the festival begins at the Castro Theatre with the Competitive Shorts Premiere, before a weekend full of events, panels, and further screenings. The Competitive Shorts Premiere program will feature a panel of professionals rating each short, including ex-San Francisco Film Society Executive Director and current Fandor CEO Ted Hope among other veterans of the film business. Audience members will also be eligible to vote for the Audience Choice Award.
It’s a festival for anyone interested in film, emerging technology, or for those just looking for something new and exciting to experience over the long weekend.
