The theme of the #MINA2014 program is On The Move. In response to an open call for submission more mobile, smartphone and pocket films were submitted than ever before. This year already in its 4th edition, the MINA showcase includes micro-movies and micro-formats on travel and mobility, as well as various adventure films and projects realised with GoPros. Mobile cameras are more obiquitous than ever before, and their vastly improved technical standards are beginning to seriously challenge DSLR still cameras in terms of image treatment. what is my ip? . While any lens can be mounted onto smartphones, DSLRS and high end cameras still do not fit in your pocket.

For the 4th edition of the International Mobile Innovation Screening MINA is honoured to announce Robert Cahen as creative patron. 

Cahen is recognized as one of France’s foremost video artists and has produced a distinguished body of work for cinema and television since 1972. His dreamlike journeys depict fleeting glimpses of a transitory reality, transformed in time within the pictorial frame. Reviewing the MINA On the Move Program, which is curated by Max Schleser in collaboration with Gerda Cammaer (Canada), he said:
“A new artistic moment of mobile moving-image production is born. MINA creates a new vision embracing movement in mobile video.”
The #MINA2014 showcases the contemporary artistic vision of the mobile, camera and smartphone filmmakers from around the world who increasingly produce projects on the move.
