Loose it and win it.

The 4th edition of the Pocket Films Festival has taken place at the Pompidou Centre in Paris, from June 13 - 15, 2008. 140 films made with mobile telephones were presented on the cinema screen, and 150 mobile videos were presented on mobile telephone screens. One hundred of filmmakers, artists, producers, from all over the world including international guests such as Isabella Rossellini, Stephen Dwoskin, and Masaki Fujihata, presented their works in the field of mobile video creation. More than 7,000 spectators visited the festival experiencing a myriad of propositions this year: films presented on multiple screen sizes, the possibility to “Take home” with them video creations designed for wireless diffusion, mobile filmmaking workshops and video-walks throughout the center of Paris.
The jury members, headed by the graphic novel artist and filmmaker Enki Bilal, have chosen The Champion, by the portuguese Rui Avelans Coelho. It's an extraordinary 1 minute 'documentary'. No words needed to describe it. Just see it here and clap your hands.
The 1st prize was 1,500 € and a 3G+ mobile telephone, which he really needed. ;-)
