(TORONTO – February 15, 2017) The Toronto Smartphone Film Festival (TSFF) announced today of its first inaugural industry series Smartphone Filmmaking Weekend Workshop on March 18-19, 2017, 10am to 5pm at George Brown College in Toronto. In its 6th edition, TSFF comes back with a bold statement as #TheFestivalofThe6ix and launches the finest workshop in partnership with two innovative community partners of Toronto, Cyber Film School and George Brown College School of Media & Performing Arts.

“It is really exciting for us to have come this far to be able to launch a workshop of its kind,” said Mingu Kim, Executive Director of TSFF. “Smartphones and tablets are no longer communicable devices only used to talk and text with family and friends. With rapid improvements in technology today, smartphones and tablets are tools used as an expressive art form, a whole new level of communication and delivering one’s message. This is a great opportunity to learn how it’s done professionally and affordably.”

The Smartphone Filmmaking Weekend Workshop will be an intensive 2-day workshop instructed by Moe (Maurizo) Belli, Designer-Director of CyberFilmSchool Interactive DVD and iBook and Lance Carlson, CSC Cinematographer & Instructor at George Brown College. The workshop will provide hands-on learning experience using personal smartphones or tablets with considerations such as:  

1)    understanding smartphone camera as capture device
2)    learning advantages of shooting on smartphone
3)    finding/creating stories suited to smartphone treatment
4)    adapting your phone to work like a production camera
