9TH INTERNATIONAL MOBILE INNOVATION SCREENING
Following on from four great screenings in New Zealand / Aotearoa and four
great screenings in Australia, we are excited to present the International
Mobile Innovation Screening for the first time in China. Team MINA, Mobile,
Innovation Network & Association, has been working with the great screening
committee and judges to present its 9th edition. This year MINA presented talks
at St Kilda Film Festival and a number of Smartphone Filmmaking and 360°
Video Production & Cinematic VR workshops. We finally managed to create a
Facebook group for those in the social world

Join us on https://www.facebook.com/groups/smartphonefilmmakers

This year MINA and the Goethe-Institut New Zealand collaborated on the
#Nucleus project (www.goethe.de/Nucleus). As a form of digital literacy,
storytelling and smartphone films can promote positive change and draw
attention to ecology and sustainability. Smartphone filmmaking in its third
generation is not only changing the industry inside and outside of the cinema,
but can also make a contribution to how we engage with the world. In times
of ‘Fridays for Futures’ demonstrations and Greta Thunberg symbolising
a generation keen to change the tone and topic on the conversation on
sustainability and ecology, the transmedia project engaged filmmakers and
anyone with a smartphone to create films on the theme of ecology. Smartphone
filmmakers from Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore,
Thailand, Vietnam and two filmmakers from Australia will present their work in In 2019 there are more smartphone film festivals internationally than ever

Short Film Competition for Smartphone Film
As a form of digital literacy, storytelling and smartphone films can promote positive change and draw attention to ecology and sustainability. Smartphone filmmaking in its third generation
is not only changing the industry inside and outside of the cinema, but can also make a contribution to how we engage with the world.

As a digital form of narrative, smartphone films can help change the way we think and also draw attention to the subject of ecology and sustainability. At the moment, smartphone films are
not just changing the film industry both on and off camera. They are also having an impact on the way in which we interact with our environment.

In this era of “Fridays for Future” demonstrations with Greta Thunberg as a symbol of a generation demanding the debate about sustainability and ecology be taken seriously, we challenged
filmmakers from Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand to send us their perspectives and contributions in the form of a 3-5 minute smartphone film.

Nearly 60 films were submitted and nine winners from Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam were invited to a workshop in Wellington, where
they spent three days collaborating on a smartphone short film on ecotourism with music contributed by German musician Hanno Leichtmann.

The competition ended with a podium discussion and gala screening at the iconic Embassy Theatre, where “Lord of the Rings” had its world premiere. The evening was officially opened
by the German ambassador, Stefan Krawielicki. As well as the winning films, the collaborative film on ecotourism was also presented. The event was accompanied by a podium discussion
featuring experts on the subject Sarah Meade, Mark Williams, John Barrett, Ian Yeoman and Max Schleser and smartphone competition winners Tejas Ewing and Fauzhyana Sharifa.

To offset some of the carbon emissions of their air travel, we supported the nature conservation project “Ngā Uruora” on the Kapiti Coast. The filmmakers spent half a day creating a lizard
habitat out of driftwood in a nature reserve there and a short film was produced to document the process.

Institute for Mobile Studies University of Nottingham Ningbo China
The Institute for Mobile Studies (IMS) aims to promote and conduct studies of mobile media and communication as an emerging field of scientific research. In collaboration with the mobile
industries and its counterparts in universities in UK, Malaysia, China, and beyond, IMS integrates its efforts in research, education and consultancy, covering the following areas of mobile studies:
mobile government, mobile health, mobile journalism, mobile learning, mobile advertising, mobile marketing, mobile storytelling, mobile photography, mobile filmmaking, mobile business,
mobile commerce, mobile experience, and mobile economy.

IMS has proposed “mobile experience” as a key concept for interdisciplinary investigation in different areas of mobile studies within the framework of “experience economy”. Besides its annual
Mobile Studies Summer School, IMS also organizes its annual International Mobile Storytelling Congress. Furthermore, IMS also hosts its Academia-Industry Summit Series (AISS), Research Talk
Series (RTS), and Mobile Studies Workshops (MSW) on a regular basis. On top of that, IMS has also initiated Mobile for SDG in Journalism (M4SDGJ) to enhance mobile reporting on sustainable
development goals.

The current key projects at IMS include (1) mapping, measuring, and modelling the mobile industries in UK, China, Malaysia, and beyond, (2) enhancing mobile experience in different areas of
human activities, (3) investigating the role and impact of mobile devices on the digital economy in One Belt and One Road Initiative countries, (4) mobile healthcare among third agers in China and
beyond, (5) the role and impact of mobile for sustainable development in underdeveloped and developing countries.

IMS welcomes professors and professionals of mobile media and communication from around the world to join us as research fellows or vising scholars to co-conduct research projects on any
topic related to mobile media and communication. Benefits for our research fellows include research visits to our institute, joint or solo research projects funded and/or hosted by IMS, discount
registration fees for attending IMSC, and chances to co-run IMSC, MSSS, M4SDGJ, AISS, RTS, and MSW.

To contribute to the global efforts to groom scholars of mobile studies, IMS is also recruiting more PhD students. For more information, please write to ims@nottingham.edu.cn
