The future is mobile, and mobile is the cornerstone for a series of events at AUT this week exploring mobile technologies in film, education, business and creativity.  

Films from all across the globe will be displayed at the third International Mobile Innovation Screenings this week, showing the amazing filmmaking that can be done just off a smartphone.

According to Laurent Antonczak (AUT University) and Max Schleser (Massey University), co-founders of MINA (Mobile Innovation Network Aotearoa), it's an opportunity to show the public just what potential is being carried around in their pockets.

“Mobile filmmaking has been around for about a decade, but in the last two years we have seen a shift to HD camera technology that even allows slow-motion filmmaking and simultaneously filmmakers have completed short films all on smartphones using apps for editing. This opens up a new dimension for filmmaking,” says Schleser.

Public screenings are first in first served, no registration required (but capacity is limited).
