Grounded in participatory video and mobile media, cellphilm production allows groups to come together to highlight critical issues in their lives through the use of cellphones. With this in mind, the organizers of this year's festival invite submissions that explore how you and your community (a small group of friends, members of a project or class, research colleagues, a global community, etc.) picture change in your neighborhood, your community, your country or your planet.
