Eye Want Change promotes and spotlights Smartphone Filmmaking. We nurture creative self-expression and storytelling from a multitude of voices.
Filmmakers no longer need to depend on broadcasters and suits. Eye Want Change offers a space where creativity and passion is placed above formal education, access to equipment, large budgets and technical expertise. Inspired by the use of phones by activists across the world and by films shot entirely or in part on smartphones, we look to affordable mobile technologies to democratise media and diversify filmmaking.
We lead workshops, and put on screenings and events focused on smartphone filmmaking, guerrilla filmmaking and how to harness accessible digital technology for social change.
Central to Eye Want Change is our annual international smartphone film competition. It is free to enter and awards prizes which help filmmakers develop their skills and projects. Its entry requirement is simple: Submit a short mobile film on a social issue that you care about. The 2017 competition is now closed.
To support and amplify a more diverse range of voices and filmmaking talent, and inspire them to engage creatively with social issues.
To provide a welcoming and open home for Smartphone Filmmaking, countering the inaccessibility and elitism of the film/TV industry.
To harness the creative potential of the mobile phone and its ability to make social impact.
