About the Disposable Film Festival
The Disposable Film Festival was created in 2007 to celebrate the artistic potential of a new mode of filmmaking.
What is the Disposable Film Festival?

Selected by MovieMaker Magazine as one the world’s “coolest film festivals,” the Disposable Film Festival was created in 2007 by Carlton Evans and Eric Slatkin to celebrate the democratization of cinema made possible by low cost video technology: everyday equipment like mobile phones, pocket cameras, DSLRs and other inexpensive devices. Through screenings, workshops, competitions, panels, and other events intended to educate and inspire, the Disposable Film Festival promotes experimentation and helps build the track record needed for a new generation of filmmakers to enter and change the industry. Disposable kicks off in San Francisco every March before traveling to cities around the world. Check out our events page to find out when we'll be in a city near you.

We want your Disposable Films. So shoot 'em, cut 'em, and send 'em in.
