Movies for a mobile world.
Huawei Mobile Films is a festival celebrating how smartphones are empowering a new generation of creators to share stories through the lens of the devices we use every day.
Because mobile devices have changed the way we view entertainment. So shouldn’t they also change the way we create it? Huawei is committed to creating technology that drives creativity and self-expression, and with innovations like a second-generation Leica Dual Camera and 4000mAh battery, the Mate 9 is empowering a new generation of filmmakers.
Taking place entirely on social media, Huawei Mobile Films is a first-of-its-kind event that showcases how art is evolving in the modern age.
