In conjunction with Film Freeway our new Festival is like no other. It uses mobile phones as voting machines and as a way to view and play all entries.

App Based Festival
In App Voting

FilmsOnPhone presents a new type of film festival where the films can be viewed on the both the big screen and also on the FilmsOnPhone Festival App. The audience can use their mobile phone to view a film, vote for a film and see a live chart of who is winning.

All entries will be added to the FilmsOnPhone App for FREE. The App enables people to vote for your film and displays its position in the Film Charts. You can share the App with your friends so they can vote for you and help you win an award. You can also vote for other films that you think should win an award.

Live Chart

A live chart shows the current position of each film in each category so you can monitor your films progress and how many votes you need to win. Each category has its own chart and to win the Laurel you need to be at the top of that chart at the end of the festival. The trending charts also shows if a film is a fast riser or a fast faller.
