The History

We created the Moment Invitational to encourage filmmakers around the globe to push the limits of what can be shot on a phone. We believe that making films with a phone is not a limitation, it’s an opportunity. The mobility, size, and immediacy of a phone allows us to see the world differently. The Invitational is our way of advancing this cause.

Past Filmmakers

We’ve been fortunate to work with some of the most talented filmmakers in the industry. They’ve shown us some of the most remote places we’ve never been — from their own backyards to the destinations we often dream about. Every year we’re blown away by what they make.

See all of the past filmmakers.
