MIFF 2024

Come Make A Film With Us

Finally, it’s back!

We’re extremely excited to announce the start of the 7th Moment Invitational Film Festival (MIFF). MIFF is like summer school for filmmakers. We’re learning together, creating together, and celebrating together when we’re all done.

This year we have over $100k of cash and gear prizes on the line for those who want to push the limits and show the world what can be shot on a phone.

There are 5 different categories to enter, an epic 2 day filmmaker workshop, and then one massive premiere to celebrate everyone!

Made possible by Moment, Artlist, WANDRD, Joby, Lume Cube, Zhiyun, & Apex Photo Studios.

The Timeline:

  • June 25th - Start of MIFF season

The Categories:

Make a film that falls into one of five categories.

Music Video

Create the perfect visual journey to accompany an incredible song.


Tell a true story. Help us learn what makes someone or something special.


Get a little weird and wild with your experimental film. Up to your interpretation.
