For the last seven years, DIMFF has been arranging the mobile film festival promoting mobile filmmaking. This session will discuss how mobile films can be another genre of films, create their own distinct storytelling language, and why mobile filmmaking should be practiced. The possibilities, awareness, and limitations of mobile filmmaking will be discussed elaborately in these sessions.

On September 2, the first day of the session, will be conducted by film critic-writer Mahmudul Hossain. This discussion will highlight the keynote addressing the lexical and practical context of personal cinema. This session will give a clear idea about the position of personal cinema in the light of overall film history- from then to the present time.
