SBP is a pioneer in the mobile film industry, one of the first–if not the first–to bring films shot with only mobile phones to the big screen in a traditional film festival style. Our vision is realizing itself through the growth of the mobile film industry over that past few years. We began our quest in 2009, though founder Susan Botello had envisioned the camera on mobile phones, would be capable of shooting video for the journalism, film and business industry around the world after September 11, 2001. We began with the International Mobile Film Festival branded as International Mobil Film Festival™.
