The 2006 iteration of the ambitious mobile short film project spearheaded by marblemedia, the National Film Board and CHUM Television’s BravoFACT will be making its way to Barcelona next month after being nominated for a leading mobile industry award. Shorts in Motion: The Art of Seduction picked up a nomination in the Best Made-For-Mobile Service category at the upcoming Global Mobile Awards, presented by the GSM Association at its annual conference. This year’s field of entries included 10 short films, directed by such Canadian notables as Guy Maddin, Mark McKinney and David Villeneuve, on the subject of seduction.
But it’s not the first time the project has garnered international acclaim. "Last year’s Shorts in Motion project – which involved only four filmmakers – received the only two Canadian official nominations at Cannes’ MIP Mobile Awards, bringing the project worldwide attention and recognition," Judy Gladstone, executive director of BravoFACT, said in a media release.
