10 Years of Discovering the Best Documentaries for You

Phone Dox


What is the relation between contemporary documentary world and new technologies? Can the iPhone substitute the film camera in the future? In a pilot collaboration with Croatia‘s documentary festival ZagrebDox, DAFilms.com presents unique films made by mobile phones. Watch the unique documentary genre and new festival category Phone Dox from Wednesday, February 26, to Sunday, March 2, 2014 at DAFilms.com for free!

The arrival of new digital technologies has significantly transformed communication in today’s society. It has affected all of its parts, influencing both our personal and working lives. It did not avoid the field of art either, considerably expanding the possibilities of filmmaking. With a mobile phone equipped with a camera viewfinder, anyone can suddenly become a potential author and observer of the surrounding world. However, if the film language can be spoken by anyone, why keep traditionally schooled filmmakers? Is it possible to make a quality documentary account by means of a fast mobile recording at all?

The selection of 5 short documentary films screened in the new competition category Phone Dox of the Croatian festival is here to convince the audiences that mobile phone filmmaking can be a positive surprise, both in terms of aesthetic and content. Despite the fact that the presented documentaries do not meet the temporal and narrative demands of feature-length films, they clearly and significantly point out the unstoppable phenomenon of our time; the constant presence of its recording.

In collaboration with ZagrebDox festival, watch 5 competition films from the Phone Dox category from February 26 to March 2, 2014 at DAFilms.com for free!

My World

My World (Orig.) / 2013 / Spain / 4 min

I keep looking into myself if Madrid is my city. I came here more than 7 years ago from a place 9546 km far away from here. With the daylight I feel foreigner no matter nobody can tell unless I speak.



A Cell Phone Movie

Film mobitelom (Orig.) / 2011 / Bosnia and Herzegovina / 63 min

Film uses the aesthetics of cell phone cameras, which the director used after he was diagnosed with angina and his doctors recommended fast walking. He has transformed the 3,000 kilometers he walked over three years into a collage of playful, experimental, and lyric moments and family and social situations, all seen with a sense of tenderness and irony.





“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
