Calling it the next big thing in cinema, a Toronto group is challenging scriptwriters and directors to make bite-sized movies for thumb-sized screens.

Organizers of Mobifest, billed as Canada’s first mobile film festival, are looking for the best films designed to be viewed on cellphone screens and under 60 seconds in length.

"Today we’re at the beginning (of the genre) but there’s a great opportunity for independent filmmakers to build a direct relationship with their audience," said Duncan Kennedy, one of the producers of the event.
