What Do You Mean A Disposable Film Festival?


When I first heard about the Disposable Film Festival, hosted in San Francisco at the Castro Theater, I instantly turned to Google to figure out exactly what it was. I couldn’t stop imagining disposable cameras somehow churning out films. I was both confused and wrong.

The Disposable Film Festival showcases competitive shorts made with low-cost, everyday technology, including, but not limited to, DSLRs, mobile phones, pocket cameras and even Google Glass (which, I’m not too sure how low-cost or everyday Google Glass is, but it’s nontraditional).


This year’s festival featured heartfelt documentaries, kooky animations and mix media flicks. Sunday was the last screening day, so the shorts aren’t on Vimeo yet, but take a look at the 2013 short films.
