Paris tours could offer the opportunity to discover some new and unusual cultural creations later this year at the Pocket Film Festival.
This event, which is dedicated to showing films created using mobile phones, will come to the French capital’s Forum des Images from June 12th to 14th.
Visitors will be able to attend a number of free screenings and events during the course of the festival and will be given the opportunity to download any films they want to see again to their own phone.
Artists participating in the 2009 Pocket Film Festival include the French underground filmmaker Joseph Morder, theatre director Pippo Delbono and painter Richard Texier.
A series of concerts and debates will feature on the festival programme this year, as well as workshops exploring how mobile phones can be used to create high-quality and convincing films.
Another Paris institution dedicated to contemporary culture is the Centre Pompidou, which is currently hosting exhibitions of work by the artists Wassily Kandinsky, Asger Jorn and Alexander Calder.
