It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Mosaic Mobile, a short film competition for Michigan high school and college students is back!

Mosaic Mobile challenges the conventions of storytelling, celebrates critical thinking and creativity and empowers students discover the diverse world around them.

Each Mosaic Mobile film requires the use of a theme, prop, and saying. The three requirements are intentionally open-ended to encourage interpretation and creativity.

2019 Requirements

Theme: Belonging
Use the theme of belonging as a guide for creating your short film.

Prop: Signs
This can be any type of sign.

Saying: “I never thought of that.”
This phrase can be spoken, written, or displayed in any way.

Cash Prizes

The Mosaic Film Experience will award more than $2,000 in cash prizes for the first, second, third place for high school and college Mosaic Mobile categories. High school student films are also eligible for the Rick Wilson Memorial Prize, honoring the late Rick Wilson – an Emmy award-winning journalist, storyteller, and impactful member of the inaugural team of The Mosaic Film Experience.

After we announce finalists, audience voting for the Rick Wilson Memorial Prize will begin on October 24 and end October 28 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Finalist Screenings

High school finalists will be highlighted in a special film screening at the 2019 Mosaic Mobile High School Awards Ceremony at the Wealthy Theatre on November 6 and 7.

College finalists will be screened by 2018 Academy Award-winning screenwriter Kevin Willmott at the 2019 Mosaic Mobile College Awards Ceremony on November 5, 2019.
