Mobile phones have played a huge role in the Syrian Revolution. Despite the very real risk of arrest, torture or death, citizen journalists have used their phones to capture and share information about what is really happening on the ground in Syria.

In October of 2014, several Syrian-produced videos created with mobile devices were screened in areas of Northwestern and Southwestern Syria as part of the Syria's first Mobile Film Festival. Learn more about the festival here.
To celebrate both the courageous citizen-journalists and this innovative film festival, we have featured several of those projects on this page for you to see. We hope you are as moved as we were by these powerful videos.
