What is Firefox Flicks?

Firefox Flicks is a global video competition encouraging filmmakers to educate others about the issues that affect our online lives. This year, it's all about the power that having access to the Web through mobile devices gives people and how that power can change the way we see the world and function within it.

  • Robert "Bob" Harvey

    EVP, Global Sales and Marketing, Panavision

    “ Panavision is excited to partner once again with the Firefox Flicks team. As partners, we are really interested in working with talented storytellers to share some of the 60-plus years of experience we have in filmmaking and stay at the forefront of the industry's transition to digital cinematography. ”

  • Franklin Leonard

    Founder, Black List

    “ My livelihood is built on spotting talent early and introducing them to Hollywood. Working with Firefox on the 2013 Flicks campaign is a natural extension of that work – creating access to the film industry for unknown but talented storytellers who will go on to make the films that will inspire the generation that follows behind them. We now live in a world where the only distance between that network and those storytellers can and should be a browser window, and I'm incredibly excited to be working with Firefox to make sure that's true. ”

  • Edward Norton

    Actor, Director, Producer, Activist

    “ What I think is really cool about Firefox Flicks is that it marries that core philosophy of liberating people to say what they want to say and connects it to something that's happening in the arts and film. ”

    Edward Norton
  • Catherine Ogilvie

    General Manager, EMEA Marketing, Dolby

    “ Sound and cinema have been inextricably linked since the movies started talking to us. Partnering with Firefox Flicks is a natural fit for Dolby as we're passionate about using sound to tell great stories through the medium of film. We're looking forward to helping young filmmakers capture the power of sound to deliver unforgettable experiences in their films. ”

  • Shauna Robertson


    “ I'm a firm believer that if you have the talent and you work hard all you need to succeed is the right forum. That's what excites me about Firefox Flicks. It gives aspiring film students and filmmakers a forum that showcases their talent to millions of people around the globe and gives them access to folks that can change the trajectory of their careers. ”

  • Gina Rodriguez


    “ I love working with companies that give opportunities to independent artist, by combining technology and art Firefox is doing just that! Thank you Firefox Flicks for opening doors and allowing me to be a part of the process! ”

    Gina Rodriguez
  • Couper Samuelson


    “ Now that technology has helped democratize film production, it's important for technology to democratize its distribution and there is no more democratic distribution mechanism than the web browser. I'm excited to work with Mozilla and its community of creators to help tell original stories and deliver them to audiences around the world. ”

    Couper Samuelson
  • Louie Schwartzberg


    “ For over 30 years, I have been constantly engaged in filming the connections we all share, as humans, with the rest of our planet. The moments that make us inspired and connect us to the universe through the celebration of life. Firefox Flicks is all about connecting people through the mobile web and I'm more than happy to share my perspective with the filmmakers of tomorrow in this pursuit. ”
