60SIFF is dedicated towards making filmmaking easy and accessible to amateur filmmakers. For this reason, in collaboration with several other implementing partners, 60SIFF developed an educational smartphone application called Citory.
With the Citory application one can be a filmmaker on their own. Citory is a powerful application that allows the users to take pictures and record videos from their own android devices and then edit them to make complete 60 second videos or photo stories. The concept based on in-phone editing removes the need of having fancy cameras or complex editing software at hand.
The application has already proved to be a success and many workshops were completed with school children and teachers alike who discovered a simple yet effective method of visual storytelling.
