Throughout these years Prof. Bardosh has been a trendsetting pioneer in many areas of film and television.

Prof. Karl Bardosh has been a pioneer of New Media Film competitions and festivals since 2004 when he became Artistic Director of DIGI24, the first “3minute films in 24 hours” online filmmaking competition in the world in which he already included films shot on cellphones.

Prof. Bardosh has introduced Cell Phone Cinema to India in 2007 at the Asian Academy of Film and Television working with Executive Director Sandeep Marwah and served as the Festival’s Artistic Director each year until 2014.

Prof. Bardosh has been teaching a course of his own design: Cell Phone Cinema at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts since 2009. This was the first University Course about Mobile Filmmaking in the United States if not in the whole world.

For the past 8 years, Prof. Bardosh’s students regularly compete in the “Mobile Bollywood” section of the New York Indian Film Festival, screening their One Minute Cell Phone Films in the Festival’s theater.
