Do you enjoy making movies with your iPhone? (No, not those kinds of movies.)¬†Well, there’s a new contest going on for all of you budding Steven Spielbergs out there.

The Original iPhone Film Festival is in full swing and is accepting entries from anyone with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Think you have what it takes to win? Hit the jump for contest details and prize information…

A panel of celebrity judges, including music group Maroon 5 and New York Times columnist David Pogue, will decide their favorite videos from 4 different categories. Each entry must be either Fiction, a Brand Film, Non-Fiction, or Music Video.

All submissions must be 3 minutes in length or under (with the exception of music videos which can run up to 4:30). The footage must be shot completely with an iOS device (and yes, they can tell), otherwise it will be disqualified.

Contestants are free to use editing applications and are also free to submit as many entries as they want. Just be sure to avoid using any copyrighted material, as we all know how well that usually turns out.

Festival prizes include an Apple iPad, an Apple TV, several video-editing software titles, and more. The deadline for submissions is September 30th and all entries must be uploaded via the Festival’s website.

So, does anyone plan on entering?
