The Firefox Flicks video contest is back and it is putting up an incredible grand prize: the once-in-a-lifetime chance to work with top Hollywood talent.

Last year Mozilla announced that the Firefox Flicks competition focuses on privacy & security, on issues that affect a user’s online life, and on what makes Firefox and Mozilla unique. The global video competition is back and this year the focus falls on a single category: the power of mobile.

Enter Firefox Flicks, a global video contest about the power of mobile, and inspire others to get mobilized,” says the competition’s official presentation. “This year there's only one category, so whether your flick is funny or serious, animated or live action, we want to see it. It just has to be 60 seconds or less and get people excited about the future of the Web on mobile.”
