Olive was filmed on a Nokia N8 cellphone and thus may democratize the movie industry by making it more accessible to creators.

Olive is the first feature film shot using only a Nokia N8 cellphone adapted with a high-resolution 35mm camera to achieve depth of field. The film retains the high-quality you would expect from a cinematic film and features beautifully shot scenes. Not only is Olive the first film to be shot on a smartphone, but it's also the first independently financed feature film to be screened in more than 2,000 theaters across the U.S.

The cast of Olive includes Academy Award nominated actress Gena Rowlands and also a cameo appearance by Randi Zuckerberg, former Head of Communications at Facebook. The film follows a 10-year-old girl who comes to Earth to transform the lives of three characters without speaking a word aloud.
