‘MMIF 2010′ is de tweede editie van een jaarlijks film festival in 3D cyberspace, welke rechtstreeks vertoond wordt in een fysieke zaal (‘RL’). Een zeven uur durende film marathon, met daarna een virtuele afterparty. MMIF 2010 kan ook gevolgd worden via live streams op het web.

Het MMIF is een feest van ‘Machinima’: een nieuwe cinematografische kunstvorm, gecreëerd met behulp van virtuele werelden en computerspellen. Op 3D Internet platformen zoals bijvoorbeeld Second Life®, kunnen allerlei soorten filmsets worden gebouwd, voor een laag budget. Het MMIF heeft onder meer als doel machinima onder de aandacht te brengen bij een breder publiek, zowel online als offline. Machinima regisseurs en avatar acteurs vanuit de hele wereld zullen live aanwezig zijn in het virtuele MMIF theater. Zij presenteren meer dan vijftig korte films en voeren gesprekken met andere ‘machinimatografen’ voor een internationaal publiek.

Het Amsterdamse publiek kan het MMIF evenement live volgen op groot projectiescherm in de PLANETART Medialab Artspace. Men kan eigen laptops meenemen voor interactie met het witte doek. Gratis draadloos Internet en stroom is aanwezig. Gratis entree bij PLANETART, echter toegangskaarten zijn wel vereist:  Tickets kunnen alleen besteld worden via email, zie http://tickets.MMIF.org

Het MMIF is een door vrijwilligers gerunde niet-commerciele organisatie, een samenwerking van MaMachinima met PLANETART , Volkskrantgebouw, Meta.Live.Nu, Pop Art Lab, VMax, AviewTV, Ystreams.TV, Metaworld Broadcasting, MetaMeets, Gallery Fermate, Museum Of The Bohemian, en vele andere vrijwilligers. MMIF 2010 wordt geheel gefinancierd door middel van donaties en giften. Virtueel land wordt gesponsord door Linden Lab®. Initiator van het MMIF is de Nederlandse Filmmaakster Chantal Harvey.

Thanks very much to everybody involved in MMIF 2009: All the volunteers, the participants and the visitors! It was a great success, much busier then we had expected, and overal a great atmosphere in SL as well as in NL!

[Snapshot taken at the MaMachinima Theatre during the screening of … by CallieDel Boa]

Over FIFTY machinima films were screened at MMIF 2009, the average quality was actually quite high and very talented. MMIF participants ROCK!

The Rasta Views sim in SL was almost contineously full for the entire 6 hours of the festival. Some could hardly move because of the lag, at the beginning of the event it was a real issue. The sim limit had to be lowered to 75 avatars by RastaViews sim manager TributeTim Kwak. There were some technical ‘infant illnesses’ with the synchronisation of the machinima for the audience at RastaViews (SL) as well as the audience at PLANETART in Amsterdam (NL) .

For many of the volunteers in the MMIF 2009 organisation, this was the first experience with such a big event. We learned a lot about logistics, software and hardware and so, valuable experiences  we can use for MMIF 2010.

Despite modest publicity, also the public screening at the PLANETART Medialab Artspace in Amsterdam (NL) was full at a certain point, we had to arrange extra chairs last-minute. Some people actually brought their laptop to be even more interactive with MMIF2009, even MMIF 2009 participant Alexicon Kurka unexpectedly showed up ‘in the flesh’ with his laptop computer. All together the athmosphere was very good in SL as wel in NL!

We learned a lot about logistics, and the use software and hardware and so for a cross-reality live event like this. Valuable experiences we can use for MMIF 2010. So we are already looking forward to MMIF in february 2010.

Please join us as a participant, volunteer or organise a simultaneous public MMIF 2010 screening in your city (‘RL’) and contact us please!
