MMIF is happy to announce a unique collaboration with MetaMeets for 2011: Europe’s premier 3D-Internet & Virtual Worlds Conference!

MetaMeets 2011 will be happening during the same days as MMIF and at the same venue in Amsterdam: Club Karlsson. MetaMeets in the daytime, MMIF at night (friday & saturday).


Club Karlsson is located in Amsterdam on the top floor of the Netherlands Media Art Institute (NIMk). At Keizersgracht, one of the most beautiful canals in The Netherlands.

Both events need separate ticket reservations: MMIF tickets are free, MetaMeets tickets are not for free.

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!

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.
