http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gifI take it it's 35mm film reel?
Sounds interesting. If a piece gets selected and shown at the festival, do we get tickets to go and attend? If so, you'll find that the entire community will submit their stuff!

Looking forward to it.

Yes you will be able to see your film if it is Officially selected for the 2006 competition.
What other film festivals have you submitted to?

Sorry, I should have clarified. If we get tickets TO FLY to Australia to see your own film, you'll get serious interest! I personally haven't submitted any to other film festivals. Stuff on this forum isn't really film festival standard mainly because the copyright issue is not properly resolved. For starters, none of us do 3-D modelling or animation, and we all use the same off-the-shelf graphics engine (i.e. this flying game). As for music, 99% of films use commercial stuff that we haven't paid copyright for.

If you accept entries as "machinema", i.e. an assumption made that commercial games are used, then people might qualify. Otherwise, 3-D animators will be up in arms if we could qualify for general CGI competition!

I'm relatively new here so I don't want to speak on behalf of the forum, but I think my view is not too inaccurate. There is one project, however, called Faith Hope and Charity which is a little more sophisticated in all departments (I heard they do their own music!), and they might be interested in submitting to Film Festivals.

We look forward to seeing lead actors/actresses, directors and producers of each officially selected film here in Melbourne for the MMVI Australian International Film Festival.

We have confirmed news that Oscar nominated directors, winner of the Grand Jury prize at he Rome Film Festival and a lead member of the creative team of Harry Potter will be attending the festival for its 2006 competition.

The festival will be subsidising flights and accomodation for selected film makers.

We accept virtually every form of the linear moving image including Machinema.
It is an objective of the Australian International Film Fetsival to encourage the growth of the cinematic form across a plethora of different mediums.

We look forward to the seeing the exciting works of mew media and traditional story telling from great artists around the world.

Hi, Aron. A couple of questions for you...

How much is the price of submitting a film? I can't tell from your Web site.

Would it be possible to submit a film in time for the deadline and then later update the submission after more post-production work has been completed on it? Other film festivals will allow that. If so, what would the cut-off date be for the final version?

I noticed a number of 'best' award categories. Which one(s) include the 35mm print prize?

Should DVD entries be in NTSC or PAL?

Just curious: How did you learn of the movie forum at this site?

Thanks.

Well, glad to see representatives actively searching for machinima entries. There are certainly a large number of talented producers using various digital media around, not to mention a few around these parts!

Hopefully there may be some entries from our community http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
