Atopic Festival wants machinima entries

This came in from Xavier Lardy today - it would be good to see some Moviestorm movies in there!

Hi fellow machinimakers !
We are working on setting up the first machinima film festival in France, to take place in Paris, Thursday, October 29 - Wednesday, November 4, 2009, during the Atopic Festival.
The Atopic festival is the art festival dedicated to virtual worlds : International - Multidisciplinary – Transverse. We want to show the machinima as both a new cinematographic genre and a medium for today digital artists.

For this first edition, we plan to have 3 different screenings :
- the first one is about vintage machinima - the one made before real-time video capture and internet broadband access,
- the second one is a retrospective of french machinimas,
- the third one is a about creative machinimas,
- the fourth one is a retrospective of machinimas of the past year (2008-2009),
- the last one is a carte blanche to other machinima film festival !

We are actually selecting movies, and we would like to know if…
- You absolutely want to have one (or more!) of your movies in one (or more!) screenings?
- You believe we absolutely need to show machinimas you may know of !

So you can contact (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to suggest films, with online file or video links. We are aware that some of you would like their creations to be kept secret before the festival, so it’s possible to sign a non-disclosure agreement if you wish.
Please note we have tight deadlines:
- You can send us your film suggestion until Friday the 15th of May.
- The committee will select the machinimas for each screenings until Friday the 10th of July.
- The screening rights will be acquired until Friday the 11th of September.
As a final request, you can help the festival by sending this mail to other machinimakers you may know of !
We hope to hear from you soon!
