The MMIF is a celebration of Machinima: films created in virtual worlds and video games. On 3D Internet platforms like Second Life® for instance, any kind of movie set can be built at very low cost. The MMIF aims to bring Machinima, a new cinematic art form, to a wider audience. Films by professional machinima producers and by those who are just starting out will be screened at MMIF 2011. Machinima directors and avatar actors from all over the world are present in real time at the virtual theatre in SL. These ‘Machinimatographers’ will present over fifty short films and discuss their work in front of a live global audience of viewers.
Audiences in Amsterdam can follow the MMIF event live, projected on a big screen in Club Karlsson at Keizersgracht, one of the most famous canals in Holland. Several participating machinimatographers will be present. Visitors can bring their own portable computers to interact with the show on the big screen. Free (wireless) internet and electricity is provided.

The ´DO NOT FEED (Meta.Live.Nu presents DFM RTV INT)’ installation at De Dam square at the Amsterdam sim is continiously attracting attention from various people.
For some reason, quite some people want to get inside the iron cage as well for a moment. Like for example dutch singer/songwriter Coco Xi. Who was very critical about this exhibition by the way, but she was friendly enough to send us this picture, wich she took while she was inside the cage with Ad Breda and Eveline Schoonhoven.

BREAKING NEWS: Black-out [update 2]

A POWER OUTAGE in the area of the Keizersgracht canal in Amsterdam Center since about 12:35 CET.

This electricity problem happened during works of the NUON power company in the area. It is estimated the area will be without electricity till at least 16:00 CET.

The ‘DO NOT FEED’ iron cage on De Dam square in Second Life is empty. Ad Breda And Eveline Schoonhoven are non-existent at this moment.

The whole Netherlands Media Arts Institute is out of electricity, wich offcourse is a disaster for time-based electronic arts! The VideoVortex.2 exhibition was just about to be open for the public again at 13:00 CET.
