 ‘MMIF 2011′ is the third edition of an annual film festival in 3D cyberspace with an interactive cinema screening in physical space (‘RL’). Audiences can follow some of the MMIF happenings live via the web.
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.
 Free entrance at Club Karlsson, however tickets are required. Reservations must be made via http://MMIF.org . The amount of tickets at the door is very limited! Full = FULL! 
 
      
This year MMIF collaborates with MetaMeets, a conference about 3D-internet and Virtual Worlds. MetaMeets 2011 will take place on the same dates and location as MMIF, but during day time.
The MMIF is a volunteer-run, non-profit collaboration of MaMachinima with Club KarlssonMetaMeetsMeta.Live.Nu, PLANETART, AviewTV, Ystreams.TV, MetaMixTV, Gallery Fermate and many other volunteers. Special thanks to NIMkDe Balie and Bellissima TV.

20 nov. Protest Day: NETHERLANDS YELLING FOR CULTURE

http://wp.me/p9f2i-jZ

http://NederlandSCHREEUWTomCultuur.nl

Flip your website!

DUTCH GOVERNMENT RAISES TAXES ON ARTS: It was 6% , will be 19%!!!

The planned cuts to arts and culture are totally out of balance!

As expected, the VVD, CDA and PVV parties in the Netherlands have agreed to make deep cuts to government arts funding. Their disastrous new coalition agreement slashes the cultural budget by more than 200 million euros.

The new cabinet’s plans directly threaten the continued existence of countless Dutch cultural institutions. These cuts amount to a quarter of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science’s budget which is only 0.5 percent of the total government budget. ( A bit of motorway…) The arts sector will thus receive a disproportionately hard blow. The result will be a drastic longterm worsening of the artistic and cultural climate in the Netherlands.

Sign the petition protesting the cabinet’s plans on the Stop Culturele Kaalslag (‘Stop Cultural Demolition’) website. More than 60,000 people have signed so far.

18 april: Boom Pearls – Understanding art in online spaces


http://www.boompearls.com/?page_id=332

Press release, talks on Boom Pearls in Second Life


Saturday april 18, at 18 – 21 (gmt+1) four positions for understanding art in online spaces as Second Life (SL) will be presented to discuss how art practice in an online world is part of Real Life (RL) and the art world. The talks is part of the curated series Boom Pearls and can be seen offline at YOUin3d.com, Hannoversche Straße 3, Berlin, and online at Boom Pearls in Second Life, http://slurl.com/SecondLife/Phyllira/169/139/90.

Tommy Støckel and Pernille With Madsen both participate with art projects in Boom Pearls.
Jan Northoff and Joachim Stein both uses SL for media productions without necessarily seeing it as part of the art world.



Tommy Støckel will talk about his practice. For this project he considered how an artistic practice can be carried out in SL, where the content of the virtual world is build by the users. His installation, Primitives Collection Field (2007), consisted of freebies build by other users in SL, thereby focusing on what makes SL different from the rest of the world.


Pernille With Madsens installation Endless Structure (2009), which can still be seen, is inspired of the vertigo experienced in the meeting with reality and different constructions or architecture. The possibility to emerge in her scripted construction is another example of artworks by participating artists who are all new in SL. With Madsen will talk about her projects in and outside SL.

Jan Northoff is one of the two founders of newBERLIN, a true to scale interpretation of the german capital in SL. After working with sculpture and massive installations in Real Life, he created a virtual city with a living community of Citizens Friends and Creators of the online international melting pot. So he also invites artists to catch up with the latest 3D realtime technology and online art scenes.

Joachim Stein will talk about the Terms of Service as basis for practice in Second Life. Stein is an experimental thinker and artist, who challenges concepts of reality, play and work. He improvises and constructs narratives by doing what seems absurd and by using found situations and constellations. In 2007 Stein initiated and helped realize a TV documentary about people’s lives in Second Life. During Ars Electronica 2007 he provided workout, diet and medication plans that helped people achieve their Second Live avatar’s body in real life. In his latest work he used Second Life as a tool for re-enacting and filming of a court trial about a copyright case he had provoked by deliberately using and altering a digital map without permission.

The talks will be documented and can be seen at boompearls.com after a while.
