Connecticut Film Festival - Call for workshops

The Connecticut Film, Music, and Interactive Festival is adding a series on interactive media, with workshops, exhibition space, and panel discussions. We have a heavy focus on open source, independent games, and independent media. I thought Blender as an open source tool for both film and games would make an excellent topic for a workshop.

I was wondering if anyone here might be interested in hosting an introduction to blender workshop. The festival is in Danbury CT, June 2-7, with interactive running June 4-6. Danbury is easily reachable from New York City on Metro North, and we can provide accommodations and possibly air or rail transportation. Presenters will get a free all access pass to the festival.

We also have exhibition space for very reasonable prices, if you have a company or organisation that would be interested in reaching our audience.

The interactive section will be posted there early next week.

Please email me at [email protected] if you are interested.

Below is our request for proposals.

The CT Film Festival is looking for presenters for workshops in digital and electronic media. Our main themes are “create” and “share”, as we hope to encourage creativity, collaboration, and community using digital and electronic media. If you have expertise in these areas we would like to hear from you about what ideas, tools, and techniques you can share to help others get started with or improve their knowledge and skills in creating and sharing.

Here are just a few ideas of what we are looking for.


  • Digital video production and editing
  • Graphic design and illustration
  • Web design and interactivity (Flash, AJAX, etc)
  • Game design and development
  • 3d modeling and animation
  • Software design and development
