Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In case you have not heard already, I was recently appointed as the  
Director of Programming for the inaugural edition of the New Media  
Film Festival.  The event takes place in Los Angeles this June.

Here is our official website: http://www.newmediafilmfestival.com

I certainly hope you can attend as well as submit your latest films,  
videos, and other dazzling audiovisual content. The official  
announcement for the festival is below.

Best, Noel

P.S. You can use the promotional code NM254 to get $5 off the  
submission fee.

The New Media Film Festival (NMFF) spotlights stories worth telling.  
We are looking for films that exemplify the power of the cinematic  
arts to inspire and transform. The festival celebrates innovative and  
imaginative visual work that can make audiences laugh, cry, think, and  
go beyond the ordinary.

In its inaugural year, NMFF will exhibit a selection of both short and  
long-form works that exhibit a strong personal vision combined with  
the highest standards of creative excellence and technical  
achievement. The films will be judged by a jury of notable film  
executives who will award a $10,000 grand prize of goods and services  
from Big Vision Studios (http://www.bigvision.com). All finalists also  
will be viewed by distributors for possible online, theatrical, or  
broadcast distribution.

Last but not least, any filmmaker who submits their work to the NMFF  
will receive FREE producer software ($89 value) from Showbiz Software (http://www.showbizsoftware.com
