Like a miniature Sundance, except on your computer screen, and no large bald man with a clipboard barring your avatar at the front door, the Avalon Film Festival is a screening of live action and animated shorts streamed directly onto screens on the private island of Avalon. Opening party was today, with films running throughout the week. Acrobat-enabled brochure with the full details here at space think dream, Avalon's official web presence. (Insert obligatory full disclosure: Avalon owner and film festival empresario Fizik Baskerville happens to be a real life pal. Add voluntary partial rationale: Pal or not, an in-world festival conducted with the full participation of the featured filmmakers is a genuine first for Second Life, or for that matter any online world-- hence its mention here.)
