I’m the Director for New Media Programming at the CT Film Festival in Danbury, CT and I wanted to see if any Drupal demonstrators would like to teach a workshop at his/her discretion. We have a speaker doing a Social Media 2.0 Workshop as well as a CMS overview with Drupal, Joomla and WordPress.
First off, our independent festival is 6 years old and quickly growing. We are unique in that we are an 8-month traveling festival within the state, providing weekend and weekday performances at universities and theaters and then ending with a weeklong series of events in early May (over 300 films, workshops, performances and parties).
Of course, we have the most comprehensive film tax credit in the nation (films, commercials, new media, video games) and our Education Director is the head of the state-funded Film Industry Training Program.
The focus for New Media programs this year is Free Software, Web/New Media, Animation, Music and Advocacy. We are further sharing 1/3 of our curriculum with Film and Education.
Please email and/or call me if you are interested in helping us. The festival is May 4-9 and ours is May 6-9. I will know more at our next meeting about exact scheduling.
We aren’t a rich festival, therefore we cannot pay anyone, but we are only 65 miles from NYC on Metro North and we can cover your hotel room as long as you wish to stay as well as give you an All Access Pass for the week.
Looking forward to chatting.
Director of New Media Programming, CT Film Festival
