Australian International Experimental Film Festival

Pity about their website but old school DIY is alive and well. The Australian International Experimental Film Festival is up and running. Pretty clear set of regulations to enter (but since they use frames I can’t actually provide you with the url, “hello 1997 my old friend”) so there’s experimental film, video and expanded cinema. Interestingly all will be converted to QuickTime for presentation. So, where’s the international festival, heck, the local festival, for video that doesn’t treat the audience as mere viewers?

Video Vortex 5

VV05 is on for November 20 and 21 in Brussels this year. Hosted by the Cimatics festival. This will be the event where they try to move Video Vortex into a more formal organisation, be good to get to this for this reason alone, but doubt I have the money in the budget, let alone the week of time flying to Europe and back actually requires.

Last Wednesday

the big coffee
On Wednesday’s I go in to the office. This is when I have supervision meetings with everyone, and I need to be out of the house as my very lovely mother in law comes and looks after the vibrant, vivacious and occasionally vicious (well, tantrumesque) three year old. So I stopped by the current coffee supplier near work and decided to finish some reading in there – I knew I could get more reading done there than in my office – and I ordered a large latte. What was I thinking? It came in a large brown cup come mug, larger than Texas screaming Starbucks grande schmonde all over it.

I thought I was saving time, getting a big coffee now and then I wouldn’t go out later in the day for another coffee. Never again. Might as well have been decaf soy with two sugars too just to really rub it in.
