Machinima/filmfestival MMIF-2010. In Second Life and at the "Planet Art" in Amsterdam

The MaMachinima festival "MMIF 2010", is a celebration of "Machinima": a cinematic art form, created in virtual worlds and in videogames.

It was a global gathering of machinimathographers, with public screenings of machinimas in cyberspace and in the physical world, The Netherlands.

It was the second annual MMIF machinima filmfestival in 3D cyberspace / Second Life, and with screening in a "real" physical space. This time at the Artspace + Medialab "Planet Art" in Amsterdam.

More than 50 machinimas were shown.

The seven hour marathon could also be followed on the web, via livestream broadcasts.

There were more than 140 avatars gathered at the sims at the same time.
