I am a volunteer with the Connecticut Film Festival, Interactive and New
Media component.   Our festival, in its 6th year, this being the 2nd year of
the Interactive and New Media component, is looking for presenters for
workshops and panels.  The festival is May 4-9, with the Interactive
component on May 7,8,9, Friday to Sunday, in Danbury CT, located about 60
miles from New York City.  Our theme this year is "Connections Multiplied".
We have a strong focus on free and open source software for creative
professionals.  I think GIMP would be an excellent fit because of its use in
film, illustration, and design.  We already have presenters lined up for
Blender and Celtx, and representatives from the FSF and EFF.  We want this
festival to be a way for developers and users of these tools to connect with
each other, as well as educate the larger public about their existence,
usefulness, and importance.

If anyone with extensive user, development, and/or training/presentation
experience with GIMP is interested in being a presenter please contact me at
joea...@gmail.com to discuss further.   We can provide hotel accommodations,
and have limited funds to reimburse travel, so we would prefer someone based
in the north east USA if you need travel reimbursement.

I would also like to extend an invitation to our conference to all the
members of this list.  Please feel free to pass on this message to anyone
whom might be interested.
