Hi Fellow Vloggers: I'm assisting ManiaTV! with their 2nd Annual LIVE Internet Film Festival this year and wanted to pass the word onto the videoblogging group about this new film festival. I suggested creating an additional category for vloggers, but it was to late for this year - it will have to be slated for next years festival. In anycase, if you have a short film to submit...you can check out the site at www.maniatv.com.
