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.
