This year, VIDFEST has been moved from the traditional time slot of mid June, to late September – a strategic move to perhaps free up more summer time for all of those other conferences, and to place the festival leading into the Vancouver International Film Festival, which runs at the end of September and into October.

There are some “in-house” writers contributing regularly on VIDBLOG, but every so often you may see a guest appearance by bloggers, technologists and other industry folks, blogging about anything under the sun. Well, within the realm of technology, the internet, gaming – all things digital media, we’ll say.

VIDFEST is a world premiere event that is organized by New Media BC every year and sponsored and attended by people in the technology sector from around the world.

You can find out what is on the slate for the festival in 2007 on the schedule, and you can also register online (tickets on sale starting in JULY).

The PanelLast night I sat on a panel for an event organized by New Media BC, in conjunction with Wired Woman and Bell Canada, and was fortunate enough to have 3 brilliant and successful women in the digital media sector in Vancouver sitting next to me: Emma Payne from At Large Media, Kiana Mohseni from EA and Jennifer Ouano of Elastic Entertainment.

We were brought together to speak to a room of about 30, mostly women, and share our professional experiences, our successes and challenges, the trends we’ve observed and to discuss ways in which the technology sector could become more attractive and less of an intimidating space for women.

All of the attendendees participated and generated some good convo, ideas, and inspiration. It was nice to connect with people who’ve “gone before”, who have experienced a ton to share with those who would like to jump into technology and into being a cool geeky woman in technology!

Find out more about these types of professional events through the New Media BC events page and Wired Woman.
