iMovieFest.com has recently opened its doors to the public filmmaking community. The site is an outlet for amateur filmmakers using Apple editing and filmmaking products including iMovie and Final Cut Pro. The site features member submitted movies and short films, and is also a resource for tutorials and other discussion areas. According to iMovieFest.com:
iMovieFest.com, a new Web site community for Mac users, gives creative outlet to amateur filmmakers around the world. iMovieFest.com makes it easy for anyone with a video camera and a copy of iMovie(TM) or other Mac video-editing software to show off their movies online. The site gives everyone a chance to showcase their digital movies and receive ratings, reviews, and real-time movie statistics in return.
Basic membership at iMovieFest.com is free and not only gives filmmakers the ability to share movies with the world, the site also offers free sound effects, iMovie tutorials, filmmaking resources, and active forums for itis members. The site also offers an optional VIP upgrade where filmmakers can show an unlimited number of movies on the site, along with other VIP perks. In late August, iMovieFest.com will release the details of their first Mac filmmaking contest for its members. The site also has plans to offer video hosting this fall.
You can find more information about the new film community at the iMovieFest.com Web site. Memberships to the site are available for free.
