Default Avatar Communities Film to be shown at the RoB Knox Film Festival

Some of you may recall that last year this forum teamed up with Avatar-Forums to make a film together about the need to look after our planet. The film was called Our Only Home. Besides ending up on You Tube we also managed to get it available on iTunes and also an App made for the iPhone/iPod/iPad.

Well earlier this year I entered it into the Rob Knox Film Festival. The majority of you well probably not know who Rob Knox was. He was an actor who played Marcus Belby in Harry Potter. He's the guy on the far right on the picture below:


Sadly he was murdered in 2008 defending his brother from a knife attack. So to honor his memory a film festival was set up. One of the categories in the festival was 'community'

So what more fitting than to enter Our Only Home; a community film project that was made by 20 people from two Avatar community forums who represent nine different countries.

Well, this evening I received an email from the event organisers saying that there had been over 200 entries to the film festival. However for the event only 50 had been chosen to be screened as part of the festival. The wonderful news is that one of those films that will be shown is Our Only Home!:nparty:

It will be screened at the New Generation Church, Bexley Heath, London on 31st May. More info here.

Just had to share the news with you all :nsmile:

Irayo, HotG. Yeah, congrats to all, CyanRachel.

This really was a wonderful cross community project with the good folks on AF and here. It grew beyond what I ever imagined...and all because of Avatar.

It may sound obvious but it really could not have been made without those aysmukan sė aysmuke who placed their trust in someone they had never met and also each other to produce a community film with something to say. Irayo to all of you and those who were unable to take part but lent their support.

I hope all who took part in the project felt they gained from it. I know I did and the part I cherrish the most are the new good friends I made along the way. It uplifted my soul in a way I did not know was possible hence the reason for the words in my sig below.

Oel ngati kameie,

Alan
