The AIM sessions will return. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the AIM sessions, we started them for the last festival. It's a running stream of commentary over AIM (or ichat, or Adium, or whatever instant messaging client we are using) while we watch your film. I think Jack Daniel Stanley described it best when he compared it to MST3k for DVXuser festivals. Here is an example from last fest:
AIM SESSION FOR "THE SMALL MULTIPLE"
That being said, these sessions have been described as pretentious, snarky, and my favorite - too cool for school. We will make fun of the most asinine details of your film, and if we can't find anything wrong with your film, like a politician, will immediately revert to personal attacks, like "Mark Harris' hair smells like a wet dog" or "Don't trust Norm Sanders, he lives really close to Canada". But in the end, we will try to offer some constructive criticism to make it worth your time.
We experienced a giant failed experiment last festival by not asking before we did some of these, so, to avoid that mistake, AIM sessions will be done BY REQUEST ONLY, and will be done in order of requests on this thread. Please only request a session if you are certain you will finish a film for twilightfest.
John LaBonney jumped the gun and PM'ed me, requesting a session, so he gets the dubious honor of being numero uno.

I would like an AIM session."You'd better cure all those personal problems that might be holding back something you want to say." -John Cassavetes

Stuff like this makes me wonder if we shouldn't start creating a section (and maybe even a prize) for Critics in the fests.
Just cover all areas... Our own little virtual hollywood
