DigiFest South: first-ever event seeks volunteers to man desks, changes artist deadline to Aug 10 for event on Sept 7 - 9

DigiFest is shaping up as multi-winged stallion of a fest, participants learned at the DigiFest Forum. First announcement was a bit more time for artists submissions. The new deadline is Aug 10, says Theresa Ratcliff.

The Game Jam, managed by Nolan Baker, will need more than programmers and graphic designers; electronic soundscapers are also needed.

Volunteers to man booths, oversee and maintain displays will be essential to production of a successful fest. James Holoubeck will solicit and organize vols.

Wade McDougal is producing the Phenom Film fest under the aegis of DigiFest. His goal is to screen an allotment of the numerous and worthy indie films being made today that will not make it to a theater.

Clint McCommon and Theresa Ratcliff are sizing up the artists' entries (an example: a digital bed - a sleeping bed - submitted by a student architect) and developing display plans for this first-ever event.

The event will take place at Bossier Civic Center on Sept 7 to 9. More at DigiFest South.
