You can journey into the wildlands of Montana and beyond this April, with 1010tv and the International Wildlife Film Festival (IWFF) as your tour guides.
is a Web site devoted to providing “high quality entertainment, education, and business video communication on a single Internet location.”
Powered by BOPJET, 1010tvwill highlight the IWFF’s 24th annual event, based in Missoula, Montana, through the IWFF Interactive Channel, which will include live QuickTime Webcasts of the professional seminars for wildlife filmmakers and producers along with the keynote address on Everglades restoration, April 17-21. The channel also features QuickTime movie clips of this year’s award-winning films and snapshots of community events and programs.
With the IWFF’s evolution into a larger entity, the International Wildlife Media Center (IWMC), the non-profit organization expects to focus their program development on creative hands-on wildlife video production courses for all ages, which ideally would travel around the country. In partnership with 1010tv, the IWMC expects to provide dynamic content year-round for the Interactive Channel, such as streaming student productions and news clips.
Meanwhile, the folks at 1010TV are giving away another iMac in their new short movie contest.
“This one’s custom painted and will be given away July 4,” Jim Greer of 1010TV told MacCentral. “In honor of that, we’ve named the iMac Captain Amer-imac-a.”
