Free software... and film
V. Sasi Kumar <sasi.fsf at gmail.com> informs the FSF-Friends (Free Software Foundation India list) that the International Film Festival of Kerala is scheduled from December 9 to 16, 2005.
Says Sasi: "Films will be screened at various venues at Thiruvananthapuram. The Kerala State Chalachitra Academy has agreed to provide space for displaying Free Software, with emphasis on those related to the visual media, and some posters. We are planning to do this in co-operation with SPACE [Society for Promoting of Alternatives in Computing and Education]. We also plan to distribute handouts on FSF and SPACE, and also some literature related to Freedom/Free Software. We are getting some CDs ready that could be sold at a nominal price."
Sasi points out that it "would be nice" if someone with some working knowledge of some of the applications like Blender, Cinelerra, Ktoon, etc. comes forward. Free Software already has some great tools out there.
