Video Coverage of the Machinima Interactive Film Festival

Video coverage of the Machinima Interactive Film Festival for Examiner by Peter Tieryas and Angela Xu:

The Machinima Interactive Film Festival (MIFF) is everything you'd want in a festival; innovative, entertaining, and provocative. What makes these movies so interesting is that they push the definition of what constitutes a film. Each viewing is a different experience and there doesn't necessarily need to be a traditional moral or arc. They take slices of contemporary culture and produce their own spin in Warhol fashion, though with a lot more action as in a live action Street Fighter: Fractured Illusion with its fast-paced combat, or an absolutely brilliant Mario Freerun, interpreting Mario in the real world with its taut, death-defying, acrobatic leaps. Even the experimental music video, TV Moms by Awkward Kids, gives us a real-life Marge Simpson with real blue hair that causes viewers to reevaluate and reexamine this popular cultural icon from a different slant.
