Welcome to SIFF the editor in chief for the SIFF Buzz. I will be here, along with an awesome team of reporters and staff, to bring you all of the important information you need for a successful season at SIFF.

This issue is simply for promotional purposes. We wanted to be sure that everyone knows what they can expect in the coming season, especially those who are new to SIFF. As always there will be plenty of fun for everyone, not just machinima makers so be sure to join in on the action. Battle of the Bands is already underway, and as of July 1st the film makers can start submitting their films for the playbill. Exciting times! Thank you for dropping in for a peek at our preview issue. I look forward to brining you all of the SIFF action in our weekly Buzz starting in August. (a figment of Minraed’s imagination)

We are looking for fans of SIFF to share a few words about your SIFF experience. Email us at and provide a full body photo of your sim on a white background and a few words that you would like to share. We would love to hear from you.

Silliness Inspired by my totally random screenshot of my Sim bartending at a new SIFF venue build in progress, I thought “we need an official SIFF Cocktail!� If you have a creative inner bartender and you can come up with a creative SIFF cocktail or mocktail (nonalcoholic beverage) then email It to us at and we will find some fun way to feature it.

We are in the process of building a better connection between voice actors and Sims machinima makers.
