This has been announced on other blogs, but we've been asked to post it as well just to get the word out.

Cinema Out of Your Backpack is a festival celebrating a new revolution in film-making.
DSLR video cameras, the game changers in the film industry, are creating extraordinary new possibilities for every filmmaker: cinema-quality images shot out of the backpack for a tiny budget. Technology is democratized. Now it's the story that matters, not just the visuals.
