Festival organizer Chantal Harvey and her team have done an excellent job creating an amazing venue for the festival, preseting an interesting and inspiring collection of machinima artwork.

From the offical press release:

MMIF 2010′ is the second edition of an annual film festival in 3D cyberspace with a screening in physical space (‘RL’). A seven hour movie marathon with a two hour afterparty. MMIF 2010 can also be followed on the web via live stream broadcasts.
The MMIF is a celebration of ‘Machinima’: a new cinematic art form, created with virtual worlds and video games. On 3D Internet platforms like Second Life®, any kind of movie sets can be build for very low costs. The MMIF aims to bring machinima to a wider audience, online – and offline. Machinima artists from all over the world are present in real time at the virtual MMIF Theatre. They present over 50 short films and have talks with other machinimatographers and an international audience

The festivals will show creative work of over 40 artists. For a total of 7 hours the movies are screened in both Second Life and Amsterdam. I'm proud to be part of that event. My recent movie 'the Graveyard' will be screened in the track from 5 pm - 6 pm PST (2 -3 am CET, Sunday) hosted by Phaylen Fairchild. Hope to meet you there.
