I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone struck on the idea of a film fest at Burning Man. Luckily for potential attendees, the folks who organized this one have a ton of experience. They're going to need it – the conditions they'll face are unlike those at any other film festival.
I have a ton of notes on this and I'll be writing a longer entry soon, but the festival's call for entries ends tomorrow (Thursday, July 15th) so I wanted to get the word out today. If you have a short film that would be cool to show at Burning Man, now's your chance. Here's the link to submit. There's also an official Facebook page for the festival.
I just got word that the festival will be screening their films on "The Engine," a 1000-pound "light and steel sculpture" that is essentially a portable projection system. Sounds cool.
