Our presenter for the June General Meeting will be Jason Snell. Jason was Editor at Macworld for over a decade, leaving around the same time as their announcement of the end of their print edition. He now runs a site called Six Colors, which provides daily coverage of Apple, other technology companies, and the intersection of technology and culture. 

Jason’s knowledge and experience in the Apple universe are extensive. If you’d like to hear Jason’s insight about the recent Apple WWDC join us at the June General Meeting.

The Diablo Valley Mac Users Group helps Macintosh users get the most out of their computers. Software, hardware, digital filmmaking, photography—these subjects and more are covered in the club’s monthly General Meeting, workshops, and Special Interest Groups.

You are invited to attend our general meetings at the Pleasant Hill Community Center for vendor and club presentations on new hardware, software, and other items of Mac interest. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a Question & Answer segment where you are welcome to ask about your own Mac problems; there’s a break during which the club Mac experts answer your questions one-on-one, and a raffle in addition to the main presentation, usually by a software publisher or hardware manufacturer.

Dues for the entire family are $40 per year-a bargain! Especially since it includes access to the club’s award-winning monthly newsletter, ApplePRESS, and attendance at all Special Interest Group meetings including the monthly MacClinic, where club experts diagnose and repair what’s wrong with your Mac as well as helping you with software upgrades, hard-drive replacement, and similar improvements.

Previous Film Fest Awards and Videos

Lights! Camera! Action! It’s Film Fest Time Again!

If you have been to one of our previous Film Fests at Rossmoor’s luxurious Peacock Room, you already know it is a match for the finest private theater around, with lush soft seats, a grand screen, and a high-quality sound system.

Over the past 12 years, those attending the Film Fest have voted for the ‘Best of Show’ entry, which has been awarded the coveted ‘Jeddo’ trophy. (Initially, the trophy was named ‘Stevie’ after Steve Jobs. It became the ‘Jeddo’ in 2010 in remembrance of Jed Mark, a beloved president of DVMUG.)

Immediately following the Film Fest screenings, join us for wine & cheese in the adjacent Fireside Room.

The Film Fest kicks off at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, August 20that the Peacock Theater in Rossmoor. Admission is free.
