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 11 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.)

The format of the Film Fest is changing this year. We will be screening a retrospective of the eleven ‘Best of Show’ entries since the Film Fest began in 2007. There will be no need for a vote. All eleven of these winners are very special! 

Immediately following the Film Fest screenings, join us for wine & cheese in the adjacent Fireside Room. While you sip your wine and savor the gourmet cheeses personally selected by our DVMUG Food SIG Leaders, enjoy a Q & A (question and answer) panel with our trophy winning film makers. This is your opportunity to meet the creators and glean some excellent photographic and video tips.

The Film Fest kicks off at 7pm on Tuesday, August 21st at the Peacock Theater in Rossmoor. Admission is free.

This Week at DVMUG 08-18-2018

This Tuesday we have the annual DVMUG-Rossmoor Film Fest. A lot of members have put a lot of time in to make this event happen so please show your support by attending.

Immediately following the Film Fest screenings, join us for wine & cheese in the adjacent Fireside Room. While you sip your wine and savor the gourmet cheeses personally selected by our DVMUG Food SIG Leaders, enjoy a Q & A (question and answer) panel with our trophy winning film makers. This is your opportunity to meet the creators and glean some excellent photographic and video tips.

If you have a Mac with problems, then call Rick Calicura at (925) 228-4992 for an appointment for Saturday’s MacClinic, and DVMUG’s staff of experts will help fix or upgrade your computer. Be sure to call early, if you’d like an appointment for this Saturday. The MacClinic is a free clinic; however, donations are gratefully accepted to help support the club.

 


 

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 Pacheco 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.
