If you want to take part in a film festival but have developed some strange allergic reaction to reality, there's hope for you yet. A resident of the virtual world Second Life is hosting a virtual film festival and asking people to create a short film honoring Ed Wood. The contest starts tomorrow and the virtual films created for a virtual world will be screened on Halloween. Those who wish to participate will use the Machinima game engine to create their masterpieces. In my experience the only thing worse than an Ed Wood movie is one that tries to emulate Ed Wood, but who knows, these could be entertaining.
