why would either change its name as they are both well established (hence the great merger.)

Will be in May 2003. We will make an official announcement probably around the time of the 3D Festival in Oct. There's so much to prepare in the meantime.

Thanks for the support.

Looks like I'll have to make sure I'm in London on those days. I missed it last year, don't want to miss out on the Spiderman or Monsters Inc classes!

I was somewhat shocked to see the entry fee for LEAF 50 + vat tax. Converted to U.S. dollars, that is nearly $100, three times that of nearly every festival out there. They also ask for digital beta PAL, rather than the standard VHS. Does anyone know why this is?

Howabout because they are in the UK, and outside of Northamerica, I don't think anyony one uses NTSC VHS, so theres why its PAL, ad Digital BETA since it looks way better. I mean /VHS is the most horrendous video quality out there, I still don't get why Sony let Beta get beaten out by such a lousy technology.

How about... Pal makes sense. Digital Beta does not. Nearly all festivals ask for Beta SP or Digital Beta or Mini-DV as a SCREENING format, not as a SUBMISSION format. Ninety-nine percent of the festivals out there realize that submitting an entry on a format as expensive as Digital Beta is prohibitive, especially when one considers they do not return the entry. Most festivals don't return the submission tape (always VHS) but will return the screening tape (usually Beta SP.) If LEAF was asking for Digital Beta as a screening format, that is a different story. (Perhaps I am mistaken - I hope I am.)

Of course, all of this is exacerbated by the fact that the entry fee is three times that of the standard festival entry fee. In fact, most European festivals require no fee at all. If LEAF's point is to discourage non-commercial entries, then this whole picture makes sense. However, there is no mention of this.

So again I ask: Does anyone know why this is?

I think a 39 quid (dont have a 'quid' key on my keyboard :) ) entry fee is a bit high,
let alone 195 for exhibition entry.
The price will probably hold off students from going. (at least, i'm not ready yet to pay 234 for exhibition/festival entry, plus 100 euros transport/hotelroom ). The planeticket is almost the cheapest part of the journey (only 50 euros)
It would be nice if there was to be a special student offer.

As it stands now, i'm not going to enjoy any fish/chips/cup'o-tea (bad food/worseweather)

:(

nice initiative though.
