The New Media Film Festival® part of the United Nations Millennium Project, was launched as an annual event during the 2009 C3: Center for Conscious Creativity “Immerse in the Future” symposium held in Los Angeles. The festival is the brainchild of media futurist and current president of Select Services Films Inc. Susan Johnston. She saw the need for a unique event specifically catering to new media content artists that would “look at new technologies and how it merges with the story so people can go on the journey the story set out to create.” The result is a film festival that creates “new opportunities outside the norm to bolster creators in media.”
