We got word that this morning, September 12, there will be a press conference on the upcoming documentary film "Login 2 Life" directed by Daniel Moshel. Here's the description:
Login 2 Life portrays people who have found an alternate home in an online world. This is the starting point of a journey into fascinating virtual realities, meeting diverse human beings in different parts of the world who have one thing in common – they are savvy in using virtual worlds as an extension of their real lives.
It looks like the film is going to feature, among other folks, the indomitable Gentle Heron, founder of the nonprofit Virtual Ability. While I am skeptical about the focus on virtual sex, Gentle has a very interesting story to tell that I am happy is getting the film treatment.
If you would like to participate in the press conference head to Virtual Ability in Second Life at this teleport link on Monday September 12 at 9am PDT.
"Login 2 Life" will be shown on October 17 on ZDF in Germany and in Austria soon afterwards. No word yet on US or other international screening dates. Perhaps a virtual film opening in Second Life?
