    WorldWide Solstice Festival LIVE!

    in Science

    As THOUSANDS of people across the WORLD take part in the WorldWide Solstice Festival, we'll be sharing and discussing just a few of the FANTASTIC images and news of the events here on this episode of At The Eyepiece. We may also have founders of the WorldWide Solstice Festival, Pamela Shivak and John W ONeal II call in as well and share how their individual outreach events are going LIVE on the air!  


    Have a Solstice Festival, or post solar or solstice related photos! It's that easy!
    Join the SOLARACTIVITY Facebook group for more worldwide events and post up your images!
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/solaractivity/


    Our goal to share our love of all things solar with as many people as possible, to extend our reach, to cross cultural and ethnic lines, to share with the masses. Art, music, good food and good company will bring many more people to us and our telescopes, than an ad in a local paper advertising an astronomy outreach program.

    The festival will encompass BOTH solstice dates. In June, northern hemisphere participants can do outside venues while Southern Hemisphere participants can schedule indoor activities, if weather warrants that. On the December date, we northerners can host indoor or virtual events and presentations while, our southern hemisphere participants can host their WORLDWIDE SOLSTICE FESTIVAL during their local summertime.
    If there is no local festival in your area, clubs and individuals can partner with Metroparks, civic groups and/or business interests to start their own festival. You can invite musicians, bands, artists, crafts people, food vendors, solar power representatives, etc. Let your imagination be your guide! You can partner with Metroparks, Museums, libraries, your local NASA office, etc, etc

    FilmQuest is a brand new film festival for the Fantastic, put on by filmmakers for filmmakers. Heavily associated with FantasyCon (www.fantasycon.com), the festival celebrates all things fantasy, sci-fi, horror and beyond. 


    A competition based festival, FilmQuest accepts submissions for features, shorts, animated films, student films, music videos, fan films, tv/web series, commercials/ads, and screenplays for shorts and features. We also have the unique open competition in FilmQuest Express, while also celebrating the future of filmmaking with two student based competitions.

    We are currently in talks to have the FilmQuest trophy designed by a world renowned company, and we promise the design will be breathtaking. It will surely become one of the most coveted awards on the festival circuit. As well, we are giving away a $5,000 cash prize to the Grand Prize winner, along with $2,500 for 2nd place, and $1,000 for 3rd Place. Many more prizes and awards await too.

    Taking place in Salt Lake City, the first edition of FilmQuest will be held the 30th of June through the 5th of July, 2014.
