Although not part of the contest, but still tied to Anime Music Videos, new this year to Anime North will be the dedicated AMV Room.
The room will be running AMV related programming all weekend long and will include themed AMV blocks, panels and events such as AMV Mortal Combat, The AMV Gameshow, AMVs that inspired us to buy the Anime, Top 20 AMV Countdown, Beginners / Advanced panels and Super Happy AMV Time Go! 1.6
We also have a block set aside Saturday late morning / early afternoon called "AMV Creator’s Spotlight" This gives a chance for attending creators to show off some of their works and make some brief comments about them. Each slot in the block will be 15 to 20 minutes long (depending on how many creators respond). If you're interested in a time slot, PM me here on the forums or send a e-mail to email@example.com
and we can send you more information on the slots available.
