Free Flight Seminar Series/Film Fest, March 17th

Postby davidroyer » Fri Mar 05, 2010 3:53 pm

The Free Flight Seminar Series continues. Please join us Wednesday, March 17th, 7:00pm at the Variety Theater, 582 Market St. (at Market & 2nd) downtown San Francisco for the second seminar in the series. The topics being discussed at this seminar include; Vario/GPS instruments, Paraglider Aerobatics, Hang Glider Aerobatics and upcoming Bay Area Paragliding Association events. The film festival begins at 9:00pm and as always, beer & food will be provided. (KEG, need i say more!)

In conjunction with the speakers we plan to have an organized film festival at each event with interested folks submitting a film, 7 minutes or less, which will be evaluated by the audience as well as a panel of judges. All films will be posted on a Norcal Free Flight Film Festival HD Vimeo channel after each event. At year end a final event will be held, the best films will be reviewed and a final winner will be selected.

Please forward this on to all interested videographers, encouraging them to email jose9878 at if interested in participating in the film festival.

Please join us for a fun evening celebrating the norcal free flight communities talent!

ps- there might be some paragliders in the crowd, so bring baseball bats, etc, for protection..
