If anyone is doing red carpet pictures we need them sent to us by the end of the weekend (end of the day on May 20).

Season 17 Voting

Season 17 voting is now up. Sorry for the delay. We really hoped to get it up on time but migraine headaches happen. Because of the delay, voting has been extended for a couple days.
As always, you will need to be signed into your Google account. We have double an triple checked this time around that everyone will only be able to vote once. We have also added the technical merit awards to the voting page this season. Although we do have judges for this, we have opened it up for the general public. If you want to vote in the Tech Merit awards, you must be willing to have your email address attached to your votes and have watched all of the machinimas. There is more information on the voting page.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask here, email us at or contact us on Discord.

So…we’ve decided to extend things out a month. The new dates are as follows:


Backstage Pass: Insider Magazine and Other Updates

Everything has been a bit behind (and by a bit, I mean a lot), yet again. Allergy season illness kicked my butt yet again. Anyway, since we have an awesome staff now, I was able to teach someone the ins and outs of the website where it can be updated in my absence. I know, I know, it’s about time. Please check the playbill to make sure we have everything correct and we’re not missing anything.
Now, on to Insider magazine. We have decided that we are going to do two issues a season. The first being the issue that has all the information in it that is needed for the season and the second will be the issue with the winners in it. Everything else that you would normally find in the magazine will be on the website, this means interviews and magazine columns like FilmTalk and Fanboy/Fangirl. Sadly, there …

The Sims International Film Festival was created in 2010 as a way to foster creativity in The Sims community through machinima, an art form that uses video game footage to make movies. Over the years, as new entries in The Sims franchise were released and new editing methods became available, we’ve seen a lot of changes, but one thing has remained constant: our commitment to showcasing the creativity of this community and inspiring new artists.
