SimsFilmFest Website Update

Season 13 of SimsFilmFest is nearly over and winners will be announced soon. If you look around the site you will see that things are being cleaned up. The voice actor directory has finally been updated and all the seasons announcements have been deleted.

We are working on redoing the Voice Actor Directory. It took so long to do the updates because it really needs re-coded. Every time we go in to make changes it throws errors and the formatting doesn’t want to take. Until we can get this done, we’ve provided an Issuu document that you can look at on the site (we know this isn’t ideal) and a downloadable PDF document. I’m not sure what happened but when the document was converted to PDF all the hyperlinks were ripped off so apologies are in order. I’m not sure how to fix that but I will work on it.

The original idea of the SimsFilmFest website was to use the blog section here to run articles in place of having a monthly magazine. It was never meant to be used so much for announcements. With that in mind, we would like to find a few people who would be interested in contributing to the site blog providing things of interest to the Sims Machinima Community. Tutorials, general thoughts on making machinima, interviews, etc. It doesn’t matter what you write on as long as it’s related to sims machinima and that you can do it on a regular basis. If you are interested please drop us an email at

We also have up a working forum that we would like to encourage everyone to register to use. Going forward I would like to use the Announcements section of the forum for all festival announcements and keep the blog area open for articles. We would also like to encourage everyone to participate on the site and the forum. Anyone registered on the site can comment on the articles/blog posts. It has been our goal since taking over SimsFilmFest to turn this site into a spot for the Sims Machinima Community, just not a machinima festival website. Now that machinima festival is established we would like to actively work on building and bringing the community together. Please, spread the word and help us achieve that goal. We are also interested in knowing what you would like to see here and we can only do that with your feedback. Let us know what you want.

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.
