So, you like fanvids? VividCon is the first (and longest-running ) convention devoted solely to vids and the practice of vidding. We welcome anyone who would like to view or talk about fannish vids for an entire weekend, be they experienced vidders, vidding newbies, or casual vidwatchers! (Note: We are not associated with VidCon and/or the adult film industry. Alas.)
What the con is like: Our programming includes theater-style volunteer-curated vidshows, panels on vids and vidding, a rockin’ four-hour vid dance party called Club Vivid, and opportunities for attendees to submit their brand new vids to be shown on the big screen. VividCon is a small convention with a core of loyal attendees, but every year brings in tons of new faces and ideas! All genres of vids are welcomed and discussed, including gen, het, slash, anime, live-action, experimental, and more.
Where VVC is and how you can attend: This year, VividCon will be held August 8-10 at the SpringHill Suites Chicago O’Hare hotel in Chicago, Illinois. Attending memberships are still available and include admission to the convention and a DVD set of the premiering vids from the con. (All attendees must be 18 or older.) Most members stay in the hotel for a special con room rate (no more than four people per hotel room, please) — details will be announced in May. If you aren’t able to attend the con, you can also purchase a supporting VividCon membership which includes a DVD set, copy of the program book, and online streaming access to vidshows during the convention weekend and for several weeks afterward.
