VividCon is intended for anyone who enjoys fannish vids - watching
them, talking about them, or making them. As interest in vids has
grown, cons have been accommodating longer vidshows and adding
vid-watching and vid-making panels to their schedules, yet there never
seems to be enough time to discuss all the different facets of vids in
VividCon aims to fill that vacancy. We welcome all vid genres: gen,
adult, het, slash, anime, experimental... If you like vids, you want to
be at this con.
We have a dedicated vidshow room and vidshows going throughout the
convention, as well as a mix of panels for both vidders and
vid-watchers, for both newer and more advanced vidders. And as well as
our Saturday-night premieres vidshow, we will once again be having our
Friday night dance party, Club Vivid. In addition, the VividCon vid
library has a wide range of DVDs available, including DVDs of previous vidshows from the con, that attendees can sign out to
watch in their own rooms (attendees will need to bring a DVD player or computer, which can be hooked up to the new hotel TVs).
