Tickets are now on sale for the third annual Amsterdam FCPUG SuperMeet, to be held on Sunday, 12 September at the Hotel Krasnaplosky. The hotel is located in the heart of Amsterdam, close to the RAI center, which will host IBC 2010, a leading international forum for the electronic media industry, which runs from the 9 to 14 September.
The FCPUG event brings together digital filmmakers from around the world working with Apple, Adobe and Avid creative tools. The user-driven format promises engaging presentations and training by community members and industry leaders.

Attendees can learn about the latest trends in collaborative editing workflows for postproduction and broadcast markets as well as network at the popular party event. A "world famous raffle" will offer thousands of euros worth of filmmaker-related prizes.
The SuperMeet producers have also announced the Amsterdam debut of 'Open Screen Theatre.' Filmmakers and digital content creators will have a 10 minute chance to get seen in an informal setting.
