Prince Edward Island's government, through TechPEI, has confirmed that the Baddeck International New Media Festival will be held in the island province this year. The festival, the new media industry's pre-eminent event, will be held October 17-19 at Rodd's Brudenell River Resort in Roseneath. Telefilm Canada and the CBC have confirmed their participation as sponsors. The event has been renamed the International New Media Festival, and an updated web site is now online. Canadian NEW MEDIA reported last week that the move from Nova Scotia was made necessary when Enterprise Cape Breton Corp., a Crown corporation, backed out of funding the event this year (CNM, Aug. 21/02). In related TechPEI news, the province's new Atlantic Technology Centre will be officially opened on September 8. More details.
