Hey there RT Community! We’ve got some BIG news for you today! It’s the return of RTSQ Presents!
We introduced the RTSQ Presents program a few years ago at RTX as way to help community groups host their own events. The next year, it grew into our first ever grant program, and we awarded five $100 grants to help groups host events at RTX. This year, we’re upping the ante and awarding five $200 grants through RTSQ Presents: Community Events! More details on the program, including how to apply, can be found at http://rtsidequest.org/rtsq-presents.
You may notice we added a subtitle up there – RTSQ Presents: Community Events. Now, why would we do that?
Probably because RTSQ Presents is expanding! Today, we’d like to introduce you to RTSQ Presents: Community Content.
We can’t cover all the details in this news post, but we’ll give you the short version. We were approached by RT community group The Angels with an amazing idea for an event they wanted to host as part of RTSQ Presents. Unfortunately it was too large for the existing program, but we all knew that NEEDED to become a reality. We worked quickly to figure out a way to make it happen, and here we are!
RTSQ Presents: Community Content w/ The Angels is going to be unlike any RT community event we’ve seen before. We’re going to host a showcase of community content on the silver screen at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz the day before RTX! That’s right! YOUR content will be on the big screen at one of the greatest theaters in the world and you’ll watch it while surrounded by tons of your best friends! And it’s a great reason/excuse to have lunch at Alamo Drafthouse!
We’re still working out a few details, but you can find everything we’ve finalized over at http://rtsidequest.org/rtsq-presents. We’d like to stress that this is NOT an awards show, but simply a showcase for RT Community content creators. We want to make sure that this community, which has bonded over a shared love of RT’s content, knows that there are people and groups among us creating really amazing things like podcasts, movies, livestreams, music, and more!
You all probably have TONS of questions about RTSQ Presents and I promise we’ll work to answer them over the next few weeks. We’ll work to compile a FAQ as soon as we can, based on questions sent to us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and the RT site.
Don’t forget to get your tickets to RTX SideQuest while you still can! Also, we’re hoping to have details on submitting items to our RTX SideQuest Cocktail Party and Charity Auction up within the next week or so!
