SuperMeets are gatherings of Final Cut, Adobe, Avid, Autodesk, editors, gurus, digital creatives and filmmakers from throughout the world who use or want to learn to use Macintosh-based workflows. SuperMeets started as a grassroots movement to connect Apple FCP Editors at a local level. Now in its 11th year, the producers behind the SuperMeet have harnessed the energy of local chapters globally and turned SuperMeets into the industry's most influential user-organized series of global events. SuperMeets are held annually in San Francisco, Las Vegas, London, Amsterdam and Boston. The SuperMeet agenda usually includes local and industry filmmaker show and tells, digital video tips and tricks and user-driven workflows and world premiere announcements of new hardware and software. Also featured is the SuperMeet Digital Showcase with vendors and small developers providing workflow solutions and an Open Screen Theater for digital filmmakers and content creators to network, screen content and collaborate.
