Hello !

I'm living in Lisbon, in Portugal and I'm starting a documentary movie called "Learning to count" about a democratic innovation called "Participatory budgeting".

We are looking for some support, since we don't have yet anyone in the team really able to contribute to Popcorn.js

I've just seen that a popcorn workshop few weeks ago in Barcelona. But I was wondering if any of you were aware of anything in Europe in the next months. I'm really interested into organizing/being part of hackathon in june.

One of our perspective is carrying on this project next year with more youngsters involved. We've made a short video for a crowfunding campaign : http://vimeo.com/57984836

We are shooting until december in Europe, mainly in France, Portugal and the UK and we are looking to develop a webnative project with a collaborative platform ( we want our documentary to be open source with pictures or videos from local communities thanks to free workshops and using free code). One model would be Land of opportunity...

Thank you for your consideration.
