The recent versions of iMovie are a little crazy ('08 and '09), sometimes projects appear to disappear, to find your project got to the Movies folder and then the iMovie Projects folder.

If it's not there then you probably accidentally deleted it and follow rj713's advice. If you discover other files missing and are sure you didn't delete it, verify your drive. Your Hard Drive could have issues.

The Gremlins that used to haunt bomber pilots during WW II have now moved into computers of young Mac users. They move things around while you're asleep and delete important files. Here's some information on them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gremlin

Try the Find function from your desktop located in the upper left pull down from File next to the Apple at the top of screen and type in the name of the lost file to see where you moved it to..

why do they have to hit me and other young Mac users?

We did this because we had enough of windows

The light only comes on when they go to the bathroom or are looking for something to eat. They don't bother with Windows machines because those machines have all the problems built in.
