London International Documentary Festival 2008
- A Conversation in film


PocketVisions is calling for film submissions for the expanded London International Documentary Festival (LIDF) - A Conversation in Film, 2008. The festival is presented in association with the London Review of Books, and with the support of the British Museum. 2008 sees a continued association with The Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival (New York).

The LIDF will run for 6 days between Monday 31st March, and Saturday, April 5th, 2008. The opening and closing night gala screenings and reception will take place at the British Museum. Other venues include the Barbican Centre, the Curzon Soho, the Renoir Cinema and the Roxy Bar and Screen.

The call for submissions goes out to an international field of applicants. All successful applicants will be invited to be present at the LIDF. We are looking to support new and innovative filmmaking talent, and to ask filmmakers to participate in a series of intertwining ‘conversations’ to be run alongside the screenings. These ‘conversations’ will involve academics, journalists, policy-makers, NGOs, and other cultural commentators.

The LIDF is calling for documentary films produced between January 1st 2006 and December 6th 2007, and is particularly, although not exclusively, interested in films that fall within the following categories:

* Environment
* Human Rights
* Memory/history
* Ethnography/anthropology
* Politics/Philosophy/Economics
* Heritage and the Arts
* Other social and development issues

Submission Procedure: Film-makers can enter their films, pay entry fees and find out how to submit their DVD or VHS preview copy at

Once the on-line submission has been made entrants will receive a confirmation email and a unique Entry Reference Number.

Deadline for Submissions: 6th December 2007
Late entries accepted until 30th December with penalty (see regulations). Films can only be returned if the ‘return fee’ is included in the submission.

Selected films from the LIDF will be automatically submitted for selection to the Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival, November 2008.

For further information or questions see the official LIDF web-site: or email:

We look forward to seeing your films.

Dok Leipzig, 29.10 - 04.01, I will be commuting most of that week between Berlin and Leipzig, by car, several times. The drive is a bit over 2 hours each way. If one or two people would like to join me and can share in the costs, please contact me by email and I'll call you. Thanks!

Hi Soo Kim,

I don't have anyone to recommend, unfortunately, but I did work as an editor at an Architecture magazine here in Toronto that takes a huge interest in sustainable architecture. They run a Green issue every year and it's thoughtful. Really parses what we mean by green and doesn't seem to be after the ad dollard like a lot of publications. If you would like me to pass on the name of an editor there for a potential interview, I'd be happy to do so. Best of luck in your search!
