Documentary Filmmakers--are you tired of election coverage? Help Current TV change the way traditional media covers our national elections!

We're asking documentary filmmakers to produce a short-form, mini-documentary (3-7 minutes long) about one of the important election issues--environment, economy, healthcare, education, etc. Tell us a personal story about how one of these issues affects you or your loved ones.
If you upload your piece to our website by Dec. 15th, you could be considered to join the Current TV team at the New Hampshire primaries! You'd be one of our paid producers on the ground. Oh, and of course, Current TV could buy your piece to air on our international cable network. So email us at And get those cameras rolling!

THE WALK-ONS by Tim Durham and Aimee Nowland (30 minutes)
College football may be best known for the frenzied competition for top recruits. But what of the local students who want to play for the team? With no full rides offered, these kids work part-time jobs to pay for their tuition. Trampled daily and sold on the hope that after a season or two, they might catch the coach's eye, these walk-ons are not ready to let go of their dreams to go further than the practice field.

MARE IGNOTUM (SEA OF MYSTERY) by Loretta Oleck Berger and Linton Suttner (70 minutes)
It's hard to miss Max Shapiro. Whether on his Harley or showing off his tattoos and pet snake, Max has traveled many lonely roads in his 70 years. But it is the less traveled inner road which most interests his niece as she takes us on a journey to discover more about him and herself in the process.

This program is organized by Adele Schmidt and Erica Ginsberg from Docs in Progress and is co-sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington University.

Hazel Wolf Environmental Film Festival Call for Films!

We're looking for the best in environmental documentaries, narratives, shorts, ad campaigns, PSAs, and new media. We welcome entries related to climate change, consumption, solutions, environmental justice, energy, transportation, sustainable living, food production, wildlife, oceans, rivers, forests, restoration, and other environmental topics. Films addressing social themes with an environmental component will also be considered.

This is our 10-year anniversary; entries that explore how environmental media and messaging have developed over that time (or generally) are also encouraged.

English or English subtitles only. While the maximum length for submissions is 90 minutes with rare exceptions, screening time is limited and shorter pieces may have a better chance of being accepted.

Selected films have the chance to become part of the "Best of Fest," approximately 10 films so honored after the festival based in large part on audience ratings.

By December 15: $25 (reg) $20 (student)
