In reply to John Burgan's post on Sat 14 Jun 2008 :
I had spoken to the fellow coincidentally on another matter, the same day, after sharing the post. They were offering up to 100 euros a day for 5 days. Not exactly union rates but it's a music fest doc, not SOP...

Brooklyn Documentary Arts Collective Seeks New Resident!

UnionDocs is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit documentary arts collaborative and presentation space. Currently, our primary program is The Documentary Bodega Series, featuring new and challenging documentary film and audio works every Sunday evening in our Brooklyn screening room. The series is produced by the Resident Curators of UDR, the UnionDocs Residency Program for Documentary & Media Studies. We also produce a podcast and blog, featuring short media pieces inspired by discussions at the Documentary Bodega and beyond.

UnionDocs is looking for a new resident starting this summer. The UnionDocs Residency (UDR) combines an excellent and cooperative living situation with an opportunity for immersion in independent cultural production. Six carefully selected people live together in a historic building at a great location and collaborate to produce a festival-quality documentary series in the first floor screening room.

322 Union is a great place to live. It has a lot of shared resources and a lot of opportunity for fun while also having adequate privacy and a comfort (not always found in NYC communal living). There are three floors, a basement, a grassy backyard with a grill and deck, a big second story porch, and skyline views from the roof. The location is close to excellent transportation making most cool spots in Manhattan and Brooklyn within a short subway ride.

The first floor is a commercial space run by the program director. It includes the screening room, 2 studios for working media artists, the UnionDocs director’s office, and access to the basement which has been sound-proofed for music rehearsal and audio recording. Resources on the first floor are readily available to UD Residents outside of the schedule for the Documentary Bodega Series.

On the floors above, there are two nicely-sized three bedroom apartments with a living room, kitchen and bath. Both have wood floors, get lots of light, and were recently renovated. Bedrooms can be locked, but common spaces are shared by the six residents. One is better for cooking large meals and socializing and the other more appropriate for reading, working, and watching films. The common spaces are furnished, so residents need only bring the contents of their bedroom. The building has high-speed internet, a VOIP phone, and washer and dryer.

About $975/month plus deposit. Anticipated grants will help subsidize this.

Please check out our website for more information about UnionDocs and UDR and fill out an application if you are interested:

Hello,

I'm getting the word out that Albertus Magnus College is hosting a film series
in the fall. The theme is "WE THE PEOPLE." There is an open call for
submissions. It could be anything that has a tie to the Bill of Rights or US
Constitution. I'm not talking about super-obvious apple pie and fireworks
either. The entries can be balanced or biased. Documentary or satirical… They
can be provocative or healing... they just need to offer some perspective on
the aforementioned American ideals as they pertain or contrast to present
American life. As examples, films can engage topics such as: freedom of speech
freedom of religion separation of church and state the right to bear arms…

There’s more information online along with a downloadable application.

We The People Film Contest

Best regards

DocuClub in July: Wednesday, July 9, 2008, 7 p.m.

About DocuClub
DocuClub is Arts Engine’s monthly film screening series of works-in-progress documentaries.

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday, July 9, at 7 p.m., at Goldcrest Post (799 Washington Street, between Horatio and Gansevoort), in New York City’s West Village. Our moderator will be Milton Tabbot, Senior Director of Programming at IFP.

Join us as we watch Danae Elon’s "Partly Private." The film is an intensely personal and witty look at the ritual of male circumcision. Using first-person narration, Elon documents her own pregnancy and the unexpected dilemmas she encounters with her partner and father of her unborn child. What should they do to their newborn’s penis? Determined and obsessed, Elon sets out on a worldly quest to find out all she can about what “other people do.” The exploration exposes in an amusing way the flaws of being human. The film will be shown on Arte France, TV Ontario, TV2 Denmark, and Israel’s Channel 8.

Danae Elon is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, producer and cinematographer. Her last film, "Another Road Home," was a nuanced look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Theatrically released in 2005, it showed in over twenty US cities, and broadcast on the Sundance channel, BBC, Al Jazeera and Israeli television.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to: docuclub@artsengine.net.

Admission is free to current DocuClub members and $5 for non-members.

Membership is an annual $40, which includes free admission to all DocuClub events. To join or renew, please go to:

INTERN NEEDED IMMEDIATELY!

Hi everyone,

I have yet to update my profile here on D-Word ... but I'm Beth Levison, an independent in NYC ....

We are producing an independent documentary film about an ex-con turned spoken word artist who is writing, developing, and rehearsing his one-man show for the New York stage. We're looking for a smart, ready-to-roll-up-his/her-sleeves, and hard working intern who can provide both production and post-production support during the early stages of our process (we're producing our fundraising reel) and starting immediately.

We're a small team (2 of us), so it's definitely a terrific experience for someone wanting to dive right in. Ideally, this person could devote him/herself to the project for the next two weeks and then possibly work part time from there. We need basic organizational support and help with production coordination (person may come on location), archival research, and post prep.

Candidates should send their resumes/letters of interest to bethlevison@yahoo.com.

Thank you!

Shri, we focus on documentaries here, but the upcoming festivals that come to mind are Toronto, Sundance and Berlin. The advice we usually give is to go after the biggest and best first, especially for your world premiere. Lots of luck.

Hello Everyone,

I am a programmer for the 2nd Annual Cinema Verite – Iran International Documentary Film Festival – which takes place in Tehran October 15th-19th, 2008. We're still looking for films to feature in the following categories (see hidden section). Let me know if you or someone you know has a film that fits into any of these categories. We will fly out a number of the filmmakers to Tehran with four nights stay (and we'll take care of visas for you as well). Looking forward to hearing from you.

America, Post America

America is no longer the strongest, the best, biggest and most powerful country in the world. The American Dream is fading away as the American way of life is slowly forgotten. What will become yesteryear's utopia in the post-American era?

Our Era

Our era is a strange era. Our era, is the era of science, end of darkness and the reigning of machines. Our era, is one of fragmented identities, lost pasts and virtual imagery. But our era, is still an era of fanaticism and oppression, blind politics, dictatorships, injustice and hunger. The documentary film is committed to reflecting our times, our era.

Our Universe

Once upon a time, the nature served as a source of inspiration for artists, philosophers and poets alike. Today, nature is witnessing its own destruction in the hands of an ignorant self-serving mankind with suppressed anger. Are we going to return to nature? Or are we going to destroy it oblivious to our own demise?

Doxperiment

Somewhere between dreams and reality, storytelling, direct observation and experimentation, the documentary film greets experimental cinema with open arms. New experiences are born from this union.

Special Screenings

Watching the documentaries in this section is an experience beyond a personal journey of exploration. These screenings take us to the far corners of the world through the eyes of some of the world's most adventurous and worldly documentary filmmakers.
