Jason Perdue

The Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival is now accepting entries for the 2009 festival. More than a few D-word members have sent their films for consideration in our great festival. Sebastopol is a small town one hour north of San Francisco in Sonoma County. It's a small town that loves documentaries as evidenced by the selling out of three screens over four days last year.

Our Early Deadline is closing soon, July 31, so don't delay. You can submit through Without a Box or through our website

There are later submission dates if you can't make it by that date.

Email me, Jason Perdue, Programming Director, at with any questions.

Dempsey Rice

I am looking for someone to record some audio for me in Fort Collins, CO. I hope this will happen next week – it would mean meeting up with an author and recording her reading a few lines from her upcoming book. This can be a sound person, producer/filmmaker or a camera person with access to audio equpment. Can be recorded to mini-disk or to DV CAM (or mini DV) tape. Please no recording to DAT as I do not have a DAT machine.... Bad News: there isn't a very big budget for this job. Good news: this should take about an hour of your time. You might not make your day rate, but if you've got time available it's a bit of money for a small amount of work!

If you know someone in the Fort Collins/Denver area please have them email me or please email me directly if you are in that area and intersted:

Thanks, Dempsey

DocuClub in August: Wednesday, August 20, 2008, 7 p.m.

About DocuClub
DocuClub is Arts Engine’s monthly film screening series of works-in-progress documentaries. For more info, please go to:

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday, August 20, 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 Melissa Fowler, Founder and Director of the Reel Venus Film Festival.

Please join us as we screen "Good Fortune" by Landon Van Soest. The documentary explores how massive, international efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa may be undermining the very communities they are aimed at benefiting. The film presents portraits of three individuals targeted by multi-million dollar aid projects, who say the projects are threatening to destroy their homes and livelihoods. Contrasted with well-intentioned humanitarians working against the odds to stimulate positive change, "Good Fortune" presents a unique perspective on the struggle to overcome world poverty.

Landon Van Soest is director/producer of "Good Fortune." His previous film, "Walking the Line," is an award-winning feature documentary about “vigilantes on the U.S.-Mexico border” that has been lauded for advocating human rights. In 2005, he founded Transient Pictures with partner Jeremy Levine. He is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship and received the award for Socially Conscious Documentary at the 2007 IFP Market.

Producer/editor Jeremy Levine co-directed and produced "Walking The Line" with Van Soest, and recently worked as an editor on "Everything’s Cool" by Judith Helfand and Daniel B. Gold. His work has screened in dozens of film festivals around the world and broadcast nationally in six countries. Levine is currently developing the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective, a non-profit organization that provides support to independent filmmakers in New York City.

Van Soest and Levine recently returned from work-shopping "Good Fortune" at the Sundance Institute’s Documentary Composing and Story Labs. In addition, "Good Fortune" is a fiscally-sponsored project of Arts Engine.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to:

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:
