DocuClub in May: Wednesday, May 27, 7 p.m.

DocuClub is holding its May screening on Wednesday, May 27, at the beautiful new theater facilities of the 92YTribeca, located at 200 Hudson Street (at Canal). You can take the E, 1, or 6 trains to Canal.

Our moderator will be Yance Ford. Ford is Series Producer of P.O.V. and has been instrumental in curating the acclaimed documentary film series on PBS for seven years. Ford works closely with P.O.V.’s executive director to evaluate films submitted to P.O.V., oversees P.O.V.’s annual call for entries, and coordinates P.O.V.’s annual programming advisory board. Privately, Ford is a Programming Associate, Documentary Features for the Sundance Film Festival and serves on the IFW Advisory Committee. She is also a consultant and pre screener for Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, True/False, and Newport International Film Festival among others. She has served on juries at Full Frame, Silverdocs, and ITVS, appeared on panels at True/False, Sunny Side of the Doc and mentored emerging filmmakers at the NALIP Producer’s Academy. A graduate of Hamilton College and the production workshop at Third World Newsreel, Ford is currently in development on her first film, a documentary film about race and murder in the suburbs of New York City.

We are excited to be screening PARTING THE WATERS Co-directed and co-produced by Josh Waletzky and longtime DocuClub member Jenny Levison. Despite the fact that swimming pools have been racially integrated for over fifty years, two thirds of black and Latino children still can’t swim. PARTING THE WATERS follows African-American Olympic swimmers Maritza Correia and Cullen Jones, and three talented young black and Latino swimmers coming up behind them, in a fish-out-of water story that takes place in the water. You can see a trailer of the film at: dotellproductions.com/site/partingthewaters.

Josh Waletzky, Director, Editor and Co-Producer, is a highly acclaimed documentary filmmaker who has made dozens of films that probe deep into the lives of people caught in social and cultural crossroads. His extensive body of documentary work includes Academy Award-nominated Music For The Movies: Bernard Herrmann, Image Before My Eyes, Partisans Of Vilna, Sacred Stage: The Marinsky Theater, and Shaker Heights: Struggle For Integration.

Producer, Co-Director and Writer Jenny Levison is a screenwriter, playwright, and filmmaker who specializes in the use of arts media in social justice organizing. Her writing and production credits include the CD of Mexican and Mexican American labor music, Nuestras Voces Se Levantan Para la Justicia; the musical theater work Shtil, Mayn Corazon- A Yiddish Tango Cabaret; the documentary films Niel and Phil and Live Free or Dye; and the satiric media campaign Billionaires for Bush (or Gore).

Job title: Documentary Filmmaker
Organization name: Imagine Project, Inc. http://imagineproject.org
Location of job: New York City
Last date of receiving volunteer applications: Open
Contact details for receiving applications: cdavidson@imagineproject.org

About Imagine Project
THE IMAGINE PROJECT Inc., is a not for profit 501(c) 3 corporation founded in 1992, dedicated to nurturing a child’s creativity through the arts. Through the design and delivery of creative and performing arts programs to inner city children in homeless shelters, community centers and NYC public schools, we create and facilitate a safe environment for children to explore and engage their creative energy.

The Opportunity
This past winter, the Imagine Project submitted a children’s musical to the 2009 New York International Fringe Festival, the largest multi-arts festival in North America, and last week, we were notified that our submission won one of three spots in the FringeJR program. The show will be cast with at least 50% homeless shelter kids. This as an outstanding opportunity for a talented filmmaker to capture a unique, exciting narrative chronicling the experience of talented children living under daunting circumstances as they endeavor to pull off a professional musical at the New York International Fringe Festival.

This is an unpaid opportunity, as the Imagine Project is a low budget organization with the bulk of our funding going toward our youth programs. However, we would be willing to discuss covering some small portion of the costs. The filmmaker should be available to start as soon as possible and will work approximately 3-4 hours per week through the week of 8/14/09.

Requirements
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in documentary filmmaking, preferably with directly related subject matter. Timeliness and attention to detail required. Access to up to date equipment and financiers is preferable.

Apply
Qualified applicants send a cover letter and resume to cdavidson@imagineproject.org with links to samples of your work available online.

ALSO: We're still in urgent need of virtual volunteers, advisors, and financial & in-kind support. We've been able to make up the difference in the past through external revenue and teaching gigs, but the global meltdown has hit us hard, and there are far fewer support gigs out here than there are in the developed world.

Hi Folks,
Any doc other filmmakers out there living and working in Mumbai....? India?

Jonathan, the best thing to do is to do a search of D-Word members by country – to get there just click on the "People" link at the top left of this page and then select "Advanced Search"

You'll see that we have quite a few members in Mumbai, although not many regulars.

And no need to double post, Jonathan. People will find your post in the appropriate topic, to be sure.
