Anyone filmed or done any work in Sudan, specifically Juba? I'm trying to budget for a fixer, driver and not too sure what the rate would be.
Also, any suggestions to Juba accomodations would be great!

A word of warning if you are thinking of submitting your film to, or attending the Swansea International Film Festival (via Shooting People)

Wow! I think I could hold a better film festival in my home theater. At least I like filmmakers...

In reply to John Burgan's post on Mon 14 Feb 2011 :

What a parasite! He also does other festivals via Amritsa (classy website). You're probably best off steering clear of these ones too:

Swansea Bay Film Festival
Heart of England International Film Festival
International Youth Film Festival
International Film Festival of Mind, Body, Spirit & Ecology
International Film Festival of South Africa
International Film Festival Ireland
International Gay Film Festival UK
International Film Festival of Australia – Barossa Valley
International Film Festival Thailand
International Film Festival of West Wales

Can anyone recommend a good professional accountant in the New York City area with experience working with small film production companies? I'd be grateful for any referrals.
