Nice to have you here on The D-Word, Tchavdar, and much congrats. In the future, though, posts like this belong in the Shameless Self-Promotion topic.
Sorry about that Doug. I am still learning my way around here but LOVE the web portal you have created. :)

Wanted to let people know about an interesting lecture series happening in Brooklyn:
What: The Holocaust in Film with A. O. Scott
When: Sundays March 20, 27, April 3, 10 @ 7 PM
Where: Park Slope Jewish Center, 1420 8th Avenue (@ 14th St) Brooklyn 11215 718-768-1453 /www.psjc.org / F to 7th Avenue or 15th St. / Prospect Park
Tickets: $20/session & $60/series (members: $15/session & $40/series). Contact the PSJC office to register: 718 768-1453 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Park Slope Jewish Center is proud to present The Holocaust in Film, a four-session lecture series taught by A. O. Scott, New York Times film critic, with illustrative clips.
More than a quarter-century after Claude Lanzmann's landmark documentary "Shoah" and nearly twenty years after Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List," the Holocaust remains a perennially popular subject in American and European cinema. This course will explore some of the ways that a uniquely horrific and painful historical experience has been commemorated, reconstructed and even turned into entertainment. We will survey the various genres of the Holocaust film--from documentaries and non-fiction-based dramas to fantasies and action-adventure stories--and address some of the ethical challenges they raise. Each of the four sessions will be organized around a particular theme, with clips from relevant films. These will include well-known recent Hollywood productions (like "Inglourious Basterds," "Defiance," and "The Reader") as well as European films ("Voyages," "Fateless," "A Secret") that may be less familiar to American audiences.
- March 20: Introduction and overview: History of the Holocaust on film.
- March 27: Reconstructing and remembering: Documentaries, eyewitness accounts and survivors' stories.
- April 3: Reckoning: Movies about the psychology of the perpetrators and the moral dilemmas of the victims.
- April 10: Revisionism, Resistance and Revenge: Movies as alternative history.
A rare opportunity to hear insights from one of the nation's leading film critics on this important topic.
Sundays at 7:00 p.m.
Cost is $15 a session for members or $40 for the whole series; $20/$60 for non-members.
Call the PSJC office to register: 718 768-1453.

What international documentary festivals will you be applying to with this film? In Europe?
Hi everyone. I have a question. In terms of copyright and legal issues, is it okay for me to publicly screen trailers of documentaries without asking for permission from the relevant persons?
In reply to Mildred Achoch's post on Sun 13 Mar 2011 :
Mildred, are you talking about permission from the relevant directors/producers, or is this a trailer of a film you are making and you're talking about the characters?
Trailers are confined to the same copyright rules as any other audiovisual work. This generally means that you require people's permission to reproduce their work (in case of the author) or voice and likeness (in case of characters in a film you're making). There are exceptions though, like when your film is about a public figure, say a politician.
If you're talking about other people's work: many times filmmakers will fully copyright their documentary but assign a Creative Commons license (creativecommons.org) to the trailer, so it can be freely shared without permission (although often not altered). So this would differ from trailer to trailer.
Hi Koen. Thank you for your detailed reply :-)
I would like to screen a collection of rock documentary trailers since getting permission and/or the money to pay the producers so that I can screen their full documentaries is rather hectic (I'm speaking from experience). I was thinking that screening the trailers would be a kind of shortcut in that I would showcase the various documentaries without the related expenses.
Thanks for the info about the Creative Commons license. I will explore this.
