Call-for-Entries for DocuClub in March!
Our next DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, March 9, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker), New York City.
In March, we are thrilled to try something new, and will screen trailers for documentaries in the early stages of production. This way, we hope to reach out to filmmakers all different stages of production, and not just at rough-cut.
To be considered, please heed the following requirements:
- Project must be in early-to-late stages of production
- Trailer must be 3-8 minutes in length
- Screening format is DVD
- You must be a current DocuClub member. If you are not sure about your membership status, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership is an annual $50 and it includes free admission to all DocuClub events. It takes five minutes to join online:
Deadline: February 18, 2011
We will pre-select four projects. The night of the event, we will chose at random a fifth project to be workshopped, so if your project was not pre-selected, do bring your trailer on DVD. You might just get lucky! (Rules above still apply, however.)
Our moderator will be Fernanda Rossi. Internationally-renowned speaker and story consultant Fernanda Rossi doctored over 300 films, including Academy Award nominees® The Garden, by Scott Hamilton Kennedy, and Recycled Life by Leslie Iwerks. She has also consulted on hundreds of trailers, many of which received funding from ITVS, NYSCA and NFB. She is the author of Trailer Mechanics: A Guide to Making your Documentary Fundraising Demo.
