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.

Africa Volunteer Corps is searching for short films to participate in our Visualize Change Film Forum, a the inaugural event of our annual fundraising series. AVC is an organization dedicated to harnessing the potential of Africans, strengthening grassroots social change in Africa, and putting the development process in the hands of locals. We ask for films that portray empowerment, positive images of Africa, or the importance of local initiatives to the development process. We seek especially to showcase African filmmakers, but we welcome filmmakers of all nationalities.

On March 3rd, 2011, the selected films will be shown in Chicago to an audience of 100+ philanthropists. The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with AVC founder Caitlin Kelley. A biography of each filmmaker (as well as contact information) will be included in our event program. The selected films may also be included in a sister event to be held in New York City in April.

Films must be 10-60 minutes in length. DVDs can be sent to Africa Volunteer Corps c/o Caitlin Kelley, 963 Kent Ave, #3, Brooklyn, NY 11205. If available, digital files can be submitted via Dropbox to caitlin.kelley@africavolunteercorps.org. Films must be received by February 18th to be considered for inclusion in our 2011 forum. Those sent after this deadline will be kept for consideration in future events.

I've been happy with Arnold Civins over at Citrin Cooperman & Co, LLP 212.697.1000 x313. They're not the cheapest firm, but they have solid experience in the industry and are very professional. If you meet with Arnie, tell him I sent you. He's a nice guy. Good luck! :)

For New York Folks:

FEATURE DOCUMENTARY SEEKS EDITOR

PROJECT: The Kivalina Project: The Story of America's Climate Change Refugees

ABOUT: Set in the modern Arctic, "The Kivalina Project" tells the story of a slow and insidious disappearance of an entire American town and the sea wall that is meant to save it.

EDITOR POSITION: "The Kivalina Project" is looking to hire a passionate and eloquent storyteller. An editor with experience in verite or character driven narratives, along with a feature documentary credit is a plus, but not a requirement. This is a good project for those who are interested in climate change and exploring it beyond a traditional journalistic narrative.

Looking to hire an editor for 8 weeks to begin cutting the backbone of the feature in preparation for final shoots in summer and fall 2011. Salary is a flat rate/lowbudget. ("The Kivalina Project" has been supported by Tribeca All Access, IFP's Spotlight on Documentary, Vague/Columbus Film Award, Berlinale's Berlin Today Award, and IDFA.)
