Hi, the Full Sail Real World Education Documentary Film Society is
looking for documentary filmmakers in the Orlando area who would like
to speak at a Q&A event for aspiring documentarian film students. We
are willing to fundraise to pay for gas or a night's stay if necessary.
There are many film students just itching to get out there and be
documentarians. Imagine how invaluable it will be to talk to someone
already where they want to be.
Any willing documentarians please contact Larissa Distler at

LA Film Screening of "Polka Time" at Broad Humor Film Festival

My zippy little documentary "Polka Time" is going to be at the Broad
Humor Film Festival next Saturday the 25th at 6:30p in rockin Venice,
CA.

http://www.channelsusan.com/broadhumor/fest.htm

It's in the Shorts program before the "Laughing Matters...More" docu-
comedy. Should be a good night for fun documentaries!

Here's a brief description of "Polka Time":

Five Days. Three Ballrooms.
Thousands of polka-loving partiers.

For 30-plus years people from all over the country have
RVed to a tiny town in Minnesota for an epic event.

The Gibbon Polka Fest.

Join the throngs in this zippy cultural documentary.
Festivalgoers tell their own stories. And along the way
we’re treated to some mighty fine dancing,
a romance or two, and, perhaps, the hottest
new polka band around--
Jon Dietz and the Twin Lakes Trio.

Come out and get your boogie on!

Hey all, check it out. It'd be great to see you.
T/F presents SUPER AMIGOS and NIGHT MAIL
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 18 AT 7pm
IFC Center, New York

  • SUPER AMIGOS (2007, Arturo Perez Torres) Filmmaker in person

  • NIGHT MAIL (1936, Harry Watt and Basil Wright) New score performed live

One film is an eye-popping look at masked superheroes who fight to free an overcrowded Mexico City from tenant evictions, animal cruelty, gay bashing and other social ills. The other is a documentary classic, stripped down and retrofitted with a new soundtrack by Ken Thomson, performed by New York avant-jazz vikings Gutbucket. Both come courtesy of the True/False Film Fest, a group of upstart Midwesterners hellbent on showcasing all that is new,nontraditional and genre-defying in nonfiction filmmaking.

Check out www.truefalse.org for more details

And for IFP participants and D-Worders and T/F alums, we'll be throwing a party afterwards. Hope to see you there.

True/False is great, Paul, and look forward to seeing you again at the event. But we don't double post here at The D-Word, old or new. We'll let you get away with it this one time because we like you but never again.

Thanks Doug for the gentle slap on this newbie's wrist-- I guess I got a little too excited about getting in on the launch of the new-and-improved D-Word. This led to me wanting to repackage the True/False announcement in sonnet form, Haiku, free verse, and algebraic formulas, scattered all through the site. But I will now keep those to myself, now that I know this rule. See you next week.

Moved from Introduce Yourself :

The Times BFI 51st London Film Festival Education Program

17 October – 1 November

The Education Program includes feature and short films from around the world at FREE screenings in cinemas across London.

You and your students are invited to a series of FREE screenings and events taking place during the Times BFI 51st London Film Festival Education Programme.

With a special focus on Documentary, there are several films for audiences interested in exploring non-fiction film.

HOLD ME TIGHT, LET ME GO, is a must see for anybody who works or is looking to work with children with behaviour problems or film students interested in Documentary making. This observational documentary by famed director Kim Longoniotto looks at a boarding school in Oxford for excluded children who suffer severe emotional trauma.

RETURN TO GOREE is a lively documentary following the journey of Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour as he traces the history of music from West Africa to countries of the African Diaspora. The film interweaves history, music and investigative documentary styles in an accessible and fascinating portrait.

Director Nick Broomfield again crosses the line between fiction and documentary with his film BATTLE FOR HADITHA, which re-creates the events of a battle between US-Marines and Iraqi civilians in 2005. Renowned for his maverick documentary-practices, Broomfield here uses the fiction genre but his employ of non-professional actors and real situations make for an interesting discussion of blurring fiction/non-fiction boundaries.

All films are facilitated by an education professional and will include Q & A with the director or specialist speaker.

For information on this and other films showing for FREE to education audiences as part of the Education Program of the Times BFI London Film Festival, please visit:

Posting this for a friend - he can be reached at: kevindowns1@gmail.com

I'm headed to NY next week to shoot my close friend
(and great artist) Lucinda Williams in concert. It's a no budget
shoot - a labor of love. But she's one of the best in the country at
what she does. And she rarely lets anyone videotape her, so this is
an extremely rare event.

I'm looking for camera operators willing to work for little to no pay
- basically for the love of the music. In return they get to witness
one of the best live acts in the country today. These shows also
promise a series of special guests. (I just finished shooting 5
nights in LA - guests included Emmy Lou Harris, Robbie Krieger ((the
Doors)), Mike Campbell ((Tom Petty's band)), Steve Earl and more.)

It's a perfect opportunity for an AC or operator who wants to add
some celebrity footage to their reel. And it's an even better opportunity for
anyone who loves shooting good music. She's playing 5 nights in NY. 2 at Irving
Plaza Sept 29 and 30. 3 @ Town Hall Oct 2-4.

One last thing - we're shooting mini DV. 24p. 16:9 aspect ration.

Do you or someone you know want to get paid to write about your
experience at the Hamptons Film Festival, London Film Festival or the Hollywood Film Festival? We're looking for someone to be our "Festival Tour Roadie" who can submit some blog entries for
our website.

For example we had Robert Ell, the talent booker for Dailies, do the one
from Toronto.

http://www.reelzchannel.com/showdetail.aspx?showid=37

It's just a way to get a little local color on the site.

Have a great weekend!
