DocuClub in April!

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday, April 29, 6 p.m., at The Tank, located at 354 West 45th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues, near Times Square).

Our moderator will be A.M. Peters. Peters' independent film banner, Dinomonster Films, develops and produces documentaries and feature films, as well as music and corporate videos offering a fresh style and perspective on characters and culture. Her produced scripts include such animated shorts "Jack Quack (The Path)" and "Corporate Whore," and the comedy Electronic Devices. Peters worked as the Assistant to Academy-Award nominated director Nanette Burstein on the documentary "American Teen." She has also worked with other clients such as Smith Barney and Merrill Lynch. Peters’ most recent film, "No Cross, No Crown," will screen at Patois: The 6th Annual New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival.

We will screen "Lil Poison" by Beth Earl. At five years old, Victor De Leon III is the youngest professional video game player in the world. "Lil Poison" follows Victor and his father/manager, SicVic, as they travel to video game tournaments across the country hoping to win prize money, score sponsorship deals and place in the top sixteen of the Major League Gaming circuit. Gaming gives them the opportunity to travel, earn money and recognition, and escape their financial woes and family predicament. The documentary offers insight into this gaming world and shows us the life of a kid who could become the poster child for his generation.

Director and producer Beth Earl is the founder of Massive Productions. She graduated with a degree in International Relations from Brown University, and went on to get a certificate in digital filmmaking from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Beth worked with Albert Maysles on his upcoming project, "In Transit." "Lil Poison" is her first documentary.

I'm involved in a yearly festival of Arts in Fall River, Massachusetts called "Arts Around the Block." Last year we showed my film "Pawtucket Rising"

This year, I am looking for documentary shorts to show to the public during this festival.

I am looking specifically for documentary shorts (under 20 minutes) that have to do with Arts, Economic Development, Architectural History, Revivals of cities.

Because our festival is free, and runs with absolutely no budget, we cannot compensate for playing the films. I will however return the films to you at my cost after showing. I could also make a copy or receive these digitally if possible.

Please contact me at
