Fulbright Scholar Program for US Faculty and Professionals
The Fulbright Scholar Program is offering 12 lecturing, research or
combined lecturing/research awards in film studies during the 2008-
2009 academic year. U.S. Fulbright Scholars in 150 countries and all
regions of the world enjoy an experience of a lifetime, one that
provides a broad cultural perspective on their academic disciplines
and connects them with colleagues at institutions around the globe.

Awards range from two months to an academic year. Faculty and
professionals in film studies may apply not only for awards
specifically in their field, but also for one of the many “All
Discipline” awards open to any field. Grants are awarded to faculty
of all academic ranks, including adjunct and emeritus. In most
countries lecturing is in English, though awards in Latin America,
Francophone Africa, and the Middle East may require proficiency in
another language.

The application deadline for Fulbright traditional lecturing and
research grants worldwide is August 1, 2007. U.S. citizenship is
required. For other eligibility requirements, detailed award
descriptions, and an application, visit <http://www.cies.org>, or
send a request for materials to apprequest@cies.iie.org.

D-Worders in Dublin Ireland
My doc, "Home" will screen on
SATURDAY, MARCH 24 2007 11:30 am
The Irish Film Institute
6 Eustace Street
Temple Bar
Dublin 2
This is a distributor screening for Irish and UK distribs. All U.S.
distribs have passed and I am assuming all the rest will too....
This is our final effort to find a distributor. I am now focusing on
self-distributing the dvd. We are in need of funding for it. "Home"
was completely self financed and I'm unable to continue financing
it. So if anyone is interested in seeing the film, or has any ideas
on who in Ireland we can approach for funding or invite to this
screening, please let us know. I don't have the funds to make it to
the screening, so I won't be there, but you can reserve a seat with
the co-producer, writer and narrator of "Home", Alan Cooke
call 086 179 1410 or email alanmcooke@gmail.com

Many Thanks to all.

Hopefully I post this under the right topic... However, I thought this
might be interesting to you all, since we have a new competition in
our programme:

MUSIXINE INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FILM CONTEST IN FINLAND SEP 5-9, 2007

Oulu Music Video Festival introduces MusiXine International Music Film
Contest into its film programme, making MusiXine the burning point of
the upcoming festival. MusiXine adds a new dimension to the OMVF scene
that already includes music videos, special screenings and air guitar
battling. The contest will be arranged during the 14th edition of the
festival on 5-9 September, 2007.

MusiXine is a contest for films on music, music making and related
phenomena, and the MusiXine Main Award for the best film in tune
totals *10,000.

As an annual part of the Oulu Music Video Festival from now on,
MusiXine will showcase the latest trends in music film. The contest
will aim to encourage new film artists, their work and ideas, bring
out the music film as an art form and serve as a forum for screening
films on various music phenomena. In MusiXine, films will be evaluated
for their cinematic merit in the context of music film, and the most
important evaluation criteria for a successful work are the film's
insightful treatment of its topic and its artistic achievements.

More information on how to submit your film at www.musixine.com. Pump
up the beat and participate! You have time 'til 8 June, 2007.
