Hartmut Bitomsky's new film, DUST opening tomorrow at Film Forum!

IT DOESN’T GET MORE BASIC THAN DUST. And it is only a filmmaker of Harmut Bitomsky’s stature who could successfully tackle a subject so seemingly uncinematic — by bringing to it a rigorous intelligence and a masterful visual imagination. DUST scours industrial sites and office building interiors, paint factories, and demolition sites. It deals with dust-repellent products, the medicinal cost of dust, the history of the Dust Bowl and the aftereffects of the dust created on 9/11. The definitive film on an elusive phenomenon that is both everywhere and nowhere.

Wednesday, December 3 – Tuesday, December 9 • One Week
Showtimes: 1:15, 3:30, 6:00, 8:00, 10:00

For tickets: http://www.filmforum.org/films/dust.html

Hello everyone,

I wanted to put in a good word for a grant writer I've had the pleasure of working with over the past 2 years, Joanna Rabiger. I actually found her from a posting here on d-word.

She's incredibly talented, experienced, great with deadlines, and most importantly – this year her writing helped us get funding from the Jerome Foundation, Sundance Institute, Gucci/Tribeca, BBC Storyville, and most recently – ITVS.

I know we wouldn't have gotten this far without her so I wanted to spread the word. Oh, and her rate is very affordable.

Joanna's email is jorabiger@fastmail.fm

Hello everyone,

I'm working on a feature length doc that has recently been recommended for funding by ITVS. We just finished shooting and are gearing up for post. One huge task we have right now is to prepare our budget for ITVS (past and future). It clearly takes a whole lot of time and skills that we don't currently have. So right now I'm looking for an Associate Producer/Production Manager to join our team for the duration of the project to help us manage and deal with our budget. And because ITVS has such specific requirements, I'm hoping to find someone in NYC who has experience specifically with ITVS.

I'm also looking for a lawyer to help us with the contract negotiation. Again, I'd like someone with ITVS experience.

This is our first feature and much of this is new us, so if anyone has any advice as we move into this next phase of production its always much appreciated.

Thanks! – Michael

Hi All,
I wanted to second Michael's post from a couple of days ago about Joanna Rabiger, grantwriter. Joanna is truly a pleasure to work with! She is incredibly talented and dedicated, with a gift for words and film structure and is able to brilliantly and succinctly articulate a project (without run-on sentences like this one). Her work has certainly opened some funder's doors for my current film. And yes, she is fast and affordable.

I'm seeking an assistant editor in the D.C. area to help translate footage for my film DELTA BOYS

The material is in Okrika an Ijaw dialect of the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. The footage is very interesting, filmed in a Niger Delta militant camp.

I haven't been able to find Okrika translators in New York, but it looks like there are some in the D.C. area. The work would involve sitting with the translator, going through the footage in Final Cut, and typing in the translation.

You don't need to be a master editor, but must be Final Cut savvy and quick and have access to a system.

This a paid gig depending on your experience.

DocuClub in January: Wednesday, January 28, 7 p.m.

Our DocuClub for January screening will take place on Wednesday, January 28, 7 p.m., at The Tank, located at 354 West 45th Street (between 8th and 9th Avenues, near Times Square).

Our moderator will be independent producer, writer, and non-fiction filmmaker Pamela Cohn. She is currently researching and writing a book on international female non-fiction filmmakers, and covers nonfiction film festivals and blogs on non-fiction filmmaking at Still in Motion and other arts, media and film sites.

We will screen "The Hand of Fatima" by Augusta Palmer. A family road trip through rock history to the square root of the blues, this poetic documentary follows filmmaker and new mother Palmer from Mississippi to Morocco on a search for her rock critic father's ideal mystical family, the Master Musicians of Jajouka. Animated sequences based on the late Robert Palmer's writing for Rolling Stone lead his estranged daughter to the people William Burroughs called "the world's only 4000 year-old rock band." Encounters with Yoko Ono, Donovan, Anthony DeCurtis, and the elder Palmer's four wives pepper a journey that ends with The Master Musicians' indelible performances in their own village. These performances enable the filmmaker to read the truth between the lines of her father's mystical journey and to make peace with his all-consuming need for musical transcendence.

Augusta Palmer (Director, Writer) holds a Ph.D. in Cinema Studies from N.Y.U. She is the co-director of "If You Succeed" (2007), a verité documentary about a young entrepreneurial couple's struggle to create a business and save their failing marriage. The film screened at the Little Rock Film Festival and San Francisco DocFest in 2007. Palmer has written about film for indieWIRE and Filmmaker and has taught film studies at N.Y.U., Brooklyn College, and Sarah Lawrence College. The Hand of Fatima is her first feature as a solo director.

Chris Arnold (Producer, Editor) worked for 8 years at New York City's Downtown Community Television Center (DCTV) as an editor, producer, filmmaking instructor and program director. While at DCTV, he created and led ConnecTV, the first 3-year intensive television production and training program for people with disabilities in the U.S. In 2003, he co-founded Cultural Animal, LLC, an independent media production company, whose projects include the award winning verite documentary "If You Succeed," which Chris edited, co-directed, and co-produced.

"The Hand of Fatima" has received support from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Swing Space program. It was also featured at the 2008 IFP Documentary Rough Cut Lab.

Admission is free for current DocuClub members and $5 for non-members.

ELSEWHERE ARTIST COLLABORATIVE
2009 residencies for artists, filmmakers, writers, curators and cultural producers

Elsewhere, an arts production site and experimental museum in downtown Greensboro, NC, is seeking artists, curators, writers, musicians, and cultural producers for residencies during the Spring, Summer, and Fall 2009 seasons. Set within a former thrift store housing a 58-year collection of American surplus, thrift, and antiques, Elsewhere invites experimental creators to utilize the immense collection of objects to pursue site-specific material, conceptual, and/or technologically-based projects. Elsewhere’s building—two storefronts on the ground floor, a 14-room boarding house on the second, and warehouse on the third—provides dynamic architectures for the creation and installation of works. Artists live and work within transforming installations; these interactive environments become platforms for re-conceptualizing the theory and practice of art-making as an ongoing process of exchange in community. Within a store where nothing is for sale, Elsewhere offers an unparalleled framework for creative practices, processes and productions outside the traditional gallery, museum, and residency systems. The complete call for artists and application deadlines are available at http://www.elsewhereelsewhere.org/residencies.html. Creators of all kinds and collaborative groups should email residencies@elsewhereelsewhere.org for an application and brochure. We review applications at the end of each month.
