Independent Documentary Filmmaker Seeks Outreach and Marketing Intern

I am an award winning documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn, New York who is just finishing a new experimental short documentary about remembering called FORGET ME NOTS.
I am seeking an intern who can help me research the markets I have targeted for the distribution of this film and to help me focus my audience outreach strategy. This person must be able to employ critical thinking skills, work independently and be familiar with Mac computers. Knowledge of Excel and/or FileMaker are a plus.
This is an opportunity to get hands on experience for a very small company (rather than answering phones at a big firm) and would be ideal for someone studying marketing/outreach and/or a documentary film student who wants to learn what grass roots distribution is all about.
To learn more about the film and my work please visit www.dempseyrice.com
To ask questions or to apply for the position please email a resume and cover letter stating your experience (as a student or professional), why you are interested in working for a small production company and what you bring to the table.
dempsey@dempseyrice.com

Thank you!

REBEL DOCS
Rebel against the entrenched establishment. Reject authority, fight the power. Re-new your right for freedom and individuality. Docs can help us do that....right? Redford has said many times that docs are our last bastion of reliable truth since the traditional media... “has gone the way of the dodo.” And the docs this year at Sundance cover everything from Iraq to a female comedian's struggle to keep going despite the impenetrable boy's club. But do these films do anything to actually change the way Coke, Chevron and Citibank run the world?.... READ THE REST OF HANK'S BLOG

Just a little snark, Tailinh, and it's good for body and soul. Actually, Brooklyn's getting more and more like Santa Fe every day.

DOC ALLIANCE FILMS
The New Deal for Feature Documentaries

Doc Alliance Films – www.docalliancefilms.com – the new online documentary portal for Video on Demand. Doc Alliance is a partnership between five key European documentary film festivals: CPH:DOX Copenhagen, DOK Leipzig, IDFF Jihlava, Planete Doc Review Warsaw and VISIONS DU REEL Nyon.

www.docalliancefilms.com offers permanent access to over 250 outstanding documentaries selected by the five partner festivals. New films are added monthly and each one can be acquired through streaming or download.

The aim of the Doc Alliance initiative is to support the diversity of feature documentaries and to convince audiences of the fascinating, moving and instructive aspects of the cinéma du reel where reality surpasses fiction and becomes spectacular.

Doc Alliance was born with the awareness that new initiatives are needed to promote remarkable films to a general market that is less permeable to their circulation and commercialisation and to approach various audiences in every conceivable manner, ranging from cinema, television, DVD to VOD, and other networks.

Its objective is to create an inventive and dynamic distribution platform for filmmakers and producers by offering attractive alternatives, debates, choices and perspectives.

Doc Alliance Films is proud to announce that it can now be found on YouTube and other social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Please keep checking the www.docalliancefilms.com for promotions and opportunities for viewers and filmmakers, as well as updates on new directions and initiatives of Doc Alliance, website upgrades and where you can find us next, from online publications to blogs and social networks.
