CALL FOR ENTRIES
Scottish Documentary Institute is pleased to announce that Bridging the Gap 8 is now open for applications!
We are looking for Scottish-based filmmakers to make 10 minute documentaries on the theme of SHIFT. We want films to be told in the first person – either by the filmmaker or the main character.
12 ideas will be short-listed on the basis of the proposal and supporting materials. In the following weeks they will be developed through weekend workshops so that they can be pitched to a panel of experts who will commission the final 5 projects in December 2010. The films, to be delivered by April 2011, are intended for distribution in cinemas and festivals.
Who can apply?
This scheme is open to all filmmakers based in Scotland, and particularly aims to bridge the gap between training/graduation and a first commission, and those filmmakers who have not made films for the big screen. We are especially interested in filmmakers from diverse and under-represented backgrounds. We cannot accept applications from students in full time education.
DEADLINE: 6 October 2010
Supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise & ERDF via Screen HI, Edinburgh College of Art, home of Scottish Documentary Institute.
DocuClub in September!
We are happy to announce a partnership with Women Make Movies for our September DocuClub. The screening will take place on Wednesday, September 29, 7 p.m., at 92YTribeca (Take 1, A/C/E to Canal Street).
We will screen a rough cut of FLAT DADDY [www.flatdaddydocumentary.com] by Nara Garber and Betsy Nagler. As military families across the country continue to endure the deployment of loved ones to Afghanistan and Iraq, many attempt to fill the void with “Flat Daddies” and “Heroes on a Stick,” life-sized cardboard cutouts of their husbands, wives, sons and daughters serving overseas. Using these two-dimensional surrogates as a connecting thread, the documentary tells the stories of four such families, from suburban Minnesota, the Bronx, Las Vegas and rural Maine, as they unfold over the course of a year. Each family represents a unique perspective on the war effort and the difficulties of deployment; together, they weave a nuanced narrative of how military families are coping in post-9/11 America as combat operations enter their tenth year.
Co-Director/Producer/Director of Photography Nara Garber divides her time between directing, producing, shooting, and editing. Often wearing many hats on the same project, Garber produces educational documentaries for Carnegie Hall and has helmed productions for major corporations while also collaborating on provocative PSAs for The Point Foundation and the political satirists, Billionaires for Bush. As a DP, she has dragged camera equipment across five continents in pursuit of the perfect shot. In 2009, a documentary assignment took her on a tour of American military bases in Iraq where many of the men and women serving volunteered the opinion that deployment is harder on the families back home. Garber hopes that FLAT DADDY will help bring that statement to life for a larger audience.
Co-Director/Producer/Editor Betsy Nagler is a Brooklyn-based writer and filmmaker. Her producing and directing credits include work for the website of the Working Families Party, for the television show BLUE’S CLUES, and short narrative films shown at the Seattle and Chicago Film Festivals. In 2005, she completed ‘DO, a documentary on how people feel about their hair that received funding from the New York State Council on the Arts through the Brooklyn Arts Council Community Arts Regrant Program. She and Nara Garber then received a NYSCA Individual Artists' Grant for FLAT DADDY in 2008. Nagler earned her B.A. at Stanford and her M.F.A. at New York University.
For her first film, Producer Peggy Sutton directed and produced SQUONKUMENTARY. Selected for the 2005 New York IFP Market, the documentary also screened at the Three Rivers Film Festival, Rehoboth Beach International Film Festival and the 2006 Bend Film Festival. Over the past 18 years, her work as a script supervisor has ranged from big budget movies like MEN IN BLACK II to indies such as POLLOCK.
FLAT DADDY is a fiscally sponsored project of Women Make Movies.
Our moderator will be Rose Vincelli, the Program Manager for the Independent Filmmaker Project [www.ifp.org], specifically focusing on curating and producing the Independent Filmmaker Labs, an immersive workshop assisting first-time Documentary and Narrative feature directors with distribution and exhibition strategies, as well as the Project Forum of Independent Film Week. From 2005-07, she was a programmer for the SILVERDOCS Documentary Festival, helping to grow the festival in its inaugural years and working primarily to curate the Shorts Competition. Vincelli recently produced the short documentaries TRANSPOSITION and NO ONE WANTS TO EAT THE PARSLEY. She lives and cooks in Brooklyn.
