Tonight's the night (Thursday, September 22) for Docs in Progress.
Celebrate the official beginning of fall with a unique opportunity to
give feedback to documentary filmmakers on their works in progress.
Tonight's featured films are:

A family faces their hopes, dreams, ambitions, and regrets as the
parents prepare for retirement and an empty nest while their 20-
something children get ready for the real world. This personal film
explores the difficulties associated with adapting to the changing
roles and responsibilities of a typical American family.

CAUGHT IN THE NET by the Institute for Documentary Filmmaking
A decade after “dotcom fever” took over Wall Street, we revisit three
Internet entrepreneurs who became unexpected players in big business
in the 1990s How did these kid millionaires deal with their success
and the subsequent burst of the Net Economy bubble?

This event is open to the public and no reservations are required. A
suggested donation of $5 can be paid in cash at the door. Program
starts at 7:00 and lasts until approximately 9:30 pm. Location is
the Jack Morton Auditorium on the campus of the George Washington
University (805 21st Street at H Street, NW Washington DC). The
Foggy Bottom Metro and several parking garages are convenient to the
venue and street parking is sometimes available after 6:30 pm. Note
that street closures related to this weekend's IMF/World Bank
meetings are not scheduled to take effect until Friday.

Docs in Progress workshops are organized by the Docs in Progress
organization and sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George
Washington University.

New user/poster here.

I am currently working on a documentary about an Iraq war
veteran, who shot his own video footage in Iraq, and has since
been speaking out against the war, including in the local
Binghamton, NY area, Crawford, TX for Camp Casey, etc.

Are there any grants or film financers interested in the current
political climate? I've been contacting everyone I know in the
"industry" and few people know of what I should do. This is my
first feature and it's (as of now) been financed by myself, which
is a fun feat making well under a living wage, let me tell you!

But I have a good fifty hours shot so far and am finally
confident in what I have thusfar. If anyone's interested in
hearing more at all, let me know.

anyone out there with an HD camera willing to get involved with
the production of a doc. i'm in NYC and am working on the
preproduction stage. i'm looking for someone willing to work with
no budget. someone who is looking for more experience or wants to
build their portfolio.

the first stage would be to shoot enough footage to put together a
trailer. that would require about 3-4 days of interviews. the rest
of the footage will come from archived news footage. so the work
is not that intense at the moment. all under controlled
environments. mostly just some interviews.

if interested send me an email and i can tell you about the

the subject is social and deals with child welfare. can get

Docs in Progress returns this Wednesday, November 16 at 7:00 pm to

choral group and Hugh Drescher's WE CAME TO REMEMBER about a reunion
of one company of World War II veterans.

The program will take place at the Jack Morton Auditorium in the
Media and Public Affairs Building of George Washington University
(805 21st Street at H Street, NW Washington DC). Closest Metro:
Foggy Bottom. GW parking garages on H and I Streets. Suggested
donation at the door: $5. Cash only.

Docs in Progress is currently soliciting short (30 minutes or less)
documentary works in progress for our next workshop in Washington DC
in January. These can be documentaries intended to be shorts or
segments of a longer documentary which give a good indication of
where the filmmaker is going with the longer piece. Please no
trailers. (We will also be looking for longer works for our spring
workshops, so if you have one, let us know.)

At Docs in Progress workshops, documentary filmmakers screen their
works in progress to a general audience and get feedback through a
moderated critique session. As those who have participated can
attest, these workshops are one of the best ways to get free feedback
and move forward with a project, especially when you may feel stuck
or simply want a reality check on your work before submitting it to
festivals or pitching it for television.

The submission deadline for January is December 1. The first step is
to submit a brief description of the film online at
<> and we will follow up
with information on how to submit a tape or DVD.

Docs in Progress workshops are coordinated by Docs in Progress and
sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington
University. The workshops are held six times a year
(January/March/May/July/September/November) at the Jack Morton
Auditorium on the campus of the George Washington University.

While we give special attention to filmmakers based in the Washington
DC region, we accept submissions from everywhere as long as
filmmakers are willing to cover their own expenses to Washington to
attend the workshop.
