The Times BFI 51st London Film Festival Education Program
17 October â€“ 1 November
The Education Program includes feature and short films from around the world at FREE screenings in cinemas across London.
You and your students are invited to a series of FREE screenings and events taking place during the Times BFI 51st London Film Festival Education Programme.
With a special focus on Documentary, there are several films for audiences interested in exploring non-fiction film.
HOLD ME TIGHT, LET ME GO, is a must see for anybody who works or is looking to work with children with behaviour problems or film students interested in Documentary making. This observational documentary by famed director Kim Longoniotto looks at a boarding school in Oxford for excluded children who suffer severe emotional trauma.
RETURN TO GOREE is a lively documentary following the journey of Senegalese singer Youssou Nâ€™Dour as he traces the history of music from West Africa to countries of the African Diaspora. The film interweaves history, music and investigative documentary styles in an accessible and fascinating portrait.
Director Nick Broomfield again crosses the line between fiction and documentary with his film BATTLE FOR HADITHA, which re-creates the events of a battle between US-Marines and Iraqi civilians in 2005. Renowned for his maverick documentary-practices, Broomfield here uses the fiction genre but his employ of non-professional actors and real situations make for an interesting discussion of blurring fiction/non-fiction boundaries.
All films are facilitated by an education professional and will include Q & A with the director or specialist speaker.
For information on this and other films showing for FREE to education audiences as part of the Education Program of the Times BFI London Film Festival, please visit:

I'm headed to NY next week to shoot my close friend
(and great artist) Lucinda Williams in concert. It's a no budget
shoot - a labor of love. But she's one of the best in the country at
what she does. And she rarely lets anyone videotape her, so this is
an extremely rare event.
I'm looking for camera operators willing to work for little to no pay
- basically for the love of the music. In return they get to witness
one of the best live acts in the country today. These shows also
promise a series of special guests. (I just finished shooting 5
nights in LA - guests included Emmy Lou Harris, Robbie Krieger ((the
Doors)), Mike Campbell ((Tom Petty's band)), Steve Earl and more.)
It's a perfect opportunity for an AC or operator who wants to add
some celebrity footage to their reel. And it's an even better opportunity for
anyone who loves shooting good music. She's playing 5 nights in NY. 2 at Irving
Plaza Sept 29 and 30. 3 @ Town Hall Oct 2-4.
One last thing - we're shooting mini DV. 24p. 16:9 aspect ration.
Hello, everyone. Just wanted to let you know that I am conducting a seminar in documentary filmmaking in Santa Monica, CA the weekend of October 13-14th. It's called The Documentary Film Makers Course and taught by myself and Genevieve Jolliffe, the authors of The Documentary Film Makers Handbook: a Guerilla Guide. We teach from a practical standpoint as opposed to theoretical.
Go to www.script-tonic.com or call 310-941-2168 for more info. We will give $50 off to anyone from The D Word. Call to get a coupon code. Hope to see you there!
Do you or someone you know want to get paid to write about your
experience at the Hamptons Film Festival, London Film Festival or the Hollywood Film Festival? We're looking for someone to be our "Festival Tour Roadie" who can submit some blog entries for
For example we had Robert Ell, the talent booker for Dailies, do the one
It's just a way to get a little local color on the site.
Have a great weekend!
Just took on a new feature film but will be free as of Feb/1/2008.
Sound mixer with experience wants to work on your documentary.
Tamra, do you want anything from DOK Leipsig? Email me if so please. When I go down it will be to concentrate on the target country co-production meetings that last about two or three days. But the week-long festival is celebrating its 50th and has what sounds like a wonderful range of films. Worthwhile getting someone else, if not me, to write about that.
I am looking for a person that would be enthusiast about video editing, operating cameras, Internet video hosting sites, blogs, organization, and communication.
Job would require (Mac) capturing, logging and editing.
Posting video on web on sites like YouTube, MySpace mymovienetwork.com and etc.
Monitoring web sites and communicating through blogs, e-mail and letters.
Burn DVDs and send video files and operate camera on video shoots.
Pretty much doing everything.
This is in the midwest. Small town of 4000. Chicago, Minneapolis, Des Moines and others are 3 hours away. Great pubs in town though. Dubuque is 24 minutes east and Iowa City is 60 minutes south.
My editor is graduating from college and moving on to a nursing career.
Looking for a Sound Mixer and HD camera assistant local to Noa Scotia, Canada, for a PBS documentary series show about sustainable architecture. Shoot dates are Oct 15 - 23. Please email Soo w/your resume if interested. Thanks.
I'm looking for a line producer to assist in developing the budget for my documentary "Project One".
"Project One" addresses the factors that influence unhealthy relationships and sexual behaviors, examine current HIV/AIDS prevention policy and its effectiveness, empower girls and women to create better lives, explore ways to shift attitudes, foster positive change, inspire, educate and entertain one person at a time.
Please email me your resume and/or experience.

London International Documentary Festival 2008
- A Conversation in film
CALL FOR FILMS
PocketVisions is calling for film submissions for the expanded London International Documentary Festival (LIDF) - A Conversation in Film, 2008. The festival is presented in association with the London Review of Books, and with the support of the British Museum. 2008 sees a continued association with The Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival (New York).
The LIDF will run for 6 days between Monday 31st March, and Saturday, April 5th, 2008. The opening and closing night gala screenings and reception will take place at the British Museum. Other venues include the Barbican Centre, the Curzon Soho, the Renoir Cinema and the Roxy Bar and Screen.
The call for submissions goes out to an international field of applicants. All successful applicants will be invited to be present at the LIDF. We are looking to support new and innovative filmmaking talent, and to ask filmmakers to participate in a series of intertwining â€˜conversationsâ€™ to be run alongside the screenings. These â€˜conversationsâ€™ will involve academics, journalists, policy-makers, NGOs, and other cultural commentators.
The LIDF is calling for documentary films produced between January 1st 2006 and December 6th 2007, and is particularly, although not exclusively, interested in films that fall within the following categories:
* Human Rights
* Heritage and the Arts
* Other social and development issues
Submission Procedure: Film-makers can enter their films, pay entry fees and find out how to submit their DVD or VHS preview copy at http://www.lidf.co.uk
Once the on-line submission has been made entrants will receive a confirmation email and a unique Entry Reference Number.
Deadline for Submissions: 6th December 2007
Late entries accepted until 30th December with penalty (see regulations). Films can only be returned if the â€˜return feeâ€™ is included in the submission.
Selected films from the LIDF will be automatically submitted for selection to the Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival, November 2008.
We look forward to seeing your films.
Dok Leipzig, 29.10 - 04.01, I will be commuting most of that week between Berlin and Leipzig, by car, several times. The drive is a bit over 2 hours each way.

Hi Soo Kim,
I don't have anyone to recommend, unfortunately, but I did work as an editor at an Architecture magazine here in Toronto that takes a huge interest in sustainable architecture. They run a Green issue every year and it's thoughtful. Really parses what we mean by green and doesn't seem to be after the ad dollard like a lot of publications. If you would like me to pass on the name of an editor there for a potential interview, I'd be happy to do so. Best of luck in your search!
In reply to Soo Kim's post on Tue 2 Oct 2007 :

Just finished a big project and can't keep everything. Time to start the next one! Hopefully we won't need three AVIDs, two cameras and 16 terrabytes of storage on the next one....exhausting!
Curses, you're not selling a Sony DSR-11 deck for a ridiculously low price.
you in the market for a DSR-11?
i've been giving some thought to selling mine...
Might be, Riley. Have one already but would be good to have a second for clones. It would have to be pretty cheap, though, because it's probably overkill for what I need.
what price, riley? i might be interested...

(I'm not quite sure why the Topic Cops erased your post in "Shameless Self Promotion" because many, many others have done the same thing; and as far as double-posting goes, i think it kind of makes sense for you to post both in the public and private topics b/c not all members read the public postings...)
Anyways, congratulations again and have a wonderful time! If I can make it out the ArcLight, I certainly will stop by and say hi.
Explanation given in the Shameless topic. But, hey, are Topic Cops not human?

THE WALK-ONS by Tim Durham and Aimee Nowland (30 minutes)
College football may be best known for the frenzied competition for top recruits. But what of the local students who want to play for the team? With no full rides offered, these kids work part-time jobs to pay for their tuition. Trampled daily and sold on the hope that after a season or two, they might catch the coach's eye, these walk-ons are not ready to let go of their dreams to go further than the practice field.
MARE IGNOTUM (SEA OF MYSTERY) by Loretta Oleck Berger and Linton Suttner (70 minutes)
It's hard to miss Max Shapiro. Whether on his Harley or showing off his tattoos and pet snake, Max has traveled many lonely roads in his 70 years. But it is the less traveled inner road which most interests his niece as she takes us on a journey to discover more about him and herself in the process.
