Shri, we focus on documentaries here, but the upcoming festivals that come to mind are Toronto, Sundance and Berlin. The advice we usually give is to go after the biggest and best first, especially for your world premiere. Lots of luck.

I have a slightly used (one project) Underwater housing for a BVW Betacam SP camera that is surplus to requirements. Could be adapted to Panasonic HD or other camera.

Housing has Anvil shipping case and is located in St Martin.

Azad Jafarian

Hello Everyone,

I am a programmer for the 2nd Annual Cinema Verite – Iran International Documentary Film Festival – which takes place in Tehran October 15th-19th, 2008. We're still looking for films to feature in the following categories (see hidden section). Let me know if you or someone you know has a film that fits into any of these categories. We will fly out a number of the filmmakers to Tehran with four nights stay (and we'll take care of visas for you as well). Looking forward to hearing from you.

America, Post America

America is no longer the strongest, the best, biggest and most powerful country in the world. The American Dream is fading away as the American way of life is slowly forgotten. What will become yesteryear's utopia in the post-American era?

Our Era

Our era is a strange era. Our era, is the era of science, end of darkness and the reigning of machines. Our era, is one of fragmented identities, lost pasts and virtual imagery. But our era, is still an era of fanaticism and oppression, blind politics, dictatorships, injustice and hunger. The documentary film is committed to reflecting our times, our era.

Our Universe

Once upon a time, the nature served as a source of inspiration for artists, philosophers and poets alike. Today, nature is witnessing its own destruction in the hands of an ignorant self-serving mankind with suppressed anger. Are we going to return to nature? Or are we going to destroy it oblivious to our own demise?


Somewhere between dreams and reality, storytelling, direct observation and experimentation, the documentary film greets experimental cinema with open arms. New experiences are born from this union.

Special Screenings

Watching the documentaries in this section is an experience beyond a personal journey of exploration. These screenings take us to the far corners of the world through the eyes of some of the world's most adventurous and worldly documentary filmmakers.
