ATTENTION MEDIA MAKERS ADDRESSING AGING AND ELDER RIGHTS

Working Films, with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, announces Reel Aging: Real Change, an initiative that will tie compelling documentary films and transmedia projects that explore aging to ongoing policy work and grassroots campaigns supporting older populations globally. Reel Aging: Real Change will begin on March 23, 2012 with a four-day residency where eight to ten media teams will sharpen their strategies for audience and community engagement. On Tuesday, March 27, the teams will present their projects to regional, national and global NGOs, funders, government agencies, activists, and policy makers – all leaders in the field of aging who have a track record of supporting elder rights, respect and health. The goal: to embed the film and media projects into on-the-ground efforts by the advocates in the room. Hosted in Washington, DC in collaboration with American University’s Center for Social Media, this day-long, strategic convening will launch a collaborative campaign between the participating media makers and the NGOs.

We are seeking applications from media makers for participation in Reel Aging: Real Change. All nonfiction projects that explore the aging experience are eligible to apply, and applicants may be at any stage of production or distribution, from new and completed projects to works-in-progress.

Please complete the application form online at www.workingfilms.org/reelaging

Application Deadline: January 6, 2012

Registration Fee: NONE. The residency includes lodging, meals, and materials. Participants are responsible for covering their own travel; stipends are available.

Please Help Spread the Word: Please forward this announcement to friends and colleagues and share www.workingfilms.org/reelaging on Facebook and Twitter.

The International Documentary Association in association with POV presents:
Doc U: Can Your Doc Really Change the World?

Doors Open: 6:30pm
Discussion & Audience Q&A: 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Join the speakers for a reception following the discussion.

IDA is happy to offer tickets at the IDA member rate to D-Word members

Can a documentary really change the world? These days it seems as though more and more doc-makers are giving it a try. But if you’re hoping to use the power of film to advocate for solutions to complex social issues and to urge people to take action, how can you make sure that your documentary has the greatest possible impact? What kinds of outreach and marketing campaigns are the most effective? How can you best partner with non-profits to get your message out? What do funders and broadcasters expect from documentary filmmakers? And what’s the best way to build a successful social action campaign? The panel of filmmakers, organizational changemakers, and communication experts we’ve assembled address all of these questions and many more. What they have to say could change the way you think about changing the world.

This Monday, join producer/director, and co-founder of Doculink, Robert Bahar (Made In L.A.), as he moderates a discussion with Diana Barrett, founder of The Fledgling Fund, filmmaker Rachel Libert (Semper Fi: Always Faithful, Boomtown), Cynthia Lopez, Co-Executive Producer of POV, and Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams (Music by Prudence), on the ways and means of producing documentary films with the potential to effect real change.

Join us after the discussion at a reception with your moderator, panelists and fellow audience members.

Tonight, New York Film Academy’s Documentary Department will top off a week of classes with three Oscar-winners, the Supervising Editor of HBO’s Documentary Department and A&E's newest showrunner with:

The Winter Screening of The 2011 New York Film Academy Documentary Festival

And YOU'RE INVITED!!!

Come see what NYFA’s latest Doc-stars accomplished in a One-Year Documentary Consortium that utilizes master instruction from industry luminaries and the production of six increasingly complex documentaries to take students from zero experience to the creation of frequently award-winning thesis films.

From Tanzania, to Peru, to a picaresque Italian village and a remote Venezuelan island, this year’s thesis films take you through a vast landscape of surprising stories.

A born-again Alabama athlete faces paralysis and an offer of embryonic stem cells that might help him walk again. Someone finally speaks about a heartbreaking life – and changes the world. A photographer follows the traces of a celebrated but enigmatic poet through Peru, searching for a connection to the only other artist in her family. A unique housing project in the Bronx makes it possible for determined grandmothers to keep their progeny out of the system and off the streets. In a beautiful Italian village, a Moldavian immigrant spends her days and nights caring for a sweet, silent, old woman. The fishermen of Isla Margarita, Venezuela prepare to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the day that The Virgin of the Valley first appeared to watch over them. A small group of abandoned children find a unique home an old, gothic, Greek Orthodox Academy outside Garrison, New York. A once-famous prima ballerina tries to find new symmetry in life after the ballet has ended. And the children of a Tanzanian orphanage use video cameras to explore and record their world, under the watchful eye of a once wanted Black Panther.

Look for the real life Harry Potter in the unlikeliest of appearances and stay for wine, cheese, and a round of diplomas to follow. It’s free!

The Call for Entries for the Red Rock Film Festival of Zion Canyon is open and the entry fee is just $11 until January 2012! Held beneath the red rocks of Zion National Park in culturally unaware* Southern Utah, the tiny international 6th Annual Red Rock Film Festival comes back in November of 2012 with more excellent programming that will both challenge and educate the mind. In 2011, the festival screened 144 films!

The Xtreme sports docs and off-the-charts dramatic features make for surprising accessories to the festival’s staple of humanity-themed documentaries and foreign film.

The festival boasts a strict "no back-door" fairness policy directing all competition entrants, including friends and "high-profile" films to submit online and get in line like everyone else. Judges in the Documentary categories have included Oscar nominee Adrian Belic, Oscar nominee Mia Iskander, Oscar winner Steven Okazaki and several others.

URGENT – Need a shooter to cover a 7pm town hall meeting this evening (12/15) in Cedar Bluff, VA (six hours outside of DC, 3.5 hours out of Charleston, NC, one hour away from Blountville, TN (I think)). I'm up in Boston and can't make it there on time without spending an arm and a leg. It does not need to be the greatest footage on earth, just covered competently.

Please email me directly if you are available or know anyone who might be able to make it there. emodugno@mac.com

DocuClub in January!

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Wednesday, January 18, at 7p.m., at DCTV.

This month, we will screen a rough cut of The Great Chicken Wing Hunt by Matt Reynolds. The Great Chicken Wing Hunt follows a band of misfits on a quest to find the world’s best Buffalo wing. It takes a humorous look at the popularity of Buffalo wings, one of America’s most most loved foods, relationships, globalization, and the way trivial things inspire us. It asks the question, are there perfect things?

Director/Editor Matt Reynolds. From 2004 to 2007, he reported on eastern and central Europe for Reuters and The New York Times. Since moving to New York in 2008, he has worked as a film editor. As an assistant editor, he worked under Suzy Elmiger ("Big Night") and the late Karen Schmeer ("Fog of War;" "Fast, Cheap and Out of Control"). In 2001, Reynolds was editor for the launch of NHL Live, a daily talk show on NHL Network, and recently co-edited History Channel’s "Zombie’s: a Living History." "The Great Chicken Wing Hunt" is his first feature as a director.

Producer Elizabeth Mandel has worked for over ten years as a documentary producer and director. Most recently, she directed "Pushing the Elephant," together with Beth Davenport (broadcast on PBS’s “Independent Lens” on March 29, 2011). Her producing credits include "Arctic Son" (Dir: Andrew Walton, broadcast POV 2007), and, as co-producer on Jennifer Fox’s "Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman."

Supervising Editor Mary Manhardt has cut some of the most respected American documentaries of recent years, including "Street Fight," nominated for an Oscar in 2006, and "American Teen" (2008). Her work has won awards at Sundance, Hot Docs, SXSW, Tribeca and IDFA film festivals and aired on HBO, PBS, MTV, ABC, and AMC. Among the films she has edited or co-edited are "Monica & David," "The Farm" and "Camp Victory, Afghanistan."

Our moderator will be filmmaker Adam Schartoff, who curates the Film/Wax screening series. Learn more about it here: http://schedule.filmwax.com.

There’s a new Documentary Film Workshop starting up in Los Angeles next week, taught by award-winning documentary editor, director and producer Stephanie Hubbard. Stephanie’s workshop is for anyone who is stuck in their doc, looking to start a doc, or needs a little support. Stephanie meets folks wherever they are in the process and helps them to fill in the gaps, and get clear on their story, their fund raising approach and their technical specs for production and post with experience, intelligence, intuition and imagination. She’ll also help you plan for successful distribution.

Get the documentary in your head started and sorted in 90 days! In this powerful workshop, you will:
• Get clear on what you want to say with your film
• Discover the elements and beats of your story
• Optimize your process to save thousands of dollars by working things through before you're done shooting
• Learn from some of the best documentaries ever made, and be empowered to use the same techniques

Choose from: Tuesdays 10:30am to 1:30pm or Wednesdays 7-10pm. Classes begin January 10, 2012. Location is at 5768 Pico Boulevard – two blocks east of Fairfax Boulevard in Los Angeles. Space is limited to 6 participants in each workshop, so sign up now!
The cost for the 12 week class is $300 per month for the 3 month course.

For more information, visit www.thedocumentaryinsider.com or e-mail Stephanie directly: huranghu – at – gmail – dot – com.

More about Stephanie Hubbard:
Stephanie Hubbard has been writing and editing films in Los Angeles since 1996. She wrote and edited her first award winning documentary in 2001, and has worked in documentary ever since. Most recently, she story consulted and edited "MC252" about the Gulf Oil spill, as well as directed, edited and wrote, "Bible Storyland" which has distribution before it's even premiered.

After years of frustration in seeing filmmakers tapped out on their projects without the proper elements to tell the story they wanted to tell, Hubbard began The Documentary Insider Blog and workshop to really help people make the films they wanted to make, cost effectively and artistically. www.stephaniehubbard.com

Call Richmond disappeared in 1977 and remained missing for 20 years.
