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.

ENTRY FEES & DEADLINES
Early Bird Deadline: January 31, 2012, $16

You may enter on withoutabox or link to our online form at http://www.redrockfilmfestival.com/RedPages/entries.html

*Meaning, this is the place where audiences NEED to hear your message. If you keep showing your film to the same easy audiences, no one may be left to show up for your theatrical release. Plus the filmmaker hikes in the Canyons are the icing on the cake!

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
