Fulbright Scholar Program for US Faculty and Professionals
The Fulbright Scholar Program is offering 12 lecturing, research or
combined lecturing/research awards in film studies during the 2008-
2009 academic year. U.S. Fulbright Scholars in 150 countries and all
regions of the world enjoy an experience of a lifetime, one that
provides a broad cultural perspective on their academic disciplines
and connects them with colleagues at institutions around the globe.

Awards range from two months to an academic year. Faculty and
professionals in film studies may apply not only for awards
specifically in their field, but also for one of the many “All
Discipline” awards open to any field. Grants are awarded to faculty
of all academic ranks, including adjunct and emeritus. In most
countries lecturing is in English, though awards in Latin America,
Francophone Africa, and the Middle East may require proficiency in
another language.

The application deadline for Fulbright traditional lecturing and
research grants worldwide is August 1, 2007. U.S. citizenship is
required. For other eligibility requirements, detailed award
descriptions, and an application, visit <http://www.cies.org>, or

The Irish Film Institute
6 Eustace Street
Temple Bar
Dublin 2
This is a distributor screening for Irish and UK distribs. All U.S.
distribs have passed and I am assuming all the rest will too....
This is our final effort to find a distributor. I am now focusing on
self-distributing the dvd. We are in need of funding for it. "Home"
was completely self financed and I'm unable to continue financing
it. So if anyone is interested in seeing the film, or has any ideas
on who in Ireland we can approach for funding or invite to this
screening, please let us know. I don't have the funds to make it to
the screening, so I won't be there, but you can reserve a seat with
the co-producer, writer and narrator of "Home", Alan Cooke
call 086 179 1410 or email alanmcooke@gmail.com

Oulu Music Video Festival introduces MusiXine International Music Film
Contest into its film programme, making MusiXine the burning point of
the upcoming festival. MusiXine adds a new dimension to the OMVF scene
that already includes music videos, special screenings and air guitar
battling. The contest will be arranged during the 14th edition of the
festival on 5-9 September, 2007.

MusiXine is a contest for films on music, music making and related
phenomena, and the MusiXine Main Award for the best film in tune
totals *10,000.

As an annual part of the Oulu Music Video Festival from now on,
MusiXine will showcase the latest trends in music film. The contest
will aim to encourage new film artists, their work and ideas, bring
out the music film as an art form and serve as a forum for screening
films on various music phenomena. In MusiXine, films will be evaluated
for their cinematic merit in the context of music film, and the most
important evaluation criteria for a successful work are the film's
insightful treatment of its topic and its artistic achievements.

SAGAS IS STILL HIRING DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKERS

Quit wasting your time working 3 day jobs that have nothing to do with
filmmaking. You can actually earn money shooting interviews with
people in your community by working with SAGAS.
We launch to the public with a nationwide marketing campaign on August
1st, but we are paying for demo videos nationwide right now to test
our systems, so sign up now!
www.sagas.com/interview

In case you still haven't heard of us, here's the story:

Dear Videographer,

We are proud to announce SAGAS, a new and exiting company that offers
customers the ability to record personal history video interviews with
individuals and small groups anywhere in America. You can think of
Sagas as the 1-800 Flowers for locally recorded video interviews and
interviewers.

We would like to offer you the opportunity to join the SAGAS Family
http://www.sagas.com/interview.htm . This is a way that you can
develop an additional income stream by working in your free time.

SAGAS was founded by David Hoffman, a veteran documentary Filmmaker
with over 40 years of experience ( www.thehoffmancollection.com). He
has made over 200 films and has won about every national and
international award including Emmy's and the Cannes Critics prize.

Shortly, we will begin promoting SAGAS nationally. SAGAS will build a
national brand, supported by a professional marketing campaign. This
is an independent contractor relationship. We consider our
videographers our partners.

When SAGAS receives an order, we will email the job description to
each registered Videographer that is willing to work in the area code
that the interview will take place. The first response accepting the
job will get the job. SAGAS will be careful not to over saturate the
videographer pool in any given location. This will ensure that
registered interviewers get their fair share of the work. So register
soon.

Shooting a Sagas video interview is simple. It is a one hour
interview; the entire call should not take more than 3 hours. No
editing is involved. When the Videographer accepts the job, they
receive the subject's contact information, and a one-page paper from
the customer that describes questions or topics that the customer
would like raised. The shoot style consists of an informal interview.
The videographer will sit in front of (and to the side of) their Mini
DV camera which is mounted on a stationary tripod. No lights are
required. The finished unedited miniDv tape will be sent directly to
Sagas who will pay within three days of receipt and review. Sagas
will pay $250 for each interview with an additional premium applied in
certain areas. Sagas has created a variety of training and self-help
tools, including demo interviews conducted by Hoffman. These should
help you to become a more skilled interviewer.

In two months, Sagas will go live and begin offering its services to
customers across the nation. We will begin promoting SAGAS nationally
so if you are interested in trying this out, please register now at
http://www.sagas.com/interview.htm

Best regards,


J.J. McCabe

READ THIS GREAT REVIEW FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES:
NEW YORK TIMES MOVIE REVIEW | 'FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE
WOMAN'
"Talking About Her Issues, Taking Them on the Road"
July 4, 2007

By JEANNETTE CATSOULIS

For most people, one therapist is enough; for Jennifer Fox, a
Manhattan filmmaker in her 40s,
exploring what she cheerfully calls her “messed-up self” required
a bit more input.
In “Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman,” Ms. Fox takes her issues
on the road,
soliciting advice from female friends in more than a dozen
countries.
In the process, she learns that she is not unique.

Part personal diary, part transglobal slumber party, “Flying” is a
six-hour exploration of modern
womanhood humming with talk of men. During kitchen-table chats and
late-night meltdowns,
women as diverse as an Egyptian journalist and an Indian civil
rights lawyer struggle to
control their finances and their fertility.

Turning narcissism inside out, Ms. Fox uses her own romantic
crisis — a rocky impasse
between a married South African lover and a sweet Swiss boyfriend
— to connect,
sometimes hilariously, with women whose choices are far less
luxurious. Her humility
is the film’s strength; employing a technique she calls “passing
the camera,”
the filmmaker shares point of view to create a living
conversation.

By turns playful, sexy, tragic and contemplative, “Flying” is an
addictive soap
about sexuality and sisterhood. And if that makes the average
man’s eyeballs roll,
all the more reason for his honey to buy him a ticket.

LA Film Screening of "Polka Time" at Broad Humor Film Festival

My zippy little documentary "Polka Time" is going to be at the Broad
Humor Film Festival next Saturday the 25th at 6:30p in rockin Venice,
CA.

http://www.channelsusan.com/broadhumor/fest.htm

It's in the Shorts program before the "Laughing Matters...More" docu-
comedy. Should be a good night for fun documentaries!

Here's a brief description of "Polka Time":

Five Days. Three Ballrooms.
Thousands of polka-loving partiers.

For 30-plus years people from all over the country have
RVed to a tiny town in Minnesota for an epic event.

The Gibbon Polka Fest.

Join the throngs in this zippy cultural documentary.
Festivalgoers tell their own stories. And along the way
we’re treated to some mighty fine dancing,
a romance or two, and, perhaps, the hottest
new polka band around--
Jon Dietz and the Twin Lakes Trio.

The other is a documentary classic, stripped down and retrofitted with a new soundtrack by Ken Thomson, performed by New York avant-jazz vikings Gutbucket. Both come courtesy of the True/False Film Fest, a group of upstart Midwesterners hellbent on showcasing all that is new,nontraditional and genre-defying in nonfiction filmmaking.

And for IFP participants and D-Worders and T/F alums, we'll be throwing a party afterwards. Hope to see you there.
