THE FOLLOWING EVENT IS TAKING PLACE IN SILVER SPRING, MD -
JUST OUTSIDE OF WASHINGTON DC:

The Docs In Progress Evening with an Expert series returns on Monday May 2. This program will focus on how brings filmmakers and other industry professionals to be engaged in an active distribution campaign for a social issue documentary, using the Emmy Award-winning Out in the Silence as a case study.

Filmmakers Joe Wilson and Dean Hamer will return to Docs In Progress during a brief break from their outreach tour to discuss how they built a grassroots campaign around the film to help raise visibility and use the film as a tool for mobilizing action. Among the topics to be covered:

* Measuring tangible impacts through documentary screenings and discussions
* Building relationships with community partners
* Balancing "old-school" grassroots outreach such as radio interviews, local newspaper articles, fliers, and posters with "new school" methods such as social media, e-mail marketing, website and blog coverage, and online screenings.
* Strategies for fundraising, friendraising, and film sales for social issue films
* How making a difference and making a living through documentary do not have to be mutually exclusive concepts.

WHEN?
Monday, May 2, 2011
6:30 pm Networking and Refreshments
7:00 – 8:30 pm Program and Q&A

WHERE?
Docs In Progress
8700 First Avenue

REGISTRATION FEE?

  • The Docs Insiders Program is an annual membership program. For an annual fee, Docs Insiders get preferred rates on Docs In Progress and partner progrms and access to apply for the Docs In Progress Fiscal Sponsorship Program.

TO REGISTER, VISIT THE DOCS IN PROGRESS WEBSITE.

ABOUT THE FILM
Out in the Silence captures the remarkable chain of events that unfold when the announcement of filmmaker Joe Wilson's wedding to another man, Dean Hamer, ignites a firestorm of controversy in his small Pennsylvania hometown. When the mother of a gay teen being tormented at a school in the town writes to Wilson, he is drawn back on a journey through love, hate, and understanding in rural America. Prior to its completion, Out in the Silence was workshopped through several Docs In Progress programs including Peer Pitch, Work in Progress Screenings, and One-on-One Consultations.

Out in the Silence has been playing the film festival circuit for more than 1 1/2 years, has been funded by the Sundance Documentary Fund, has screened on public television, and recently won a regional Emmy Award for Best Documentary. However, these kudos pale in comparison to the deeper impact the film is making in small towns across America as the filmmakers have taken it to community screenings one town at a time. The aim of this grassroots campaign is to expand public awareness about the difficulties that GLBT people face in rural and small town America and to promote dialogue and action that will help people on all sides of the issues find common ground.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Social activist and filmmaker Joe Wilson was frustrated by the limitations of traditional advocacy, and so he picked up a camera with hopes of reaching broader audiences with stories that inform and compel people to question and act. Wilson's work has been awarded winner of the Videomaker Magazine National Documentary Challenge, Audience Prize at the One-in-Ten Film Festival, and Best Short Film at the Barcelona Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, among other recognitions.

Scientist turned filmmaker Dean Hamer joined the journalism field after being invited to discuss his research on AIDS, human sexuality, and behavior genetics on numerous television news shows. He set out to communicate complex scientific and social ideas through compelling documentaries. Hamer's debut film, The Preacher and the Poet (also an alum of the Docs In Progress Work-in-Progress Screening Program), was a winner at the PBS/Independent Lens Online Shorts Festival. His work also has been awarded the Audience Prize at the One-in-Ten Film Festival, and Best Short Film at the Barcelona Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, among other recognitions. Hamer also has worked on productions for the BBC, Discovery Science, and network news channels. He has written three award-winning books, including The Science of Desire, which was a New York Times "Notable Book of the Year" in 1994.

Wilson and Hamer are partners in filmmaking as well as life, having produced over a dozen pieces for their company, qWaves.

While this talk will not include a full screening of the film, Out in the Silence can be viewed online on Hulu or SnagFilms or can be purchased on DVD or digital download through their a variety of sources.

Producers/Collaborators Sought: Doc Film On People Living In Cars

Hi there,

My name is Jeff and I am a first-time filmmaker. I have been filming footage of people living in cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs since last fall. I also live in my SUV and film my experience too.

Not having gone to film school, I am seeking producers and collaborators with filmmaking experience to help transform this footage into an actual film.

Here’s why you should work with me:

-Having worked on a major political campaign, I know how to make and confirm definite commitments with excellent follow though
-I live in my SUV making me all the more able to earn trust among fellow vehicle dwellers
-If I am able to make this film, because I live in my SUV, it will be an amazing underdog story
-I am an emerging YouTube personality. My videos have received almost 13,000 views in just 3 months, with almost 700 YouTube friends and 125 subscribers (I have not lost a subscriber yet). The channel is: jeff4justice
-I have hours and hours of original/unique footage on this topic
-I have researched this topic extensively
-This is a timely topic because of the economic crisis

Here’s what I have filmed:

-6 Interviews of people living in vehicles
-2 Interviews of government workers & elected officials who have been engaged with this topic
-5 interviews with people working in nonprofits serving homeless people living in vehicles
-2 interviews with local residents in neighborhoods with people living in vehicles
-2 interviews with local representatives of neighborhood groups in neighborhoods with people living in vehicles
-1 interview with a police officer
-1 town hall meeting on this topic

All interview subjects signed media releases forms.

I have also filmed various footage of vehicles that appear to be lived in, traffic scenes, and various filler footage.

Here’s where I have filmed:
Walnut Creek, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Venice/L.A. – all in CA

Here’s what I need to film more of:

-2 interviews with women living in vehicles
-2 interviews with families living in vehicles
-More racial/cultural diversity of interview subjects
-More in-depth follow along of 2-3 people/couples/families living in vehicles

Also, I just learned of a lawsuit involving people living in vehicles VS. the city of L.A. regarding laws that outlaw living in vehicles. Footage of the court events would be great too!

Equipment used:
-Kodak Zi8 camera
-Audio Technica ATR-3350 Lavalier Omnidirectional Condenser Clipon Mics

A 15 minute clip preview is available.

Like documentaries such as An Inconvenient Truth, Out In The Silence, The Cove, and Food Inc., this documentary has great potential be utilized as a platform for social movement to advocate for safe parking programs (similar to what exists in Santa Barbara and Ventura), the repeal/modification of laws illegalizing sleeping in vehicles, and a network of support for people in this situation.

Thank you for your consideration.

-Produced NO on Prop 14 Theatre viral vids in 2010
-Employed as security guard over 5 years – this means I have great FBI and CA Dept. of Justice background checks

Hey all, I am a film major, but in school am not getting enough practical experience. I am friendly and easy to work with and innovative/adventurous. Is anyone willing to take me on as a sidekick or a sort of second shadow this summer? I'm not looking for money or anything like that, I just want to learn and experience. I have a passport and am willing to travel.
I know it's a bit late to be asking for summer experiences, but I had a few internships which have fallen through and now I'm up a creek.
I am a great listener and I'm low maintenance, so you don't have to worry about me getting in your way.
Please consider

If you're interested, please contact me at klemwithak@gmail.com
Have a Great Day, everybody!
-Kevin

I'm an emerging, non-union Director of Photography / Camera Operator with over 10 years of experience working on national TV commercials, music videos, and feature narrative films. My years of working in still photography gave me an extensive understanding of lighting and composition which I've segued into my cinematography. Although, I have no experience in non-fiction storytelling, I am extremely passionate about documenting the truth. As Federico Fellini once said,"My fantasy is to make something REAL". So, please feel free to contact me whether or not your next project calls for a Director of Photography and/or Camera Operator.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS
Rebecca Richman Cohen's WAR DON DON

MONDAY, MAY 9, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Director Rebecca Richman Cohen and producer Francisco Bello in person for discussion with Chris Santora, one of the Sesay trial prosecutors featured in the film!

Rebecca Richman Cohen's remarkable debut film WAR DON DON begins at the end of a decade-long civil war in Sierra Leone which has left a population devastated by mass murder, rape and savage disfigurement. Now, in the capital city of Freetown, United Nations soldiers guard a heavily fortified building known as the Special Court. Inside, a man named Issa Sesay awaits his trial. The prosecution say Sesay is a war criminal, guilty of heinous crimes against humanity. The defense says he is a reluctant fighter who protected civilians and was himself a victim of terrible poverty and violent coercion. Justice Benjamin Itoe says the Court means "to bring an end to impunity and to contribute to the peace and reconciliation process." WAR DON DON presents the trial of Issa Sesay in incredible detail and from myriad perspectives, offering a rare and penetrating view of international criminal justice.

"One of the most viscerally compelling documentaries of the year. It will leave you haunted."
Mary Anderson Casavant, Filmmaker Magazine

"Without eliding the grim human cost of the crimes and criminals involved, Rebecca Richman Cohen's unusually lucid documentary plays against type."
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"Fascinating and complex... a remarkably sophisticated examination of the machinery of justice."
The Independent Weekly, Raleigh, NC

===Bio===

Rebecca Richman Cohen is an award-winning filmmaker and a law school graduate with experience in international human rights and criminal defense. She interned as an investigator at the Bronx Defenders and continued to do investigative work at the Special Court for Sierra Leone, working on a legal defense team for Alex Tamba Brima in the AFRC-accused case. Five months after leaving the Brima defense team, she returned to Sierra Leone to begin production on WAR DON DON. Between trips to Sierra Leone, she has been adjunct faculty at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) where she taught an undergraduate seminar entitled "Human Rights, Mass Atrocity, and Documentary Film" and at American University's Human Rights Institute where she taught "Criminal Justice Stories in Film." Rebecca graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in Portuguese and Brazilian Studies and with a Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School. For her work on WAR DON DON she was awarded the the Cinereach Award for excellence in vital, artful storytelling. WAR DON DON also won the Special Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival. In 2010 Rebecca was profiled in Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces in Independent Film.

Seva Lives (Francisco Serrano) Monday, June 12 at Anthology Film Archives

In 1983, a Puerto Rican newspaper published Seva: History of the first U.S. invasion of Puerto Rico in May 1898. This fictional account of the U.S. invading Puerto Rico and massacring its people was a national sensation. SEVA LIVESdeconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past. Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

I am working on 'Under the Radar' a documentary on the undocumented Irish living in New York. I could do with adivce/help on fundraising options.

'Under the Radar' is a documentary feature that chronicles the lives of the undocumented Irish who immigrated to New York looking for a better life or simply to avoid the unemployment lines back home. It is factual storytelling at its best. It is told from the prospective of three recently arrived Irish immigrants as they navigate their way through a myriad of hurdles in order to stay one step ahead of the immigration authorities. It captures the excitement and disappointment immigrants go through in the Big Apple as they pursue their dreams. It chronicles their fears and aspirations in the wake of 9/11.
Thanks for taking the time.

FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS:
Francisco Serrano's SEVA LIVES

MONDAY, JUNE 13, 7:30 PM, ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES
32 SECOND AVE, NEW YORK, NY, 10003
$9/GENERAL $7/STUDENTS & SENIORS $6/AFA MEMBERS

Filmmaker in person for discussion!

Considered one of the best Puerto Rican films in recent years, SEVA LIVES offers a post-modern look at the history and impact of the U.S. invasion and occupation of the island.

When a fictional story reimagining the U.S. invasion was published in a widely-read newspaper in Puerto Rico, its readers believed it as fact. But like the infamous chaos-inducing Orson Welles radio dramatization of the War of the Worlds, the story was utter fiction simply taken as reality. The story contained letters from a historian who unearthed evidence that the United States did not enter Puerto Rico peacefully in June, as history dictates. Instead, the Americans invaded through a town named "Seva," massacred its people, and covered it up by changing the town's name to "Ceiba," its current name.

This story, as the newspaper tried to make clear, is fiction. Yet readers around the island believed it and a scandal ensued.

SEVA LIVES redefines Puerto Rican history in this update of the classic Puerto Rican short story "Seva." It mixes fictional elements with actual archival footage and real interviews with historians to discuss the significance and impact of the short story today. But, most significantly, SEVA LIVES deconstructs the sociopolitical debate of the facts and myths surrounding the history of Puerto Rico and explores the issues that arise when fiction meddles with recollections of the past.

Organized by Cinema Tropical, this screening celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 7th Robert J. Flaherty Seminar, held in Barranquitas, Puerto Rico.

===Bio===
SEVA LIVES is the first film of director, producer and editor Francisco Serano, whose previous credits as a digital animator include Maldeamores, Party Time and Diez en la Música. Serrano spends most of his time in front of his computer, where he made most of SEVA LIVES. He was born and raised in San Suan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives in Washington, D.C.

Angelenos – still 3.5 hours left to get tickets online to see me in conversation with the Maestro, Doug Block himself, about the Art of the Personal Documentary for IDA's Doc-U series. You can also show up at the door. We'll be having a F2F afterwards in the courtyard, so come out and show your love.

Hi All~

I'm looking for projects that need a stills/footage researcher, or assistant producer. I have years of experience working as a photo editor at various magazines (Newsweek, Vogue, Daily Beast) and organizations (UNICEF, Channel 13, Alarm Will Sound), and am trying to move into documentary film. I'm about to start a two month freelance gig at the New York Times. In addition to my licensing/research experience, I'm also an adept producer for still shoots – and am hoping to apply those skills to documentaries as well. I recently finished research and licensing for a film about Harper Lee, and have also worked on broadcast & live event productions. Last fall I traveled to Iceland, where I collaborated with a photojournalist to make a short documentary about the horse herders. I produced, photographed, and was the audio recordist for Herd In Iceland, which is currently in the editing stage.

Thanks so much for reading.

Thanks!

Hello folks,

I need an AE to come in for a day on Sunday to help me organize/categorize media on my current project (a doc about the Cultural Revolution). We're using FCP7. Basically I need someone to come and organize media files by content rather than date (which is how it's organized right now) so I can quickly and easily locate footage. Piad gig; Los Angeles; Sunday probably 4pm-midnight (or whatever time they get it done).

Please contact me if you or someone you know can do this!

Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I just finished producing a funny, shocking and controversial feature-length documentary. I've got some good things happening already but I'd like to chat with anyone in the documentary community who has contacts/connections/insight and is interested in associate/executive producing. It'd also be nice to make new contacts/friends around the country/world to bounce ideas off with respect to this film, your film, future films, festivals, distribution, producer reps, etc.

I'll leave my trailer, twitter and personal email. I look forward to chatting.

Docs In Progress is now in its seventh year of presenting documentary work-in-progress screenings to the public as a means for filmmakers to get feedback from a general audience. This honest and constructive feedback is aimed at helping the filmmakers get to the next stage of completing and distributing the film.

We are excited to be returning to Washington DC next Friday, June 3 for a program sponsored by our longest-running sponsor, The Documentary Center at the George Washington University. We welcome both filmmakers and non-filmmakers alike to join us to watch and critique the films.

WHAT'S SCREENING?
73 CENTS by Ben Crosbie (15 minute rough cut)
Five days after her husband passed away from cancer, Regina Holliday took up her paint brushes and began a crusade to change the American health-care system, using art as her vehicle for advocacy.

THE LIST by Beth Murphy (82 minute rough cut)
After leading reconstruction teams for the U.S. government in Iraq, Kirk Johnson returns home only to discover that his Iraqi friends and colleagues are being killed, kidnapped or forced into exile by radical militias... all because they worked for the United States trying to help rebuild their country. Stunned by fear-mongering and stagnating bureaucracy that prevents these Iraqis from being rescued, Kirk begins compiling a list of these allies and, one by one, helps them find refuge and a new life in America.

WHEN?
Friday, June 3 from 7:00-10:00 pm.

WHERE?
George Washington University's Media and Public Affairs Building
Lower Level Auditorium (B-07)
805 21st Street, NW (corner of 21st and H Streets)
Washington DC 20052
Closest Metro: Foggy Bottom. Limited street parking free after 6:30 pm. Garage parking nearby on H and I Streets.

TICKETS?
$10 suggested donation ($5 suggested for Docs Insiders and full-time students). Cash only at the door. No advance RSVP required.

This program is organized by Docs In Progress and sponsored by The Documentary Center at the George Washington University. More info at http://www.docsinprogress.org

I'm looking for an editing/overall assistant to work with me in developing my new in-the-works wedding documentary. The ideal candidate has good knowledge of FCP and all things technical, and is extremely (bordering on obsessively) well organized. Brownie points for being a fast learner and fearless self-starter.

Position has fairly flexible days, but requires commitment of 2-3 days per week.

Our office is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This is an unpaid position to start with, save for a daily travel and meal stipend. Hopefully will become paid, in time, as we're trying to raise funding. My films (the latest being The Kids Grow Up and 51 Birch Street ) have been co-produced with broadcasters like HBO, ZDF/Arte and Channel Four and have shown both theatrically and on television throughout the world.

Furthermore, we're a small company and you'll be working directly with me, which previous assistants (at least those who've learned the art of sucking up) say is a priceless experience. For anyone with the ambition to learn documentary directing and producing from the inside, this can be like a one person film school.

To apply, please send me an email telling a bit about who you are, your film experience and what you hope to learn from working on the film: doug (at) d-word (dot) com. Thanks!

Hi Everyone!

Do you know any eccentric folks who might be interested in sharing their "things" with the world?... I'm producing a documentary web series this summer that's currently casting, and I'm hoping you might be able to help. :)

'Here's the Thing…' profiles people through pictures of things in their home. Using a combination of still photographs and voiceover narration, the seemingly mundane ‘things’ examined in the series become vehicles for authentic personal portraits. The series connects people together by showing that no matter how wildly diverse our walks of life, everyone has a compelling story tucked away in their home that other people find fascinating. Check out the show online at http://www.heresthethingtv.com.

If you happen to know anyone who might fit into any of the categories below who also has interesting "things" to showcase & would be into the idea of being featured in an episode, please let me know as soon as possible (we'll be shooting during a road trip across the country from June 15th – July 15th, so folks can be located anywhere in the United States). Also – if you know someone who'd be a great match for the show who doesn't fit any of the below categories, feel free to send their info along to me anyway (we'd be happy to consider her/him).

- politician (DC)
- career gambler (las vegas) (famous poker player)
- roadside attraction type people (weird collections of things, world's largest ball of twine, etc.)
- pastor/minister/preacher
- rock climber
- new ager / witch
- oil man/tycoon
- civil war re-enactor
- soldier on leave, just back from iraq/afghanistan, or otherwise military person
- prisoner
- park ranger (at a classic american national park)
- prostitute or sex worker
- farmer
- native american
- someone who lives in lighthouse
- famous actor/actress or media personality
- self-proclaimed "hillbilly"
- truck driver
- migrant worker
- cowboy
- retired couple who lives in an RV, also traveling cross country

I can be reached at: hello "at" jenniferhowd "dot" com. Thanks so much – and please feel free to pass this info along to your friends!

“Living with Schizophrenia: A Call for Hope and Recovery” is a half-hour documentary film that tells the story of three people who are living meaningful lives with schizophrenia, a chronic and potentially disabling brain disorder. The film sets out to increase understanding and to reduce the fear and stigma often associated with this mental health condition. About one percent of the US adult population, or 2 million, and approximately 24 million people globally are living with schizophrenia.
