Are you producing or planning a documentary in the Arab World, in general, or in Morocco, in particular? If you are and need a fixer, cultural consultant, facilitator, or basic translator, I am qualified and excited to contribute to your production. This region's dynamism delivers a constant flow of content ripe for documentation and fresh perspective--the Arab Spring; (mis)perceptions of Islam; the post Bin Laden Al Qaeda; its ongoing wars and conflicts; growing sectarianism; gender issues...the list is always rich. I'm knowledgeable and passionate about this region's history, culture, and its peoples and would be eager to channel this insight into documentary film-making. Please check out my profile for essential info and contact me for a full resume/more details: alex(dot)safos(at)gmail.com. Thanks for keeping me in-mind if the right opportunity presents itself. –Best, Alex

Looking forward to the camera pictures. You still trying to get rid of your EX? I know a couple of people I can ping that might be interested – we're all in DC.
Considering to hire a press/outreach manager at the Montreal World Cinema Festival for my doc Karla's Arrival which will be in the Documentaires du Monde section. Any suggestions? Also, what should I expect to be spending?
This is an ITVS supported award-winning human rights doc about a young homeless teenager trying to raise her baby in a park in Managua, Nicaragua. Montreal will be its North American premiere. See also: www.karlasarrival.com. More info re this job: info [at] elrayofilms dot] com
My name is Jeff Dreyer. I'm a father of a Special Needs 22 yr old child. I'm so very tired of hearing the derogatory, demeaning and hurtful word "retard" being used so rampantly these days. I made an 18 minute documentary titled "it's Just Not Funny". The premise is to get the entertainment industry to take the word "retard" out of their scripts. The video was on YouTube for nine days only. It had almost 600 views though. I had over 30 wonderful comments on YouTube, and I received from across the country another 100 positive messages on my Face Book page and my firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail.
Here's the issue. The Special Olympics Southern Cal. made me take it down, because they said some of my content is negative towards the entertainment industry. That's the idea. Someone has to step up an speak out against the offenders that perpetuate this use. It's everywhere these days. TV, movies, talk shows, interviews et cetera. The person that edited it for me isn't interested in continuing with my project. I need someone to help me take the SOSC logo out of some of the footage, and remove their name from the credits. I then want to enter the documentary in some film festivals. If the right person with some horse power in the business viewed it, and they have a Special Needs child, sibling, relative or friend, the doc would catch fire. Then possibly we can make the doc larger and get some results. Anyone that would like to volunteer about five hours would certainly be included in the credits. I live in S. Orange County Cal. I could come up to Los Angeles if need be. Thanks, Jeff
Only 19 days left for our Kickstarter fundraising campaign to complete and we need YOUR support to reach our goal. If you haven’t contributed yet, please click here to donate to our project so we can bring the much-needed humanitarian help to women who are victims of sex trafficking.
The US State department Trafficking-In-Person report (TIP report) clearly indicates the stagnation of Israel’s enforcement in regards to sex trafficking. After speaking to a senior Police official who specializes in curbing sex trafficking in Israel, he revealed to me in a personal interview that trafficked women numbers are rising again, and this time, the traffickers are choosing South American women as their target.
Thank you for your support and for donating to HOLY GHETTO film.

I'm posting this for a good friend, Jackie, whose daughter is moving to London:
Two recent university grads from the States are looking for a flat in London. Both have jobs at starting salaries, (one at a law firm in Hammersmith and the other at Reuters in Canary Wharf) and are looking for a (furnished) flat on a convenient tube line for both. Would appreciate any leads and/or a suggestion of a real-estate agent who could be helpful. Arriving in London July 18th and can begin looking at flats then. Thanks!
Please email: Jackieleop(at)aol(dot)com.

DocuClub in July!
Our July DocuClub will take place on Wednesday, July 27, 7 p.m., at DCTV, located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker).
This month, we will screen a rough cut of Quel Souvenir by Danya Abt. In 2003, construction was completed on a pipeline that stretches a thousand kilometers from the oil fields of Chad to the beaches of Cameroon. Funded by oil giants Exxon, Chevron and Petronas, and politically insured by the World Bank, the Chad-Cameroon Oil Pipeline was a beacon of hope to the Chadian and Cameroonian people. It promised to spread prosperity and opportunity through some of the poorest communities in the world. *Quel Souvenir* follows the path of the Chad-Cameroon pipeline to witness its lasting effects, featuring the compelling individuals who live along its path. From the fishing ports of Kribi to oil installations of Doba, the stunning diversity of the landscape through which the pipeline passes reflects the many different Africans who live with it daily. Despite their differences, the communities along the pipeline speak with one voice to ask “If the land is so rich, why are we so poor?” As the world looks increasingly to Sub-Saharan African to satisfy its thirst for oil, this timely film asks what is the human cost of this extraction, and how oil effects the struggle for survival, the fight for democracy and the dream of peace. To see a trailer, please go to: http://danyaabt.com/?p=95.
Director/Producer Danya Abt’s desire to use film to create a more just and peaceful world has driven her from her native Detroit to the bayous of Louisiana and as far as the deserts of Central Africa. Her films have been featured at the MoMa in New York, the Detroit Institute of the Arts and a variety of community gathering places to generate dialogue and inspire social change. Most recently, Abt served as Senior Video Producer for GRITtv with Laura Flanders. Her work will be included as part of PBS syndication in the fall.
Our moderator will be Chi-hui Yang, a film programmer, lecturer and writer based in New York. As a guest curator, Yang has presented film and video series at film festivals and events internationally, including the 2011 MOMA Documentary Fortnight, 2008 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar (“The Age of Migration”), Seattle International Film Festival, Washington D.C. International Film Festival and Barcelona Asian Film Festival. From 2000-2010, he was the Director and Programmer of the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, the largest showcase of its kind in the U.S. Yang is also the programmer of “Cinema Asian America,” a new On-Demand service offered by Comcast and currently a Visiting Scholar at NYU’s Center for Media, Culture and History.

I am interested in transcribing audio interviews for anybody. I worked for Filmmaker Magazine, and have a lot of experience in transcribing interviews that ran anywhere from 10 minutes to nearly two hours. I am very astute, and would transcribe it all, then listen to it again to catch anything that slipped by me. My fee would be $2 a minute, so if the interview is 30 minutes, it would be $60. However, I am open to negotiations.
Please let me know if there is anything you need to be transcribed and would like my services.
