There's always something great going on at the Maine Media Workshops, a fantastic educational center to hone your craft in filmmaking, photography, multi-media and design located in lovely Rockport, Maine. Next week, they are tapping the local talent by hosting a workshop on documentary financing and distribution with filmmaker and rep extraordinaire Louise Rosen!
Hats off to Channel 4 BRITDOC for taking on the huge challenge of tracking what kind of difference a documentary can make!

When I was at film school, they called it killing your children.

From July 28 through July 30, Northeast Historic Film in Bucksport, Maine is hosting its 12thAnnual Summer Symposium: “Das Wunderkino: A Cinematic Cabinet of Curiosities.” With presentations on peepshow phenomenology, magician/taylor/filmmakers, laryngoscopes, amateur-made trick films, 1980s Australian youth culture, and much more, this is a conference that sounds like it will mentally transport participants even farther than the 227 miles it takes to get there from Boston.
Most people have a summer reading list. I have a summer screening list. Which, thanks to Mike Stoltz, has just gotten longer. LEF Flaherty Fellow Mike Stoltz gives us his "must see" list from the seminar.
Please share in the Flaherty glow. Jesse Epstein shines it brightly!
