Two upcoming film courses (nyc)

Documentary Media Studies Program
Presented by The New School in New York
Deadline: April 16 (for fall 2007)
The Department of Media Studies at The New School is now accepting applications for its fall 2007 Documentary Media Studies certificate program. Launched in September 2006, this one-year intensive program is designed for college graduates and working professionals interested in hands-on documentary filmmaking. Working closely with faculty and visiting filmmakers like D.A. Pennebaker and Peter Davis, students are encouraged to use the documentary medium to create works of social and political significance.
IFP Narrative Rough Cut Lab
Deadline: April 27
IFP runs two labs annually to instill “readiness” for feature filmmakers. The program is open to first-time narrative filmmakers who have shot all or a substantial amount of the footage required for their features but who have not completed post-production. The 4-day labs are held June 12-15 in New York City and provide a dynamic system of feedback and advice on technical, creative and post-production issues ranging from music clearance to creative editorial problems to festival strategies. The lab is free for the selected projects. (The Documentary Lab deadline is Sept. 10 for Lab dates of Nov. 6-9.)
