I'm on NAPT's email list.
I think I signed up on their home page: http://www.nativetelecom.org/
(See, that wasn't so hard, was it, Jay? All the rest of you, give Jay props by following his lead and letting us know of your awards and such!!)
Okay then. I learned a couple of weeks ago that my next film "The Assassination of N.G. Gonzales" was awarded a major grant from The Humanities Council of South Carolina. I was going to apply for a few more grants but, given the current assault on public broadcasting, I think I better get this film made as soon as possible.
Congratulations Jay and congratulations Daniel!
New Boston-related news for Deep Down: we've finally secured a Boston prime time broadcast for the film! Deep Down has been given the following air dates:
Wednesday, 5/25, 10 –11pm
Thursday, 5/26, 10 –11pm.
The film screened on Independent Lens in November but never did have a primetime Boston broadcast because it was the week of the Thanksgiving fund drive. So if you live in Boston and want to see the film, this is your chance. Check out www.deepdownfilm.org for more.

Mara Agui Carter, Chairman of the NALIP Board of Directors [AND WORKSHOP '05!], has produced a new feature documentary film with director/producer Michele Fillion, narrated by Julianna Margulles. The documentary has been selected for its festival premiere at the Sarasota Film Festival on Sunday, April 10.
"No Job For a Woman" is a film about how war reporting changed when women reporters, previously excluded from war zones, found their way in. The film follows the stories of three courageous women journalists who are driven to change history by writing it themselves. It illuminates the ways in which their groundbreaking journalism affected the world's understanding of the war.
