And here's a first congrats: two Workshoppers and one Workshop teacher are part of this year's American Documentary Showcase:  John Valadez ('03) for "Latin Music USA: The Chicano Wave," Sally Rubin ('09) for "Deep Down," and Stanley Nelson (multi-year teacher and keynote speaker) for "Freedom Riders."  Very exciting!

This seems like a good fit for many of our projects -- let's all keep it in mind for future years.  Here's more info:  The American Documentary Showcase brings award-winning contemporary American documentaries to audiences around the world to offer a view of American society and culture as seen by independent documentary filmmakers.  Funded by a grant from the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and curated and administered by the University Film and Video Association (UFVA), the Showcase highlights the value of documentaries in fostering understanding and cooperation, dialogue and debate.  This year’s films have won recognition and awards ranging from an Academy Award nomination to a National Board of Review Freedom of Expression Award to a Special Jury Award at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam. The documentaries explore diverse topics including civil rights, the treatment of military veterans, environmentalism and freedom of the press. The American filmmakers and film experts participating in the 2011 American Documentary Showcase will travel to Greece, Uzbekistan, India, Bangladesh and more than a dozen other countries throughout the year.



This *is* a great honor!  Congratulations to all!

Thanks Judith! We'll let everyone know how the experience goes. 



Way to go!   Congrats Sally.

I'm going to brag about my fellow 2010er, Kathy Huang, whose film "Tales of the Waria" is one of 17 films the US is submitting for showcasing at the International Public Television (INPUT) conference in Seoul, South Korea in May. Check out her profile here for more about the film.


Here's the complete list of films selected. Perhaps there are more workshoppers? http://www.scetv.org/about/input/

I had the honor of attending a screening of Kathy's fine cut last year. The film is truly beautiful, heartwarming and moving. Congratulations Kathy and team!

Kathy, many congrats, and thanks, Mark, for letting us all know.   Yes, there are other Workshoppers in the list:

- Hugo Perez ('04) directed SEED, which was part of the Future States series.

- Joe Myers ('08) directed TELLING AMY'S STORY.


And the US national coordinator for Input is Amy Shumaker ('04)


So exciting!  Judith




Congratulations Kathy and everyone else for the INPUT selection!


Earlier this month I had the honor of accepting a NETA  "History Programming" award on behalf of Producer Frank Christopher and the team here at Mountain Lake PBS.  It was for the animated documentary "Dead Reckoning: Champlain in America".

Many congrats to you all!
Just noticed in Current that Marcia Franklin was among the producers at Idaho PTV who swept the 2010 Cappy Awards in radio/ small market stations.  Marcia and colleagues did a piece on "Wolf Hunting" that won for in-depth reporting!  Congrats!!

I just read that Dan Golding's ('10) "Chasing Voices: John Peabody Harrington and the Language Revitalization Movement" was awarded a NAPT Open Call grant.


Congratulations and well deserved Dan!
