New short film "Khoobi (are you ok)"

Khoobi (are you ok) - 2011 from Amir Motlagh on Vimeo . * This new short film by Amir Motlagh was released yesterday.  In "Khoobi (are you ok)" a character reflects on living in Iran during the Iran-Iraq war, some aspects of Iranian history, and about his attempt to make movies in America.  A well made movie that features a couple of other interesting stories - a clip from an Iranian movie - about several treasure hunters, & a statement being read by a boy who fought in the Iran-Iraq war.  There is humor throughout the movie - low key - specially enjoyed a brief casting scene where an actor persistently tries to play the lead role in a movie.  "Khoobi", though it looks & sounds like a regular/mainstream accessible movie most of the times, is probably most likely an experimental movie - I will let critics & experts in experimental cinema comment on that aspect of the movie.  So, multiple threads, multiple tones, and reflections within reflections -

Diversity In Independent Film Facebook Group page & blog are up

Driven by recent events (FSLC panel discussion that overlooked minority & female indie filmmakers in NYC) & similar incidents over the years, I created a new Facebook page to help raise the profiles of minority & female independent filmmakers - Diversity In Independent Film .  Check it out, join, post relevant links, stories, & other material.  The Fb group page has a dozen or so links already. Also, a blog for the same project has been started - see it here .  The blog will be more accessible to the world since you do not have to log into Facebook to read the content.  Should be able to develop the blog to a pretty good starting point over the next few days, & soon there will be lots of daily stories about minority & female independent filmmakers. - S :: :: :: :: :: ADVERTISING New blogs for projects by NYC artist Katheryn McGaffigan:   Blog 1 http://katherynmcgaffigan. blogspot.com/ Blog 2 http://katherynmcgaffigan2. blogspot.com/ Blog 3 http://

Dear Film Center/Film Society of Lincoln Center...

Posted below is an e-mail that I sent to Film Center/Film Society of Lincoln Center re: volunteering to help organize a panel discussion featuring NYC based minority filmmakers, an idea that rose out of this post at Ted Hope's blog . "Sujewa Ekanayake to filminfo, members, patrons, editor show details 3:38 PM (0 minutes ago) Volunteer to help organize a panel discussion re: minority indie filmmakers in NYC at Film Center Dear Film Center/Film Society of Lincoln Center, I am a New York City (Brooklyn) based independent filmmaker & blogger (see details below my signature) and I enjoyed watching (live on web) the New Faces of NYC Indie Film panel discussion moderated by Ted Hope ( http://blogs.indiewire.com/tedhope/archives/your_second_chance_new_faces_of_nyc_indie_film_video/ ) at Film Center yesterday. Since that panel discussion, and also many other indie film panel discussions that take place in New York City, did not feature many non-"white" filmmake

2 problems w/ Dynamo Player

As you can see above this post I have one of my novies - Date Number One - available via Dynamo Player .  Overall I am very happy w/ Dynamo, except there are two problems that I have not been able to solve yet (after trying several times over the last month): 1 - Can't add a free preview to my program -- the upload happens, then nothing, not sure exactly what's going on here, perhaps it's my computer (though other uploads, to other sites, work fine), may need to try to add a preview using another computer 2 - Can't add a still image for the program -- can't click on the ADD button for an image - nothing happens Other than that, I am glad that the Dynamo option exists for independents.  With a significant amount of publicity work, for some movies, it might be a good distribution option.  Too early to tell for certain, but, Dynamo looks promising (& hopefully I can get my two problems solved soon). - S  :: :: :: :: :: ADVERTISING New blogs for pr

Latest on the EBM (Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center)

So until someone comes up with a better/shorter/easier name, I am going to call the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center - the latest place for art, indie, foreign movies in NYC - the EBM .  Here's some fresh news about the EBM . Yeah, EBM sounds good, but not to be confused with BAM in Brooklyn of course. - S :: :: :: :: :: ADVERTISING New blogs for projects by NYC artist Katheryn McGaffigan:   Blog 1 http://katherynmcgaffigan. blogspot.com/ Blog 2 http://katherynmcgaffigan2. blogspot.com/ Blog 3 http://katherynmcgaffigan3. blogspot.com/ Blog 4 http://katherynmcgaffigan4. blogspot.com/ Blog 5 http://katherynmcgaffigan5. blogspot.com/ Blog 6 http://katherynmcgaffigan6. blogspot.com/ Blog 7 http://katherynmcgaffigan7. blogspot.com/ Blog 8 http://katherynmcgaffigan8. blogspot.com/ Blog 10 (no blog 9, numbered wrong) http://katherynmcgaffigan10. blogspot.com/ Blog 11 http://katherynmcgaffigan11. blogspot.com/ Blog 12 http://katherynmcgaffigan12. blogspot.com/ Blog
