NewsDocs 2008 Film Festival
This year’s graduate film festival showcases the diversity of our students. The stories range from the Bronx’s homeless gay youth and a community organization called Petrobronx to bedbugs invading the entire city; from the role of Pakistani women, the inspiration of an assassinated leader in Lebanon to the problem of AIDs in the Dominican Republic and child labor in Ghana; from mail order brides, prisoner rights and Asbury Park decay to the disappearing fishermen in Chesapeake Bay.

An interview on the difficulties of reporting with cameras in Iraq with Omer Salih and Marcela Gaviria:

  • Omer Salih, Iraqi Doctor turned filmmaker of “Baghdad Hospital: Inside the Red Zone,” recently on HBO, winner of International Current Affairs Emmy. The film depicts the life of doctors and patients amid the daily violence during the peak of violence in 2006.
  • Marcela Gaviria: producer of “Gangs of Iraq,” for Frontline. The film unearths the facts behind the US strategy in Iraq.

A Japanese, Greek and two American students reported in Ghana as part of our Summer in Ghana Journalism Program where students studied for 3 1/2 weeks and then stayed on to report for another 2-4 weeks.

NewsDocs 2006 Film Festival
The 2005 graduate students took their cameras worldwide to capture stories and events on an international scale—Bosnia, Switzerland, England, France, India, Pakistan, China, Japan—and of course the United States.

Topics range from the difficulties in returning to war-torn areas and integrating immigrant populations to American students traveling to France and NYC high schoolers learning to Samba; life and relations in India and Pakistan, to the travails of successful women in China and explosion of hip hop in traditional Japan.

The screenings are free, and each piece will be followed by a question and answer period with the filmmaker. Join us, Saturday Jan. 28, 2006!

The Washington Square News also covered the Festival: “Grad film festival presents world view”.

NewsDocs 2005 Film Festival
Religion, rehab, prison, labor, politics, development, bikers & children. This year’s films look at how people strive to improve their lives and communities; in and out of prison, across religions, across stereotypes, and within themselves.

The screenings are free, and each piece will be followed by a question and answer period with the filmmaker. Join us, Jan. 22, 2005!

NewsDocs 2004 Film Festival
This year’s films once again capture a variety of events in our world, such as Chechen rebels and the people caught in between, Somalians working in Buffalo, an invasion of Eurasian Watermilfoil, and our own NY Subway turning 100 this year.

Please join us in this free viewing. A question and answer period will follow each piece.

NewsDocs 2003 Film Festival
The 2002 graduate broadcast students took their cameras worldwide to capture stories and events on an international scale. From the AIDS epidemic in Africa to the asthma problems of Harlem, from religious security to marital infidelity, these works delve into issues rarely touched by modern media.
