With digital filmmaking, extra RAM is nice but STORAGE is the most important thing.

As TM said, pretty much any iMac (and up) can do the job very well and should be good for years ... but I would say you should plan on buying *TWO* large external hard drives (Firewire if at all possible). The first one will be for media storage (because you *never* want the boot drive to get too full. Trust me on this!) and the second one is to back up the first. Backing up = paramount.
