Camden IFF expands Points North Doc Forum with NEW ENGLAND FILMMAKER PITCHING SESSION

[Interesting opportunity for our New Hampshire documentary filmmakers...]

Camden IFF expands Points North Doc Forum with NEW ENGLAND FILMMAKER PITCHING SESSION

Recognized as one of the top 25 film festivals in the world for documentary films and filmmakers, the 6th Camden Intl Film Festival will take place September 30 - October 3, 2010. This year the festival will expand its Points North Forum, a gathering of key industry leaders from the documentary community (last year featured representatives from HBO, Sundance, PBS, IFP and funders the LEF Foundation and Gucci Tribeca). The Forum is a unique opportunity for the largely under- served New England non-fiction production community to connect with industry execs through several panels, structured networking sessions, receptions and informal gatherings.

OPEN CALL TO NEW ENGLAND FILMMAKERS!

(DEADLINES - Aug 25th / Sept 1 / Sept 10th 2010!)

New this year is the first Points North Pitch, an opportunity for 6 New England filmmakers to pitch current projects in development to an international delegation of industry leaders who will provide critical feedback and advice. Filmmakers with projects in development are invited to submit proposals (first deadline August 25th, 2010, announcements made mid-September). For more information on the Festival or Forum and how to submit your pitch, visit http://www.camdenfilmfest.org/pointsnorth
