The Points North Fellowship, part of the Camden International Film Festival, is a unique opportunity for five documentary filmmakers (or filmmaking teams) to develop their feature-length works-in-progress through a combination of focused industry mentorship, workshops, meetings and a live, public pitch session – the Points North Pitch. Past panelists at the pitch include representatives from BBC, HBO, A&E IndieFilms, ITVS, POV, Sundance Institute, Tribeca Film Institute, Participant Media, Al Jazeera, Discovery and ARTE. Fellows are eligible to win a pitch prize that features a $1000 cash prize from Documentary Educational Resources, three consultations with the Tribeca Film Institute, and a discounted post-production package from Modulus Studios.
Selected fellows will receive two All Access Passes to the 2014 festival, four nights of accommodations and a stipend to subsidize travel to Camden. Following the festival, fellows will also receive a ticket to the Cinema Eye Honors (held in mid-January), an invitation to CIFF’s annual Nominees Party and two nights of accommodations in New York, and an All Access Pass to the 2015 festival. The fellowship is open to all filmmakers with feature-length documentaries in progress. The deadline for submission is July 18, 2014 at midnight.
