Creative Saskatchewan is teaming up with the National Film Board to create a remarkable opportunity for emerging documentary filmmakers.
The NFB’s North West Studio is announcing the launch of Doc Lab Saskatchewan, a 10-week intensive program for emerging documentary filmmakers, taking place from September 4 – November 17, 2017.
Over the course of the program, three participants will each complete a short (5-7 min) documentary, going from concept to post-production.
During this time, participants will work with an experienced production team, led by NFB producer Jon Montes, director mentors (TBA), and professional crew.
It’s an incredible opportunity to develop visual storytelling skills and gain insight into what it takes to produce a documentary.
The Doc Lab is open to Saskatchewan-based filmmakers who have completed no more than 3 productions (not including film school or training projects), or other artists/creators/storytellers who have the equivalent experience in their own field and are interested in exploring the form of documentary.
Participants will each be paid about $10,000 through writer and director fees from the NFB.
Deadline to apply is Friday, July 14, 2017 at 5pm CT.
A jury made up of members from the NFB’s North West Studio, along with other industry professionals, will review and make decisions on all proposals.
We are committed to a diversity of stories and perspectives and are seeking participants from across the province.
Even if you’re not a filmmaker, you can still apply. We welcome proposals from creators of all kinds in all media who are interested in exploring documentary.
