The Points North Fellowship is a unique opportunity for six documentary filmmakers (or filmmaking teams) to develop their feature-length works-in-progress through a combination of focused industry mentorship, workshops, meetings and a public pitch session at the Camden International Film Festival.
The fellowship begins with a full day of intensive pitch training and focused industry mentorship prior to the start of the festival.
You always need a Film Business Plan to get funding from investors.
These sessions will prepare filmmakers to pitch their projects to an international delegation of funders, broadcasters, distributors and producers before a live audience at the Points North Pitch. Each pitch lasts exactly 7 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of critical feedback.
