NSI IndigiDocs - 2021

Jan 15, 2021

NSI IndigiDocs is a two-phase, part-time online program offering customized training for Indigenous filmmakers who have an idea for a 10-minute documentary film.

During phase 1 starting in mid-February 2021, up to eight students attend an online, six-week boot camp to learn about writing, directing and producing a documentary film. Up to 12 hours each week will be spent in class and working on assignments. All students will have a market-ready film proposal at the end of boot camp. You will also be given a pass for the online Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival 2021.

In phase 2, a jury of senior-level industry representatives will choose up to four students to go into production and receive a cash award of up to $16K and approximately $10K of in-kind services. Mentors will be chosen to work with students as they take their films into production. Completed films have to be delivered no later than March 1, 2022 for broadcast on APTN.

The deadline to apply is January 15, 2021.
