The Doc Challenge
The Doc Challenge is a fun and innovative competition that will push your documentary skills to the limit! Now in its sixth year, the International Documentary Challenge returns to the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto. This year's challenge takes place March 3-7, 2011. The Hot Docs premiere of the Finalists is in early May with a national US TV broadcast on The Documentary Channel to follow soon after.
If you're new to the idea, it's very simple: Filmmakers from around the world are given a genre and a theme and then have 5 days to develop, produce and edit a 4 to 7 minute non-fiction film. The result is an exhilarating five days for the filmmakers, and, as the films reveal, a joy for the audiences at Hot Docs and beyond.
