New for this edition of NSI IndigiDocs: Applicants no longer apply as a team. The course is now designed for individual filmmakers who have an idea for a 10-minute documentary film.
The course will be delivered in two phases. Phase 1 (for all students) is a 12-day boot camp in Winnipeg. At the end of phase 1 all students will have a market-ready film proposal.
In phase 2, a jury will choose up to four students from phase 1 who will go into production, and receive a cash award of up to $16K and approximately $10K of in-kind services. Phase 2 students will work in their own community for the majority of the time and will be paired with an industry mentor to help with development and production. They also attend Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival.
