March 19, 2018 – Vancouver – National Film Board of Canada (NFB)
The National Film Board of Canada’s Quebec and Atlantic Studio and LJH Films are reaching out to emerging and established Nunatsiavummiut filmmakers from or in Labrador who have an interest in documentary storytelling, with a call for submissions for the Labrador Doc Project.
The Labrador Doc Project is looking for stories that that surprise—and deepen Inuit’s understanding of themselves.
The project’s goal is to collaborate with established and emerging Nunatsiavummiut artists, ages 18 and up. The Labrador Doc Project will support projects that are 10–15 minutes in length, located in Nunatsiavut, realized over five shooting days.
The NFB and partner LJH Films are committed to building capacity in remote areas and supporting training initiatives to build Inuit film crews, so there are plenty of opportunities for Inuit applicants who are interested in hands-on experience in other filmmaking positions, even if they don’t have a project of their own that they’d like to direct: cinematographers, sound recordists, editors, photographers, musicians, writers, production managers and more!
Project directors are invited to e-mail a short proposal to Stephen Agluvak Puskas at firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the story idea, your personal connection to it and why you want to tell this story, no later than April 13, 2018. NFB producers will choose three stories and notify the successful applicants by May 4, 2018.
