Our friends at the Camden International Film Festival have partnered with the New York Times to create the first Op-Docs pitch event in North America. Documentary filmmakers from the United States are invited to submit their ideas for short documentaries that fit the editorial and creative scope of the New York Times Op-Docs series. View the films at NYTimes.com/OpDocs. The deadline for entries is Friday, August 9, 2013 at 11:59pm EST.
Selected filmmakers will pitch their ideas on stage at the Points North Documentary Forum, taking place September 26-29, 2013. The filmmaker with the winning pitch will have an opportunity to produce an Op-Doc for The New York Times with a budget of $2,000 (USD). Subject to The New York Times’ approval, the documentary will premiere on NYTimes.com. For more information, visit: http://camdenfilmfest.org/pointsnorth.
