The 12th Camden International Film Festival and Points North Documentary Forum will be held in Camden, Rockport and Rockland from September 15 to 18, 2016.
This past September, CIFF and Points North hosted over 100 filmmakers, film industry representatives and journalists, with filmmakers in attendance at nearly every screening and more development opportunities for features and shorts through Points North — all making the 11th edition our most successful festival to date.
We will soon be announcing a year-round, statewide screening tour focusing on the theme of Sustainable Maine — the result of our annual Points North Engagement Summit. There will also be announcements about the monthly CIFF Selects film series, and about expanded opportunities in 2016 for filmmakers with works-in-progress.
Filmmakers may submit their completed documentaries (features and shorts) to CIFF or their works-in-progress to the Points North Fellowship starting in January 2016. Keep an eye on CIFF’s website and this newsletter for further information on upcoming programs and guidelines for submitting films in the coming months.
