Points North 1:1 Meetings2020-09-09T08:56:50-04:00


During CIFF, projects shortlisted for the Points North Fellowship and filmmakers selected for our other Artist Programs are offered a series of 20-minute meetings with a selection of our top industry guests.

Funders, broadcasters, producers, and other decision makers select their project meetings in advance. Over the past two years, we have welcomed industry delegates from the Ford Foundation | Just Films, ITVS, Tribeca Film Institute, Netflix, PBS, San Francisco Film Society, HotDocs, Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, and Discovery, to name but a few.


This program is invitation only.

For your project to be considered, please submit to the Artist Program that is the best fit for your film.

At the Points North Institute, we have long been champions of documentary shorts. They allow filmmakers to experiment with the documentary form, release timely films more quickly, and engage wider audiences through digital platforms. Perhaps most importantly, the growing number of outlets for documentary shorts can help expand and diversify the field by lowering barriers to entry like the cost of production and distribution.

The Shortform Editing Residency, now entering its 4th year, builds on our longstanding commitment to short documentary filmmaking through our highly-curated and wildly popular shorts programs at Camden International Film Festival — Shorts First, Shorts X, and Dirigo Docs — as well as prior artist development programs like the New York Times Op-Docs Pitch @ CIFF (2013) and the AJ+ Pitch @ CIFF (2014).
