SUPPORT THE POINTS NORTH INSTITUTE
Our donors have helped us build one of the most respected platforms for documentary film in the world. Thank you!
Support at any level helps us continue to celebrate the art of nonfiction storytelling. Dedicated donors sustain the Points North Institute, making possible all of our programs, including the Camden International Film Festival. In addition to allowing us to program more than 100 documentary screenings every year, your gifts help us deliver our community programs across the region, support nearly 40 emerging artists with works-in-development each year, and curate the highest quality content for all of our screenings and immersive media exhibitions. Your generosity provides the platform for the most important stories of our time to find a voice and an audience.
As the Points North Institute grows, support from our Founding Members giving circle has built a solid foundation for us to invest more in year-round artist development and community programs. When we made the leap from being a weekend film festival to becoming a year-round institute in 2016, 20 generous donors invested in our programmatic expansion, putting us on a sustainable, long-term pathway as the launching pad for the next generation of nonfiction storytellers. Now we have the opportunity to go beyond exhibition and to support the creation of artful nonfiction stories that have the power to impact audiences far beyond Maine.
I hope Maine realizes that this is a jewel in the crown of this great state and we should support it with everything we’ve got and make sure it keeps its soul.
One of the documentary filmmaking world’s most prestigious festivals.
What we found in Camden was a community of filmmakers and film enthusiasts who helped foster creativity, conversation and collaboration, all set against the backdrop of an incredible town.
