2016 Annual Appeal
It has been a momentous year! The launch of the Points North Institute has opened the door for our organization to make an even greater impact, advancing the work of diverse nonfiction storytellers by helping develop their careers and artistic voices. It also means that we can invest more in the Camden International Film Festival, contributing to the economic and cultural vibrancy of Maine communities through creative engagements with great nonfiction storytelling.
As this pivotal year now comes to a close, we are aiming to raise $15,000 by December 31st. These funds will help build a strong, sustainable foundation for the Points North Institute’s growing calendar of year-round programs, which now include the annual film festival and forum, a filmmaker retreat, a residency, a year-round fellowship, pitch sessions, educational workshops, university partnerships, community screenings, and Storyforms — our new exhibition of virtual reality and immersive media.
Now more than ever, it is crucial to support independent storytellers and artists whose work inspires us to come together, see the world from a different point of view and open up space for dialogue.
We hope you will consider making a year-end contribution to the Points North Institute, and help us establish the launching pad for the next generation of nonfiction storytellers.
