2017 ANNUAL FUND
Thanks to your support, the Camden International Film Festival has grown into one of the world’s most respected showcases of documentary films created by the best and brightest artists from around the world. Along the way, our organization has become much more than a four-day film festival.
Last June we launched the Points North Institute, and today our artist programs are helping a growing number of filmmakers advance their careers, strengthen their artistic voices and connect their work with audiences. We are also investing in expanded year-round community programs that use powerful documentary films to advance public dialogue and strengthen movements for social change across Maine and beyond.
Today our mission is clear. We need nonfiction storytellers more than ever. Artfully told stories have the power to inspire us, challenge us and broaden our understanding of the world with new and diverse points of view.
With your support, the Points North Institute will continue to play a vital role in sustaining the creative renaissance in documentary, establishing a platform that elevates the voices of artists, opens up space for dialogue and investigates the future of creative nonfiction. We will reinforce what makes our organization so unique: a belief in building community locally around storytellers that will make an impact globally.
With your support, we will build the launching pad for the next generation of nonfiction storytellers. Our work has only just begun.
