CIFF 2016: Call for Submissions!
Early Deadline: March 4th, 2016
Regular deadline: April 22nd
CIFF has recently been selected by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences as a
qualifying festival for the Documentary Short Subject Award.
The festival joins the list of nearly 40 international festivals recognized by the prestigious institution. In doing so, the documentary short film that receives the Camden Cartel Award for Best Short will now be eligible to enter the Documentary Short Subject competition for the Academy.
CIFF also recently received renewed support from the National Endowment for the Arts for the 2016 Camden International Film Festival and Points North Documentary Forum. Supported programs will provide audiences intimate access to filmmakers and an opportunity to experience the world’s best documentary cinema, while building an extended community and a supportive environment for emerging filmmakers to focus on creative and professional development.
