Write, shoot and edit a short non-fiction film in just 5 days. You must use an all-volunteer crew, none of whom will be getting much sleep in order to submit the film before the judges’ deadline.
Started in 2006, The International Documentary Challenge is a timed competition in which filmmakers are given just five days to create and complete a short non-fiction film. The participants all work during the same time period and are required to ship their finished films by a strict deadline. The filmmakers must choose between two documentary genres and are assigned a specific theme each year that helps dictate the content and direction of their film.
This DVD collection features a variety of short non-fiction works from around the globe – from China to New York City; from Seattle to Amsterdam; from Montana to Japan – representing the very best from filmmakers who participated in the first three years of theInternational Documentary Challenge. If you’re interested in participating in the next International Documentary Challenge, you can find details at www.docchallenge.org.
