Open Call for Documentarians Seeking Partnerships with NGOs
Planet in Focus is partnering with DOC National to present JOINING FORCES: NON-PROFITS AND FILMMAKERS.
This workshop on Thursday, October 11 will bring together documentarians with NGOs who produce film projects promoting environmentalism. We are inviting documentarians to present their eco film projects either in development or production to a panel of NGOs. NGOs we invite to this panel have produced eco-themed videos or films, or intend to with documentarians. PIF and DOC will select two filmmakers to present.
This session will also present two existing case studies involving documentarians and NGOs:

2) One-page biography of you and your key collaborators (including producer, director).
