DocFest works to develop the art of documentary filmmaking at a local level, providing artists in the immediate and surrounding area with an opportunity to screen their films to a wide audience, interact with filmgoers, network with other filmmakers and develop their skills through a series of workshops.
DocFest supports independent filmmakers from any geographic region; anyone can submit a film to the festival for consideration. We understand that documentary film festival screening opportunities are few and the submission numbers place importance on DocFest being a potential development opportunity for independent artists.
DocFest will be organizing a free, multi-part filmmaker workshop series in an effort to further develop the great film talent local to this Region and across the province.
Local filmmaker programming information, film descriptions and artist bios will follow early in the New Year.
