A note from Mridu Chandra, ''02:
I'm working with the Tribeca Film Institute to develop the IF/THEN Short Docs Program - a new fund supported by the MacArthur Foundation that seeks to discover & empower more inclusive voices in short film storytelling and a multi-platform distribution initiative that offers filmmakers creative control, revenue potential & career development.
We will be launching the initiative more formally this spring but more immediately, we are hosting a Short Pitch Competition at Big Sky Documentary Film Festival on February 23rd.
You're on this email list because I thought you would know filmmakers who are working on compelling short form documentaries and could forward this to them. Eligibility Info and application instructions follow below.
For this pitch we're considering filmmakers living or working in the American West, or telling stories of the American West: Montana, Wyoming,Colorado, New Mexico, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska, and Hawaii.
The deadline is January 27th, 2017. And the application is short.
Please forward to anyone you would recommend for this pitch and let them know about it!
Director, IF/THEN Short Docs
