Doc Challenge

Now in it's 5th year, the Emmy-nominated International Documentary Challenge returns to the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto. This year's challenge takes place March 4-8, 2010 with the Hot Docs premiere of the Finalists in early May.

The DocChallenge is a fun and innovative competition that will push your documentary skills to the limit. If you're new to the idea, it's very simple: Filmmakers from around the world are given a genre (Character Study, Music, 1st Person, etc.) and a theme (such as "Change".) Participants then have 5 days to develop, produce and edit a 4 to 7 minute non-fiction film. The result is an exhilarating five days for the filmmakers, and, as the films reveal, a joy for the audiences at Hot Docs and beyond.

Registration is now open. Entry forms can be found at:

The 2010 Presenting Partners include Hot Docs, American Documentary/P.O.V., Documentary Educational Resources and Typecast Releasing. Supporting partners include the International Documentary Association, the Documentary Organization of Canada, DocuMentors, the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Dokufest, Docs In Progress and the 48 Hour Film Project.
