Camden International Film Festival
Camden, Rockport and Rockland, Maine / September 12-15, 2019 / pointsnorthinstitute.org
What Camden lacks in size it makes up for in location (a coastal town in crisp fall), compelling documentary programming, filmmaker networking and community support. The festival prides itself on its diverse lineup of challenging and inspiring documentaries. In addition, Camden features an industry conference that includes masterclasses with renowned filmmakers, panel discussions with industry leaders, workshops and the Points North Forum, one of the largest documentary pitches in North America. Camden is a great place if you are looking for distribution or funding. The 2018 festival included 24 industry representatives, including several distributors: Netflix, PBS’ POV, ITVS, Field of Vision, First Look Media and Pulse Films. Also in attendance were funders and financiers such as the Ford Foundation, Sundance Institute and the Tribeca Film Institute.
