The Southern Documentary Fund is proud to announce a call for submissions for the In-the-Works program at the 2014 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. The festival runs April 3-6, with In-the-Works tentatively scheduled for Sunday, April 6th.
The In-the-Works program offers Full Frame audiences the unique opportunity to view documentaries in the final stages of editing, and participate in the critique process. Attendees are encouraged to give constructive feedback about the films’ content, characters, and structure in a post-screening discussion facilitated by a moderator.
Submissions must comply with the following guidelines:
Must be made in or about the American South
Must be in the final stages of completion
Must be a documentary
Filmmakers must be present at the screening
What do we mean by “In-the-Works?” We are not looking for trailers, sample reels, selects compilations, or first cuts. Your submission doesn’t need to be mixed and color corrected but should feel like a film with a story. There are no length requirements but we tend to screen features.
We’ll select 1-2 projects to showcase, and may screen only a portion of the works. For consideration, please submit your project to the Southern Documentary Fund no later than February 17, 2014 (received by).
How to Submit:
Upload your cut to Vimeo or YouTube and send your link/password to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email please include your contact information, a short description of the work, and filmmaker(s) bios. If your film is selected we will ask for additional information including publicity photos, one paragraph description, credits, etc.
