Located in the bucolic outback of Twisp, Washington, deep in the heart of the Cascade Mountains, the Wild Mind Film Camp, an 11-day, in-depth, immersive filmmaking workshop in association with Northwest Film Forum, is taught by some of the most accomplished nonfiction storytellers in the business.
Wild Mind Film Camp's instructors have created films that have led to 14 Sundance premieres, 4 Emmy's® and an Oscar. The faculty includes directors Doug Pray (Hype!, Surfwise, Art & Copy) and Peter Vogt (Icons Among Us: Jazz in the Present Tense), cinematographer Shana Hagan (Shakespeare Behind Bars) and screenwriter / story expert John Jacobsen (host of PBS' The Artist Toolbox).
The intensive retreat is designed to provide nonfiction filmmakers a personal focus and a sharp set of hands-on skills for making meaningful, entertaining and impactful docs. Classes, workshops and screenings are held at TwispWorks, and filmmakers are lodged at a beautiful nearby bed-and-breakfast with full amenities and great food.
Due to the intimate nature of the program, the camp is limited to only 12 students, with selection based on the strength of their previous work and intentions within the art form.
Wild Mind Film Camp runs this summer from July 16 - 27, 2014. The application deadline is March 15, 2014.
Interested filmmakers can apply by visiting the Wild Mind Film Camp website.

The Bertha BRITDOC Connect Fund, a joint initiative between Bertha Foundation and BRITDOC, is the first European-based outreach and engagement fund, and is open to filmmakers from around the world.
The fund is looking to support smart, strategic outreach campaigns for ambitious independent documentary films with a social issue at their core; films which have the ability to achieve real change on a local, regional or global level.
Social impact can be achieved in a myriad of ways and we are looking for outreach plans that engage audiences, have identifiable goals and partners to help achieve them.
Grants will be in the range of £5,000 - £50,000.
Applications can come at the planning, trial, delivery or evaluation stage of a campaign. Films can apply more than once, for different parts or phases of a campaign.
Submission deadline: March 24
