The Points North Institute is accepting submissions for the inaugural Shortform Editing Residency, a new program supporting filmmakers and journalists working on documentary shorts or episodic series, through Wednesday, Aug. 10. The week-long residency will run Sept. 11 through 18, bringing four selected filmmakers to Maine to work on their edit with input from experienced mentors.

The program also includes an All Access Pass to the 2016 Camden International Film Festival, Sept. 15 through 18, giving filmmakers additional opportunities to connect with funders, distributors and the international documentary community during the festival weekend.

Submissions for the Shortform Editing Residency are open until 11:59 p.m. Aug. 10. A detailed program description and application form can be found at Selected projects and industry mentors will be announced in late August, following announcements of the Camden International Film Festival and Points North Forum programs.
