Loading Docs is seeking applications from storytellers that are brave, provocative and harness the power of emotion. The deadline is midday, Friday 11 February 2022.
Eight teams will be selected to make documentaries with durations of up to ten minutes and receive high level mentorship from internationally acclaimed documentary creators throughout the course of 2022.
The Loading Docs theme for 2022 is the Power of Emotion. Loading Docs Season 9 short documentaries will harness the power of emotion to tell urgent enthralling stories. Each film should offer viewers a gripping narrative that in some way explores this overarching theme.
The theme could be explored through your subject matter or character, or could also be the feeling you want your audience to walk away with at the end of your film. How can you creatively explore the power of emotion through your story? How will emotional tension drive the action in your film?
Give yourself the opportunity to join the next cohort of Loading Docs filmmakers and be part of an acclaimed short documentary initiative that has received more than 17 million views worldwide to date.
