It's already time to start thinking about the fall film festivals and your hit list of "must attends," ESPECIALLY for New England filmmakers, should include the Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) taking place Sept. 30th through Oct. 3rd! 

LEF is pleased to continue our support of the Points North Forum, a unique opportunity for the New England nonfiction production community to connect with industry execs through several panels, structured networking sessions, receptions and informal gatherings. 

LEF helped launch the inaugural Points North last year, and I attended as a panelist. It was a fantastic event with a packed house of filmmakers eager to hear from each other and industry insiders. Having representatives from the Tribeca Film Institute, HBO, PBS, Sundance Doc Fund (and more) at the venue at the Maine Media Workshops made this a truly unique event for the local crowd. 

CIFF is adding a new element to the forum this year - the first Points North Pitch. The Pitch is an opportunity for 6 New England filmmakers to pitch current projects in development to an international delegation of industry leaders who will provide critical feedback and advice. This is a rare opportunity - so get those proposals in! Filmmakers with projects in development are invited to submit proposals by Wednesday, Aug. 25;  For more information on how to submit a pitch, visit camdenfilmfest.org/pointsnorth.

Sadly, I won't be there for the forum this year, as I'll be attending to a wee infant. But do expect to see folks from LEF at CIFF and the forum!
