CBC’s digital channel and the Documentary Organization of Canada reunite to foster tomorrow’s great doc filmmakers

CBC’s digital channel documentary and the Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) have announced a consecutive run of the documentary mentorship program – GIVING VOICE: FILMMAKERS WORKING WITH FILMMAKERS. Building on the success of the 2011 inaugural edition, the 2012 program, funded by documentary, will support up to eight apprentices who will work under the mentorship of accomplished documentary filmmakers for a period of four months. The application deadline for this year’s program is February 29, 2012. 

GIVING VOICE: FILMMAKERS WORKING WITH FILMMAKERS is designed to help professional documentary filmmakers move to the next level in their careers. The program offers each apprentice the unique opportunity to gain “in-the-field” training with a seasoned documentarian. Working under the guidance of established professionals, the selected apprentices will receive the unique opportunity to gain insight into their mentors’ winning approaches and techniques while observing the creative process first-hand. Through practical experience and feedback, apprentices will learn to further develop their own skill set for their future projects and careers. Dedicated to fostering the art of independent documentary filmmaking in Canada as one of its key mandates, DOC is keen to provide a platform of support to the documentary filmmaking community through this initiative.

“GIVING VOICE is a great program because it offers a rare opportunity to shadow an experienced professional and observe the creative process at work,” explained DOC’s chair, Katie McKenna. “It’s also unique in targeting professionals who are already working in the field, and ready to take next steps to advance their careers.”

“Our continued support of GIVING VOICE reflects our confidence in the program and our commitment to Canadian documentary filmmakers,” said Bruce Cowley, creative head, CBC digital channels.

GIVING VOICE is designed to be an exchange whereby both parties will benefit from the experience. The mentors will benefit by working with passionate and creative professionals, while the apprentices will have access to the breadth of experience and wisdom of artists who have already earned critical acclaim and established their documentary voice.

Launched in 2011, last year’s inaugural GIVING VOICE program matched seven dynamic candidates with skilled documentary filmmakers and producers, enabling them to gain valuable experience within documentary production. The apprenticeship program is once again casting its net across the country for applicants. The national program is designed to reach all demographics and regions of the country, including filmmakers from under-represented communities. The selection committee will choose up to eight individuals to participate in this year’s program. The deadline for all submissions is February 29, 2012.
