Institute/ Organization Profile
The Points North Institute is a launching pad for the next generation of nonfiction storytellers. We build a unique, interdisciplinary community of filmmakers, artists, journalists, industry leaders, and local audiences, forming a creative hub where stories and talent are discovered, collaborations are born, and the future of nonfiction media is shaped. Our programs include the annual Camden International Film Festival and Points North Forum, as well as a growing suite of artist development initiatives: retreats, residencies, workshops, and fellowships that nurture the careers of diverse nonfiction storytellers and help them develop a stronger artistic voice. These fellowships include the Points North Fellowship & Pitch; the North Star Fellowship; the LEF/CIFF Fellowship, the American Stories Documentary Fund; and other funds and fellowships in development to be announced later this year.
