Event Details

THE NHDOCS STUDENT QUARANTINE FILM CHALLENGE

One of the major impacts of Covid-19 on the New Haven Documentary Film Festival has been on our student competition. Students usually are completing their films during the Spring semester, now they find themselves at home, without access to the resources in their schools. At the New Haven Documentary Film Festival, we are passionate about equipping the next generation of filmmakers with the tools and the community to tell their stories. We created a way to continue helping students work on projects before the Student Competition.

The Challenge: We are calling on all Connecticut Middle School, High School, and College students to make a short documentary (5 minutes or less) with the resources you have in your home. The theme can be anything, but we challenge you to convey your feelings about the CoronaVirus and/or being quarantined in the film.

The Perks: Participants in the NHdocs Quarantine Student Film Challenge can sign up for three 15-minute video-chat mentor sessions with professional filmmakers during the process of making their films. The goal of these mentorship sessions is to equip students with creative ideas for telling their stories within the confines of their current limited resources.
