Labrador Doc Project Seeking Applications for Short Documentaries- Deadline today

The National Film Board of Canada’s Quebec and Atlantic Studio and LJH Films are reaching out to emerging and established Nunatsiavummiut filmmakers from or in Labrador who have an interest in documentary storytelling, with a call for submissions for the Labrador Doc Project.

Three participants will be chosen to direct their own short films in Nunatsiavut, plus there are opportunities for applicants in a wide range of filmmaking positions.

The Labrador Doc Project is looking for stories that surprise-and deepen Inuit’s understanding of them.

The Project’s goal is to collaborate with established and emerging Nunatsiavummiut artists, ages 18 and up.

The Labrador Doc Project will support projects that are 10-15 minutes in length, located in Nunatsiavut, and realized over five shooting days.

Project directors are invited to e-mail a short proposal to Stephen Agluvak Puskas at, stating the story ideas, your personal connection to them, and why you want to tell these stories, no later than today, April 13, 2018.

Those seeking more information can email Puskas at, or call him at (514)-348-3708.

NFB producers will choose three stories, and notify the successful applicants by May 4, 2018.
