Docs North | Docs Nord is a workshop program organized by Flash Frame Film and Video Network in collaboration with the Bay Street Film Festival. This year’s 4 day intensive workshop is being held from June 27-30, 2016.

group_shotIn the past the Docs North Docs Nord workshops coincided with the Bay Street Film Festival in order to benefit from visiting filmmakers who shared their expertise with local and regional media producers. The 2014 and 2015 BSFF instead opted to offer 5 master classes led by visiting filmmakers instead of the hands on intensive workshops with the intention of partnering with Flash Frame to present Docs North Docs Nord 4 at a separate occasion.

In 2016, we have invited 2 visiting mentors to Thunder Bay as workshop leaders for Docs North Docs Nord 4.

During the four-day program, emerging and independent film, television and digital media producers from Northern Ontario learn about the art, craft and fundamentals of filmmaking from leading experts.

Docs North | Docs North is partnered with the Bay Street Film Festival, Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic (ReSDA). We’re funded by the Ontario Arts Council and ReSDA with support from many partners including the Nunavut Film Development Corporation and Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission (CEDC).

Flash Frame Film and Video Network is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of film, multimedia, electronic technologies and video production in Northwestern Ontario through film screenings and skill development. Founded in January 2001, Flash Frame membership is open to anyone interested in film including professionals, students and community members.
