New Venture to Grow Little Docs Online

A new initiative has launched, with support from the New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air, to get more NZ short documentaries created, and distributed online.

Loading Docs will use crowdfunding and online distribution to grow the audience for documentaries and raise the profile of our filmmakers on the international stage. The new website currently profiles three micro doc examples that aim to inspire would-be contributors. Check out our pick: Reindeer Wrangling here

Loading Docs are seeking proposals from filmmakers now. Submissions are due by 25 November. Ten stories will be selected and supported through to launch on the Loading Docs platform in May 2014. Read about the process here.  For more information visit www.loadingdocs.net.
