Gimme Some Truth: Gimme 10 in 30! Documentary Filmmaking Challenge

Thu, Dec 2 / 7 pm
Q&A with filmmakers to follow screening.

Join us for the world premiere of 9 new short documentaries created during the pandemic by local filmmakers. Gimme 10 in 30! is a new documentary incubator challenge wherein 9 participants chosen via random lottery draw were tasked with completing a new documentary film in 30 days. There were no restrictions or parameters to the films created, except they couldn’t be longer than 7 minutes long. Originally conceptualized as this time-based documentary filmmaking challenge, the COVID-19 pandemic had other designs and forced us to extend the challenge, allowing the filmmakers to create their films safely and in line with provincial health restrictions. The resulting 9 films are presented here for your enjoyment and demonstrate the creative spirit and originality coming out of our local documentary scene.

Each film is eligible for a $500 cash prize for the Audience Choice Award, which will be voted on live by the audience after the screening and is graciously furnished by DOC MB.
