Loading Docs is a unique initiative that produces short (3-minute) documentaries that captivate and inspire audiences locally and internationally, while developing and promoting New Zealand filmmaking talent.
Through a competitive selection process, Loading Docs selects ten short documentary proposals, which are then supported from development through to distribution. Working with local and international mentors, Loading Docs filmmakers expand their skills in a range of areas including story development, outreach, publicity and marketing and distribution.
