DOC at GIFF: One on One Meetings with DOC team!

DOC will be present at Gimli International Film Festival!

Growing from our wonderful meetings with local filmmakers at the Available Light Film Festival this past winter, attending Gimli to connect with Manitoba doc-makers is part of DOC’s Strategic Goal to connect with and work to strengthen our local Chapters.

DOC’s National team will be at Johnson Hall between 10:00am – 12:00pm, Friday July 28. Drop by with questions, comments or simply to say hello! Laura Dueñas can answer any of your questions about how to join DOC and all our member benefits, and Esmé Tierney can let you know how DOC’s Festival Concierge and Business Concierge programs work and how to access these national programs. DOC’s Executive Director, Sarah Spring and Operations Manager, Tazeen Ahmed would love to hear your ideas on what DOC can do for you, and how to advocate for Manitoba’s filmmakers!
