Documentary Edge Festival invites filmmakers to participate in its 2013 programme

The Documentary Edge Festival is the most important international film festival in Australasia, which is held annually in Auckland and Wellington.

This cutting edge festival lets an audience of thousands access a wide selection of documentaries portraying real issues of our society, giving voice to unheard communities and, at the same time, supporting the work of documentary independent filmmakers. The 2012 festival attracted over 10,000 attendees.

For the 2013 programme, the Festival is looking to include independent documentaries from different parts of the world. Submissions from Chile, Peru and Colombia would be welcomed. For details about deadline and requirements, visit
