LOADING DOCS is a trailblazing new initiative that will fund, create and distribute innovative New Zealand documentary shorts. Our mission is to give the best and brightest New Zealand filmmakers the chance to tell their stories with creativity, vision and passion and share them with the world. LOADING DOCS will support 10 talented Kiwi filmmakers to make 3-minute short documentaries that show our home, Aotearoa, as it’s never been seen before.

10 films will be launched on the Loading Docs website in May 2014, syndicated on high profile media sites such as the NZ Herald and made freely available to view and share online, both locally and internationally.

This initiative has a strong focus on connecting filmmakers with audiences and creating a vibrant community around LOADING DOCS, while exploring new models for film funding, production and distribution.

Loading Docs has been made with the support of The New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air’s Ignite Digital Media Fund and is managed by production company Notable Pictures.
