Loading Docs 2015 – Connect

The theme for 2015 is 'connection'. How the filmmakers interpret this theme is open to them, be it an exploration of death, human connection, a relationship with our environment, mental health, community, spirit or culture. The 10 teams are embarking on a mission to raise funds for their documentaries during the month of March. Check out the projects and support them here.
