Camden, Maine (Pop. 5,254)
September 27-30, 2012

Cozied up against the mighty Atlantic just as autumn colors explode, the unique New England setting of the Camden International Film Festival is a big part of the festival experience. Films are selected based on their ability to incite discussion about the art form of documentary as a catalyst for societal change, and almost all of the film screenings are followed by Q&A sessions with filmmakers. According to festival participant-director Aaron Schock, “Camden is exactly what you want in a film festival: intimacy, engaged audiences, crisp and original programming, generous hosts, and a great setting.”

When to submit: By mid-July
