Aspiring documentary filmmakers, this one’s for you! TVO is launching a Doc Studio Contest, encouraging Ontarians to create a five-minute interview-based documentary, inspired by the work of filmmaker-in-residence Alan Zweig.

The doc should capture a moment of change, articulate a shift in perception, or reveal a secret, all in five minutes. The winning filmmaker will have their piece aired on TVO in the spring, score an industry pass to Hot Docs and receive a mentoring session with Zweig. This is a seriously cool opportunity-and could be the jump start you’re looking for to take your career to the next level.

Want to enter? You can submit your video via Youtube or mail, with a completed entry form, a brief description of your piece, and a short biography as well as all your contact info including your age. The deadline to enter is Feb 27th, 2012. Check out their site for all the info and a message from Zweig. What are you waiting for???
