Now in its 7th year, The Doc Challenge returns to the the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto. This year's challenge takes place March 1-5, 2011. Registration is now open.

The Doc Challenge is a timed filmmaking competition where filmmakers from around the world will make a short non-fiction film (4-7 minutes) from start to finish in just 5 days.

Filmmakers are assigned a theme (past themes include Dreams/Nightmares, Change) and must choose between 2 assigned documentary genres (such as Character Study, Music, 1st Person, etc.) These two requirements provide a challenge to filmmakers, as it will shape the content and direction their film takes.

The top 12 films will make their world premiere at Hot Docs where winners will be announced. Three major awards (with cash prizes) will be presented: The American Documentary/P.O.V. Award, The Documentary Educational Resources (DER) Award and the Best Film Award (presented by the Documentary Channel.) Additionally, online viewing and voting will determine an Audience Award winner. After the
premiere, there are additional theatrical screenings in major cities, national television exposure (10 films from 2011 were selected for national broadcast on the Documentary Channel) and a DVD release of the best films.
