The National Film Board and TVO have expanded their NFB-TVO Calling Card Program. The program provides an opportunity for emerging filmmakers and new-media teams from Ontario to work with the NFB and TVO to create documentaries for new-media platforms or television broadcast. For the first time the Calling Card Program features an interactive new-media category as well as a television broadcast category. The winning team in each category (new-media and television broadcast) will be awarded $45,000 and receive mentorship from members of the film and new-media community to take their docs from concept to television premiere or online launch. The winning 30-minute TV documentary will have its premiere broadcast on TVO's documentary series The View From Here. The winning online interactive documentary will be launched and hosted at both NFB.ca and tvo.org. The deadline for entries is August 31, 2009.
