Animator Angela Steffen discusses the creation of her art and the short movie "Lebensader."
The International Documentary Challenge is a timed filmmaking competition where filmmakers have 5 days to make a short non-fiction film. All of the registered participants make their films during the same time period (early March) and are required to ship the movie by the deadline. In addition to being restricted on time, the filmmakers must choose between 2 assigned documentary genres (such as Biography, Music, 1st Person, etc.) and are assigned a specific theme (such as "Change") that will dictate the content and direction of their film. The top 12 films (determined by a panel of judges) premiere at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival in Toronto where the Winners are announced. The Doc Challenge is produced by Doug Whyte and Kat Touschner of KDHX Community Media.
