All this week, we're spotlighting four films that will be in the running for our Camden International Film Festival Project of the Week contest. At the end of the week, we'll have a vote for the project that you like the most. That project will get to pitch their project at the CIFF Points North Pitch, where a world-class panel will give feedback on their projects and award one pitch project $1,000. The Indiewire/CIFF Project of the Week winner will receive free lodging in Maine and a travel stipend!
In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.
"What Tomorrow Brings"
In the remote village of Deh Subz,
Afghanistan, the first girl's school opens - challenging centuries of
conservative social tradition. The story of the Zabuli School unfolds at
a time when the entire region faces an uncertain fate. As President
Obama announces a 2014 deadline for U.S. withdrawal, a rising fear
gathers over a resurgence of oppressive Taliban force. Against this
harrowing backdrop, the feature-length documentary WHAT TOMORROW
BRINGS traces the interconnected stories of students, teachers, village
elders, families, and tenacious school founder Razia Jan, building a
layered portrait of a community caught between its past and its future.
