Loading Docs

Loading Docs is a unique New Zealand documentary initiative that aims to captivate and inspire audiences as well as develop and promote New Zealand filmmaking talent. Since launching in 2014 Loading Docs has touched audiences all over the world. Our films have been seen online, on TV, in film festivals... even on airplanes! We're back again this year with ten new documentary shorts inspired by the theme, 'diversity'. It’s a theme that touches many aspects of life, from community, politics, identity, science, health and the environment and can be cause for celebration, support innovation and enhance creativity. Diversity can also be challenging, complex and confronting. This year we are pleased to announce that we will be including one Loading Doc short fully in te reo Māori. Each filmmaking team has the challenge of raising $2,000 on Boosted to help make their film. When that funding target is reached, Loading Docs will add an additional $4,000, plus a post-production package at Toybox and Post Production Sound. This campaign is not just about $$. We have a much bigger mission, which is to let every New Zealander know how great our documentaries and our filmmakers are, and to share these incredible kiwi stories. We're appealing to the Boosted community to get involved with Loading Docs, follow our production journey and help us get these small but mighty films to the world. Find out more about Loading Docs (and watch our past shorts): Loading Docs is a Notable Pictures initiative, produced by Julia Parnell and Anna Jackson with the support of principle partner NZ On Air's Digital Media Fund, the New Zealand Film Commission and Te Māngai Pāho.
