Rachel Garrick, from Hudson, and Nadine Arpin, from Sioux Lookout, are among the three pairs chosen for the third year of the NSI Aboriginal Documentary, a training course for producer/director teams looking to produce a short documentary.


Training bootcamp is two weeks in Winnipeg during which time students will attend sessions with more than 20 different industry professionals, including Alanis Obomsawin. Students
will work on their projects for 10 months following the intensive bootcamp and will deliver a finished 10-minute documentary in about a year’s time. 


Completed short documentaries from the course will air nationally on APTN as a one-hour special and stream on aptn.ca followed by streaming on nfb.ca.
