Int’l Documentary Assn. looks for achievement award entries

Submissions also considered for DOCtober fest

The Intl. Documentary Assn. has put out a call for entries for its 16th annual Distinguished Documentary Achievement Awards, to take place in Los Angeles on Oct. 27.

Submissions of film or video docus with completion, release, or telecast dates between Jan. 1, 1999, and April 15, 2000, will be accepted through May 15. Winning productions will be screened at IDA’s annual DocuFest on Oct. 28.

As in previous years, competition is divided into five categories including features, shorts, limited series, strand programs (single titles in ongoing series) and television magazine segments.

In addition to competing for the distinguished docu laurels, nominees will vie for IDA special recognition prizes — the ABCNEWS Video Source Award for best use of news footage and the Pare Lorentz Award for a doc that demonstrates an activist sensibility.

This year, entries will also be considered for inclusion in IDA’s 4th annual DOCtober fest, provided that they are in film format and have release or telecast dates no sooner than six months following the end of the festival.

The Awards are sponsored by Eastman Kodak.

Entry forms may be downloaded from http://www.documentary.org. For more information, call 310/284-8422 (ext. 26) or e-mail to http://www.idaawards @documentary.org.
