Five doc filmmakers are being given a leg-up in their careers after five projects were chosen as part of the latest round of the doc apprenticeship program Giving Voice: Filmmakers Working With Filmmakers.

The partnership between CBC’s digital channel documentary and the Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) supports apprentices who work with acclaimed doc filmmakers for four months.

Audrey Quinn will work with director/producer Justine Pimlott of Red Queen Productions on Hot Rollers, a doc produced by Pimlott and written and directed by Maya Gallus (who are both behind The Mystery of Mazo de la Roche, pictured).

Noah Bingham will work as cross media project manager and outreach assistant with director/producer Liz Marshall (Water on the Table) and producer Nina Beveridge on cross-platform doc The Ghosts in our Machine.

And Julia Morgan will work with producer/director Ed Barreveld of Storyline Entertainment on various new projects.

Rounding out the latest Giving Voices field is Terryll Loffler assisting director/producer Daniel Cross (Homeless Nation) of EyeSteelFilm on new media and linear doc Turcot Interchange, while Tess Girard will work with director/cinematographer Mark Ellam on The Message and The Jungle Prescription.

The deadline for the next round of applications for the Giving Voice program is June 11, 2012.
