Third Coast International Audio Festival Announces New ShortDocs Challenge

Each year for more than a decade, the Third Coast International Audio Festival has asked established audio producers and newbies alike to create short audio documentaries around a specific theme. 

Last year, the curiosity of Studs Terkel was the prompt. This time around, Third Coast wants producers to use their microphones as cameras so to speak and to take inspiration from the mini-movies of Manual Cinema, a cinematic shadow puppet performance collective. 

We speak with Third Coast Executive Director and Founder Johanna Zorn about the annual contest known as the ShortDocs Challenge.
