Day in Our Bay is a community-based digital storytelling project that gives voice to Bristol Bay Native Corporation shareholders in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska through a video contest, culminating in a collaborative documentary film opening the Anchorage International Film Festival in December 2011. Through Oct 7, BBNC shareholders requested a free digital video camera to film scenes from their lives (film date was October 15) in the Bristol Bay region. They entered their film footage - edited or unedited - to be considered for inclusion in an upcoming short documentary film.
