URBANIA Mobile Pitch

URBANIA Mobile Pitch
Doc Circuit Montréal launches for the first time the URBANIA Mobile Pitch! 

 

Quebec based directors are invited to propose short documentary projects for release on a mobile platform developed by URBANIA. The selected participants will compete for the URBANIA award, including $3000 in cash, $1500 worth of equipment rentals courtesy of SLA Location and $1500 in post-production services provided by Studio Plasma, for a total of $6000.

 

The URBANIA Mobile Pitch will be held during Doc Circuit Montréal (Nov. 11-15). The participants will present their projects in front of a jury composed with a wide variety of experts.  

 

The submitted work must highlight a surprising and engaging subject, while using the technique and medium for the narrative’s benefit. The subject, duration, style, tone, format and other aspects must therefore be considered in terms of the viewing platform. The project will have a maximum running time of 5 minutes, and it should provoke thought about the format and its implications for the user. There are various possible forms of expression, opening up the possibility of proposed projects with high levels of creative potential: vertical and/or horizontal videos, sounds, text, statistics, animated images, illustrations or audio. 

 

2017 Projects:

Daria Marchenko | Baromètre

Lawrence Côté-Collins | VHS mon amour

Martin Bureau | De la vaisselle sur l'asphalte.

 

Eligibility:

  • Open to Quebec based directors.
  • Present a multimedia project of 5 minutes or less.
  • Submit a complete dossier.

 

This pitch invites the collaboration of diverse fields to decomparmentalize the artistic genres.
