One-on-One Pitches

The One-on-One Pitches is full day of meetings between documentary producers, filmmakers, and decision-makers – broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, festival programmers, institutions, and funds representatives. It is a unique opportunity for creators and decision-makers alike to forge new partnerships and bring new projects to life. In 2019, more than 90 decision-makers and experts from all around the world as well as Canada will be present for the One-on-One Pitches.

The meetings last 15-minutes each are booked in advance.

A time-slot is also dedicated to co-production allowing local producers to meet with international producers.

NEW FEATURES FOR THE ONE-ON-ONE PITCHES 2019

Forum RIDM is pleased to announce some new important features for its high-profile event, the One-on-One Pitches. First, the registration period for 2019 will be abbreviated, opening September 16 and closing October 27. Documentary professionals are asked to take note and register early.

The shorter registration period is part of an effort to make the registration process smoother and more efficient. With this change, more than 80% of decision makers will be confirmed when pass sales begin, and participants will be able to request specific meetings right away. The shortened registration period will also give participants earlier access to the schedule on November 5 – two weeks before the event, to facilitate preparation for pitches and meetings.
