For the tenth year in a row, Forum RIDM is proud to reaffirm its support towards emerging documentary filmmakers by helping them refine their skills in the art of the pitch and present their projects to established producers.

First Pitch is a catalyst for new collaborations and a way to keep the documentary industry vital. On September 23, nine emerging documentarists from Quebec attended a full-day pitch-training session with producer Mila Aung-Thwin. The following week, on September 29 and 30, the same nine participants had the opportunity to connect with nine established producers from Quebec during two half-day online sessions devoted to pitching their documentary projects. The activity included both a public presentation and private consultations.

Presented in collaboration with l'Association des réalisateurs et réalisatrices du Québec (ARRQ) With the financial support of Telefilm Canada
