The third edition of the DCM Talent Lab will bring together a select group of forty emerging and mid-career Canadian creators for three full days of specialized conferences and exploratory workshops with a roster of artists and experts from the RIDM and Doc Circuit Montréal programmes. A tailor-made mentorship program will also be awarded to 7 participants.
The Talent Lab sessions are moderated by a selection of filmmakers, experts, and mentors. This year’s Talent Lab programming has been inspired by the notion of the Obscene & the Overt - the ob-scene in the sense of off-stage (what one deliberately hides) and the overt, obviously, as what one chooses to show.
On Monday November 14th, the Talent Lab sessions will combine with DCM industry programs to encourage cross-pollination between emerging and established creators.
A 10 000$ development grant will be awarded to a Canadian francophone project by Canal D, and the Peter-Wintonick Travel Grant will be offered to an out-of-province participant courtesy of generous members of the Montreal documentary community.
