Producers’ Lab

Producers Lab

After a resounding success last year, Doc Circuit Montreal 2018 is pleased to present the second annual Producers’ Lab. This year, the Lab will focus on professional development and the sustainability of the documentary producer’s profession in an industry with ever-shifting standards.

Throughout the DCM program, panel discussions, talks and workshops will examine production issues and new opportunities. Clinics focusing on contracts and tax credits will highlight the tools required for production in Canada. The Lab will cover the different documentary formats, including series, podcasts, webdocs and virtual reality. It will also explore new funding sources through online distribution, the blockchain phenomenon and co-production. And, for the first time, the Lab will host international co-production and professional development workshops to encourage Quebecers to reach out to the world. The event, held throughout DCM, is an essential platform for sharing ideas and working together to develop new possibilities for the profession.

Presented with the financial support of the Bell Fund
