One-on-One Pitches

Activities and Events

The One-on-One Pitches is a 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. The meetings last 15-minutes each and are booked in advance by registered producers and filmmakers. In 2017, we welcomed over 90 Decision Makers.

Since 2015, the One-on-Ones include the 1:1 Meetings, a section dedicated to consultations with professionals who do not fall under the traditional decision maker title. These meetings are valuable face time with experts from a variety of backgrounds, including interactive and VR (programmers, designers, producers), music (composers, publishers), strategy consultants (festival, distribution, financing, legal/rights). A time-slot dedicated to coproduction will also allow delegates to meet with international producers.

You must have a valid DCM accreditation.

Presented with the support of Ministère de la Culture et des Communications and SODEXPORT. Coffee offered by the FRIC.
