The DOC Hour: Alternative Distribution

Within an environment explored in many aspects and the VOD revolution, filmmakers must find new audiences and new ways to distribute their works, especially if they’re perceived as aesthetically and structurally out of the ordinary. What are the alternatives for distributing a documentary? What are the new platforms to stream movies? From the theater to the performance hall, via online libraries or museums, what are the avenues to follow for projects outside the traditional distribution circuits requiring a more strategic approach?

The DOC Hour: Alternative Distribution is presented by DOC Québec.
