Cuban Hat Pitch

The Cuban Hat Pitch is back for a tenth year! Following a call for submissions, five teams of documentary filmmakers will present their projects in front of an animated audience in order to win various prizes. The public gets a chance to vote for their favorite project. With various prizes in cash and services, the Cuban Hat Pitch is a major Forum RIDM and Makila event, creating collective support for promising documentary projects.

Free - open to all.
