Pitch Mobile URBANIA

Activities and Events

Doc Circuit Montreal is proud to present the inaugural URBANIA Mobile Pitch. During this session, Quebec-based directors will pitch short-form multimedia documentary projects. The new initiative, presented in partnership with URBANIA, invites inter-disciplinary collaboration, the removal of barriers between genres, and a thorough rethinking of the conventional documentary form.

With the help of a panel of experts, the public will be invited to participate in and benefit from this
reflection on the evolution of the documentary. Combinations of different disciplines are welcome (photographers and audio producers, illustrators and writers, animation designers and journalists, etc.). The documentary project selected will be distributed through the mobile platform developed by URBANIA.
