Talent Lab

| In French and in English |

The seventh annual Forum RIDM Talent Lab, presented by NETFLIX, brings together a group of 15 emerging and mid-career creators for a series of specialized talks and exploratory workshops with experts attending the RIDM and the Forum.

Guided by industry professionals, participants will be encouraged to reflect on their projects and artistic practices and will prepare themselves to take advantage of the Forum’s networking opportunities. A variety of industry figures will suggest creative and professional avenues to advance the participants careers.

Four half-days are reserved for closed-circuit workshops and presentations. The participants will then attend online Forum RIDM workshops and talks.

For the sixth year in a row, CANAL D will present a $10,000 grant (in the form of a development contract) to the makers of a French-language Canadian project from Talent Lab 2020.

The NFB’s French-language documentary studio will provide development support for a French-language project by a Quebec-based filmmaker, again from the Talent Lab’s 2020 cohort, valued at $9,000.

The NFB’s English-language division will support a project in English by a Canadian filmmaker in this year’s Talent Lab with a $5,000 grant.

For a second year, CineGround has committed to awarding postproduction services valued at $5,000 for a project made in Quebec or elsewhere in Canada.

Lastly, the Peter Wintonick Travel Grant is an initiative that defrays travel expenses for participants from outside Montreal. The grant is made possible by the generosity of the Canadian documentary community. Thanks to Bunbury Films, Cinema Politica, Colonelle Films, EyeSteelFilm, Intuitive Pictures, Invisible Hand Productions, John Walker Productions, Kensington Communications and Parabola Films.
