TALENT TO WATCH 2023
Benefit from Forum RIDM's recommendation
As a designated partner of the Talent to watch program, the Forum RIDM will be able to recommend a first feature documentary project to Telefilm Canada.
Telefilm Canada's maximum financial support is $150,000.
The Forum RIDM therefore invites emerging creators to submit a first feature documentary project to be recommended for Telefilm Canada's Talent to Watch program.
Selected filmmakers will then be eligible to make an official submission to Telefilm Canada's program.
Please note that there is also a festival component and a direct access component. If you are eligible for these components, a recommendation by a partner is not mandatory.
