The call for projects for First Pitch 2022 is now open!

The Forum RIDM is proud to announce the 12th edition of the First Pitch, a key activity held every year prior to RIDM’s professional market. These one-on-one meetings will allow a group of emerging Quebec filmmakers to meet and network with established producers from Quebec’s documentary industry. The event will take place over two intensive days, a training session on September 23 and the pitching session on September 30.

The First Pitch aims to train filmmakers in the art of pitching projects, introducing them to the documentary community and fostering new collaborations.

The Forum RIDM encourages emerging Quebec filmmakers to submit  their applications by September 4, 2022. For more information on how to submit your application, visit the Forum RIDM call for projects web page.
