Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival
Toronto, Ontario, Canada / April 26-May 6, 2018 / hotdocs.ca / A, V, P
More than 200,000 people per year flock to Hot Docs, the most active documentary market in North America. Pitch forums to stimulate international co-production financing, deal-making workshops, and a “Distribution Rendezvous” that sets up one-on-one meetings to help finish rough cut films all work hand-in-hand to ensure that buyers on the ground are trigger-happy and moviemakers score a sale. One of Hot Docs’ many killer cash prizes, the Don Haig Award, invites its $10,000 recipient to name an emerging female doc moviemaker to receive an additional $5,000.
