One-on-One for Emerging Filmmakers

ONE-ON-ONE FOR EMERGING FILMAKERS

 10 EMERGING FILMMAKERS
1 PITCH TRAINING SESSION
10 ESTABLISHED PRODUCERS
1 DAY OF ONE-ON-ONE PITCHES


WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 28TH 2016 AND WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 5TH 2016

 

ARRQ, 5154 RUE ST-HUBERT, MONTRÉAL, QC

 

The One-on-One for Emerging Filmmakers seeks to help young documentary creators develop collaborations with established local producers. Organised over 1 1/2 days, the event encourages inter-generational dialogue and offers a platform to exchange ideas and network with industry professionals.

Following a call for projects in early August, 10 selected filmmakers will be invited to attend a pitch-training session with producer Bob Moore from EyeSteelFilm on Wednesday September 28th. They will then pitch their films in both a Forum and One-on-One format during a full-day of meetings and consultations with 10 established documentary producers the following Wednesday, October 5th. Recent editions have shown these pitch sessions to be very successful, and have allowed directors to match themselves with producers and to benefit from their expertise and advice. A few success stories from past editions of the One-on-One for Emerging Filmmakers:
