RIDM 2016 Calls For Submissions – Deadline May 31, 2016

Quebec’s only film festival dedicated to documentaries, the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) presents the best reality-based films, including the works of established directors and new talents alike. Every November, RIDM screens approximately 140 domestic and foreign productions and hosts a dozen complementary activities such as workshops, master classes, debates and roundtables. The festival typically welcomes about 100 guests from outside Quebec, and hands out 11 awards selected by juries comprised of industry professionals.

RIDM accepts submissions of short, medium-length and feature films, as well as interactive works (webdocumentaries, installations, mobile and tablet applications, and virtual and augmented reality projects).

Doc Circuit Montréal , the documentary market organized in parallel with the festival, hosts a dozen activities for documentary professionals, including workshops and presentations, and facilitates more than 1,500 business meetings.

The next edition of RIDM will be held from November 10 to 20, 2016.

Submission Deadline:  May 31, 2016 at midnight (UTC-5).
