HOT DOCS DOC IGNITE
*** APPLICATIONS OPEN UNTIL SEPT 13 ***
Friday, Sept 21, 9am – 2:30pm
10 filmmakers will be selected to take part in Hot Docs’ Doc Ignite workshop. This intimate workshop offers key insights into how to write a treatment and pitch your film to broadcasters and grantors in order to finance your film, and will also teach you how to engage audiences and market your film upon its completion. Participants will learn how to apply best practice strategies directly to their projects, through tailored hands-on tools and exercises.
Madelaine Russo, Industry Programmer of Dealmaker at Hot Docs in Toronto, will lead the workshop and bring with her valuable knowledge and experience in the film industry. We welcome Madelaine and look forward to her participation at the fifth annual Doc Fest.
