Hot Docs Deal Maker is a one-on-one pitch meeting program for producers seeking financing and distribution from the international marketplace.
The most compelling projects will be pre-selected for these valuable meetings with key broadcasters, online platforms, funds and foundations, distributors and sales agents, and other financiers.
NEW THIS YEAR: Projects at all stages—development, production and post-production—can apply to Deal Maker.
Deal Maker will take place in Toronto:
- May 2: 3-6pm
- May 3: 2:40-4pm
- May 4: 9am-1pm
Online pitches will take place on May 11.
PLEASE NOTE: Distribution Rendezvous has merged with Deal Maker. Projects that wish to meet with distributors and sales agents, and have not yet closed financing, should apply to Deal Maker.
Applications for the 2023 Festival are closed.
