Woman pitching her film
Pre-arranged, one-on-one meetings with distributors and sales agents for finished, nearly finished and rough cut films.

Applications for the 2023 edition will open in January.

How It Works

All applicants who meet the eligibility requirements will have the opportunity to request meetings with participating decision makers.

After producers have submitted their meeting requests, project information will be forwarded to the requested decision makers, who will review and accept or decline each request in accordance with their respective acquisitions mandates.

During Hot Docs Festival, participants will then have 20-minute meetings with the decision makers who agreed to meet with them.

Meetings are arranged subject to the discretion of decision makers and are not guaranteed.
