About the workshops:
Hot Docs presents full day professional development sessions on market intelligence and production for documentary filmmakers.

How do you lift words on the page to the screen for a documentary? In this interactive session, participants will get practical takeaways on how to break down scenes from the treatment to manageable bite-sized ways to ensure coverage to the story during the shoot. Prepare for your next documentary with confidence.
Session 2: Market Intelligence
Amid a changing documentary landscape, this session will outline key market trends. Learn how Canadian and international broadcasters, platforms, distributors and exhibitors have shifted their business models in response to the pandemic, and how filmmakers have adapted their approaches to pitching and project financing.
