Established québecois producers and emerging filmmakers are invited to submit their documentary projects by September 15th as part of these two pitching events.


We are now accepting submissions to the prized EURODOC Pitch! Five Quebec-based documentary producers will be selected for the opportunity to pitch live in the hopes of receiving a $4,000 grant and securing a much coveted slot for one of Europe’s leading training programs.

  • offers its participants workshops and meetings with international professionals
  • All Quebec-based documentary producers, from emerging to established
  • Projects with an european coproduction and international broadcast potential
  • Apply by September 15, 2016
The five finalists will be selected to participate in a live pitch session during Doc Circuit Montréal (Nov. 2016) before an audience of DCM delegates and a jury of EURODOC representatives and European Commissioning Editors. Presented in collaboration with AQPM.
