The 2021 edition of the Forum RIDM marked the return of in-person activities after a long absence. At the Cinémathèque québécoise and the Centre Pierre-Péladeau, many of you converged to celebrate documentary and its community with us! 
Through its workshops, discussions and networking opportunities, the RIDM Forum has, once again, established itself as an essential venue for the documentary community. Thanks to its hybrid format, and in particular the Online One-on-one pitches, presented in collaboration with the APFC, the Forum also allowed to connect local creators and professionals with international industry representatives.

The closing event of the Forum, presented by DOC Québec, was the occasion to announce the recipients of the Talent Lab grants and supports as well as the winner of the franC doc grant.

Participants in the Talent Lab, presented by Netflix, qualified for four prizes offered in collaboration with Canal DONFNFB, and Cineground. This year’s winners are the following:

In addition, the RIDM Forum, in collaboration with franC doc, offered a $2000 grant to an emerging filmmaker based in the region. This year’s recipient is:

Congratulations to all the winners!
