Word from the Short Film Market Team
Back for a 14th edition, the Short Film Market has been revamped with a new team while maintaining its steadfast mission to offer an eclectic and engaging program to festi-valgoers, creators and professionals from here and abroad !
Amongst our new features for 2018 are two Boot Camps that will equip filmmakers and producers with regards to their project submissions for two major players, Telefilm Canada and VICE, whereas Elevator Pitches will call on participants to promote interest of renowned deciders in a matter of a short elevator ride.
In an effort to facilitate meetings between the local industry and our international guests, the very popular Networking Breakfast will be back with a new format, taking place twice this year. And since our main audiences are never ignored, they will have the opportunity to attend three roundta-ble discussions free of charge, with an exciting group of panelists dealing with varied themes such as documentary screenwriting and music videos.
Let us also mention that we will be happy to welcome at this year’s Short Film Market one of REGARD’s good friends, actor, director and screenwriter Robin Aubert, who will be offering a master class not to be missed.We wish you all a great Market !
