Doc Circuit Montréal launches the URBANIA Mobile Pitch

Doc Circuit Montréal launches the URBANIA Mobile Pitch, 

names this year's Quebec decision makers and announces pass sales



Doc Circuit Montréal (DCM) is pleased to launch the URBANIA Mobile Pitch today. The competition is an opportunity for Quebec’s filmmakers to have their multimedia short documentaries released through the URBANIA mobile platform. DCM is also taking this opportunity to announce the influential Quebec’s decision makers who have confirmed their attendance and the sale of passes for the 13th annual DCM.



Doc Circuit Montréal, in partnership with URBANIA, is seeking Quebec-based directors to propose short documentary projects for release on mobile platforms. The URBANIA Mobile Pitch will be held during Doc Circuit Montréal, from November 11 to 15 this year. Participants will compete for the URBANIA award, including $3000 in cash, $1500 worth of equipment rentals courtesy of SLA Location and $1500 in post-production services provided by Plasma, for a total of $6000. 


Through a range of different forms of expression, such as vertical and/or horizontal videos, sounds, text, statistics, animated images, illustrations and audio, participants will reflect on the mobile format and its impact on users. The winning documentary project will be released on the navigation platform developed by URBANIA.


The project is designed to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and the erosion of barriers between genres.


● Open to all filmmakers residing in Quebec

● Project submissions to run 5 minutes or less

● Submit a complete entry package

● Deadline : September 24th, 2017


Doc Circuit Montréal is proud to announce the participation of several influential decision makers from Quebec in the market’s largest activity, the One-on-One. The activity is a full day of one-on-one meetings between producers, directors and decision makers: public and private broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, festival programmers, institutions and foundations. It is a unique opportunity to create new partnerships and boost new projects.


Confirmed Quebec decision makers:

Tina Apostolopoulos (Bell Media), Elisabeth Daigle (Télé-Québec), Georges Amar (Radio-Canada), Jean-Pierre Laurendeau (Canal D), Suzanne Hénaut (Radio-Canada), Isabelle Duchesne (Explora), Nathalie D’Souza and Pierre Gang (TV5).


The list of decision makers is updated daily:



Registration is now open for One-on-One meetings (November 14).

By registering, producers and filmmakers with documentary projects at any stage of production will have:

● the chance to set up meetings with more than 80 decision makers (broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, festival and foundation representatives); 

● access to three days of presentations, workshops and networking activities (November 13 to 15).
