CONSULATE GENERAL OF CANADA TO SUPPORT TWO AUSTRALIAN FILMMAKERS TO ATTEND NORTH AMERICA'S LARGEST DOCUMENTARY EVENT
Enter your documentary or factual project in AIDC’s Cut to the Chase curated meetings marketplace for a chance to travel to North America’s largest documentary festival and industry event, the 2020 Hot Docs International Documentary Film Festival!
The Consulate General of Canada is looking to support two delegates by providing AUD $2,500 per person to attend Hot Docs 2020, happening in Toronto, Canada from 30 April – 10 May 2020.
All delegates who enter a project into AIDC’s Cut to the Chase curated meetings marketplace will now automatically be considered for the travel support package, with up to two packages being awarded.
HOT DOCS NETWORKING
The Consulate General of Canada is particularly interested in supporting filmmakers with documentaries focusing on Indigenous rights, Gender equality, LGBTQI issues, and Environment/Climate change, but all projects in Cut to the Chase will be eligible for consideration.
The final decision will be made by Consulate representatives in a series of interviews as part of Cut to the Chase.
HOT DOCS INDUSTRY PROGRAM
In order to be eligible, delegates must:
- have purchased an All Access or Gold Pass to attend AIDC 2020
- have submitted a project into Cut to the Chase
- be able to attend Hot Docs Industry Week which takes place from Monday 4 to Friday 8 May, 2020 in Toronto.
- be an Australian citizen
- Be over the age of 18 years.
- Recipients who have already received travel funding from state agencies for Hot Docs 2020 as part of the AIDC delegation are ineligible for this support.
The Consulate General of Canada will disburse AUD $2,500 directly to the successful filmmakers who must provide a travel report at the conclusion of their trip.
