RIDM: The FFF Bayern will be present in Montreal with a Bavaria film producers' delegation


Aside from the regional partnership between Québec and Bavaria, there is also a more than 10 years old close relationship between the FFF Bayern and SODEC, the Québec association for the development of cultural enterprises. Already in 2014, a delegation of documentary producers from Québec visited the DOK.fest in Munich and took part in a coproduction meeting organized in the context of DOK.forum.

In return, a Bavarian delegation of seven producers and two representatives of the FFF Bayern will now participate in the RIDM in Montréal from November 15-19. Their primary focus will be the Doc Circuit Montréal on November 16-18. The participants will include Ingo Fliess (if…Productions), Oliver Gernstl (megaherz GmbH), Alexander Krötsch (schöne neue filme), Nicole Leykauf (Leykauf Film GmbH & Co. KG), David Lindner (Filmallee – David Lindner Filmproduktion), Marieke Schroeder (Thali Media GmbH) and Thomas Wartmann (Filmquadrat.dok GmbH).

Doc Circuit Montréal is the only bilingual market for documentaries in North America and it was founded to strengthen the national and international production and distribution of documentary films. It offers professional workshops, presentations and round tables, which aim to strengthen the exchanges between the different international actors in the film business and to promote relationships in the film industry.
