Hot Docs Distribution Rendezvous

March 10

Pre-arranged, one-on-one online meetings with distributors and sales agents for finished, nearly finished and rough-cut films.

Submissions are now open. You must be registered with a Hot Docs Industry ONLINE Pass to submit.

How It Works

All applicants who meet the eligibility requirements will have the opportunity to request meetings with participating decision makers.

After producers have submitted their meeting requests, project information will be forwarded to the requested decision makers, who will review and accept or decline each request in accordance with their respective acquisitions mandates.

During Hot Docs Festival, participants will then have 20-minute meetings with the decision makers who agreed to meet with them.

Meetings are arranged subject to the discretion of decision makers and are not guaranteed. 


Projects must be in a rough-cut or complete stage.

Projects that have an international appeal and would suit theatrical, broadcast or educational audiences are encouraged to apply.

You can submit up to TWO projects. We accept:

  • Feature-length docs
  • Television docs
  • Series
  • Interactive work
  • Cross-platform media

You will be required to provide a trailer, sample footage or a screener.

Submission Close: March 10, 2022
