Toronto International Film Festival Focus On: Sundance Productions

9/09/2014

In this session with Sundance Productions we’ll discuss the landscape of documentary films being made for linear cable, PAY TV and digital platforms all over the world at the 2014 TIFF Conference. More and more opportunities for storytelling and strong voices that have not necessarily been heard exist today. But how do these documentaries get financed? How are these stories presented and what forms are available for them? Many long form docus, non fiction series and special event programs are making noise but it’s the voice and POV of the documentary filmmaker with story and character that are breaking through the clutter.
