Sunny Side of the Doc (SSD) is an international market dedicated to documentary and factual content where industry gathers to sell or buy projects and programs, and to find partners. It includes six highly coveted pitching sessions for up to 36 projects. The deadline to propose projects is April 25, 2018 and you must be registered to apply.
On Screen Manitoba will be organizing a bilingual delegation. Florence Girot, whom you may have met at All Access 2018, will work with OSM to provide the following services:
– Pre-market information (in-person information session with MB producers who have attended SSD);
– A pre-market Skype session and a follow up document outlining key stakeholders in France and other French language territories in attendance (for English and French language producers);
– Logistical support in setting up group meetings; and
– On-the-ground networking support.
In addition, Florence will provide OSM with recommendations for travel and accommodation (notably in view of a potential rail strike). There will be a small fee for delegation services in order to facilitate the organization of a networking event.
