Hot Docs Cross Canada Tour: First Stop, Lunenburg!
September 8, 2017
Each year, Hot Docs’ industry team travels across Canada to participate in Doc Ignite workshops, meetings and round-table discussions. This year the 4th Annual Lunenburg Doc Fest will be the first stop on the tour!
Hot Docs’ Doc Ignite workshops provide filmmakers with the tools they need to launch their film in the international market place, with a specific focus on audience engagement, marketing and direct distribution.
In Lunenburg, Industry Programmer Madelaine Russo will lead a Doc Ignite Workshop on Friday, September 22 for 8-10 filmmakers plus two Round Table sessions on Saturday, September 23. Madelaine will also participate as a key expert in one-on-one project meetings for filmmakers and industry partners and decision-makers during The Doc Market.
Before joining Hot Docs, Madelaine ran the Alternate Realities Market at Sheffield Doc/Fest in the UK. She has also worked at short film distributor Ouat Media. Madelaine holds a Master of Arts in English and Cultural Studies.
