NEW PROGRAMS ANNOUCED FOR TDF 2008
The Toronto Documentary Forum (TDF) is North America's premier market event for the international documentary industry working in the social, cultural and political genres and, new in 2008, will be opening its Regular Program to a broader genre spectrum of non-fiction projects in series and mini-series formats.
In 2008 the TDF will also be introducing the option for some of the pre-selected projects to select whether they'd prefer to present their projects to the public forum room or in a series of private meetings.
The TDF continues its Rough Cut Program for projects which have significant footage shot but do not yet have a market partner.
A two-day, limited-seating event, the TDF is focused around a slate of up to 38 pre-selected international project presentations showcased in either the public Forum Room or in private meetings. The TDF's intimate and intense format has proven extremely successful in building international partnerships and raising additional financing for both presenting and observing producers, as well as providing a preeminent source of up-to-the-minute market intelligence. This spring the TDF's 500 delegates will include 130+ key commissioning editors and programming executives, as well as leading producers, distributors and sales agents from around the globe.
