Forum Registration

“Always worth visiting, and at the top of my list as a documentary market. Professionally run, welcoming and productive… an excellent mix of work and convivial company. I look forward to visiting every chance I have.”
- Simon Nasht

The Hot Docs Forum is a superb opportunity to place a documentary project in front of key international partners, as well as to gather invaluable up-to-the-minute market intelligence. In addition to pitch team members and attending broadcasters, Forum accreditation is made available to approximately 300 industry professionals.

The All-Access pass provides access to the Hot Docs Forum, as well as all industry events at the Hot Docs Festival and conference, including screenings, panels, seminars, The Festival Doc Shop, networking receptions, Awards Presentation, etc.

Eligibility & Registration

Documentary professionals (independent producers, representatives of foundations, public agencies, film institutes, sales agents, distributors, etc.) from anywhere in the world can register for an All-Access Pass. Due to high demand, seating may be limited to one participant per production company.

Please note:

  • An All-Access Pass is non-transferable;
  • In the case of over-subscription the Hot Docs Forum will not be able to accommodate all registrants;
  • The Hot Docs Forum venue (forum, lounge and lunchroom) is restricted to accredited All-Access Pass delegates only. If you have meetings scheduled with people who are not delegates during the Hot Docs Forum you must arrange them elsewhere.

Registration opens January 2015. For more information, CLICK HERE

Please note that the Hot Docs Forum is a limited-seating event requiring advanced registration with an All-Access Pass. Passes will only remain on sale until all passes have sold out.
