Doc Ignite

Doc Ignite labs are offered in communities across Canada each year.

Offering direct market intelligence and skills training, each lab provides filmmakers with professional development curriculums on such topics as audience engagement, marketing and distribution to help successfully launch their films in the marketplace.

With a focus on reaching underserved regions and communities within Canada, Doc Ignite labs aim to provide new opportunities to filmmakers across all regions of Canada and continue to help them launch sustainable documentary careers.

Upcoming labs will be announced Summer 2018.
