The Montreal International Documentary Festival (French: Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montreal) is a Canadian documentary film festival, staged annually in Montreal, Quebec.[1]

In English, the festival now goes by the name Montreal International Documentary Festival, while retaining the French-language abbreviation RIDM).[2]

The RIDM was founded in 1998 by documentary filmmakers who wanted to create a platform for new perspectives and innovative practices in documentary film. The program, organized around social, political and environmental themes, features distinctive films chosen for their unique perspective and artistic strengths. Workshops and panel discussions welcome audiences, professionals and partners alike.

The RIDM is also home to "Doc Circuit Mtl" Quebec's foremost documentary marketplace, established in 2004, to support and stimulate independent documentary production in Quebec and to bring filmmakers, craftspeople, producers, distributors and programmers of every kind together.
