Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montreal

Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montreal also known by the acronym RIDM is Montreal, Canada's international documentary film festival.

In English, the festival now goes by the name Montreal International Documentary Festival (while using the French-language abbreviation RIDM).[1]

The RIDM (literally Documentary International Meetings of Montreal) 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.
