The Documentary Organization of Canada – Québec Chapter (Doc Quebec) invites you to meet with two of the most important television networking documentary broadcasters, Radio-Canada and Canal D.
Georges Amar, filmmaker and coordinator of the documentary and Grands Reportages at Radio-Canada and Jean-Pierre Laurendeau, vice chairman of programming for Canal D, will talk about their respective stations and the place of documentary in their schedule. Regarding content and format, they will explain what they’re looking for, as well as what they don’t want. They will also discuss programming perspectives in regard to new broadcasting platforms.
The discussion will lead us to the central question about the necessary collaboration between documentary filmmakers and television: is it really an unnatural relationship?
