Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal

November 17th - 27th, 2022

The Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) 25th edition will take place from November 17 to 27, 2022. In numbers, this year’s selection tallies up to 134 films from 49 countries that aim to reflect the current state of the world, while also showcasing the sheer breadth of creativity and diversity in documentary cinema. Several discussions and activities, all free of charge, are also included in the lineup, thus enabling important conversations around documentary to take place, and bringing the ‘encounters’ (or ‘rencontres’) component of the festival to the forefront.

For this anniversary edition, the RIDM carries on with its mission to bring together the films of both established directors and new talents. A whopping 58 emerging filmmakers will present their first or second works at this year’s edition. The festival is also delighted to welcome 27 international filmmakers to its event, and to acknowledge the work of female directors, by presenting again this year a program in which a majority of films were made by women.
