The Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) has turned to Indiegogo to fund screenings for young audiences.

The crowdfunding campaign, to run to March 1 2013, will help underwrite screenings that started last year, and aim to introduce documentary cinema via special screenings in Montreal. In all, RIDM is looking for CAD$10,000, and any amount is sought from Indiegogo donors.

Quebec’s only film festival dedicated to documentaries will hold its 2013 edition in November.
