EFP, OMDC and TIFF set up platform for co-productions between Europe and CanadaWith the aim of exchanging creative energy, experience and talents and promoting the co-production of international film projects, 12 European and 12 Canadian producers will be meeting for the new initiative entitled PRODUCERS LAB TORONTO. Created by European Film Promotion (EFP) in collaboration with the Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC) and the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), the programme will be launched this year between September 10 -12, during the Toronto International Film Festival. Regarded as the key gateway to the North American market, TIFF has always been important for European films. The MEDIA International programme of the European Union is supporting the initiative financially.The line-up of the participants can be found below.
The programme is designed for independent producers who must have a track record of successful project development and production. Besides demonstrating a strong motivation in co-producing with Canada or Europe, they all have to be experienced in international co-productions and should have one project ready to pitch. The EFP network has selected the European participants from the group of EFP's PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE between 2006 - 2009. The participants from Canada have been chosen by OMDC and TIFF. "Following on from our established PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE programme in Cannes, this new initiative aims to facilitate and increase international co-productions not only between Europeans, but also between European and Canadian producers", says Renate Rose, EFP Managing Director. "We intend to foster the circulation of European films in Canada as well as Canadian films in Europe. Moreover, PRODUCERS LAB TORONTO will provide a first stage for preparingco-productions from countries which have rarely co-produced with Canada to date.""OMDC is committed to supporting our clients with new business opportunities on the international stage", states Karen Thorne-Stone, President and CEO of the OMDC. "PRODUCERS LAB TORONTO will build important relationships between Canadian and European producers, which we are confident will lead to creative co-productions and long-lasting partnerships. We are excited by the 24 delegates that have been selected and look forward to supporting their future collaborations."Besides various networking opportunities, the three-day event will include pitching sessions, one-to-one-meetings and case studies of completed European / Canadian co-productions, analyses and presentations of financing sources and co-production structures.
