The sixth edition of PRODUCERS LAB TORONTO is set to launch during the Toronto International Film Festival® from September 9 to 12, 2015. Twenty four producers from Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand have been chosen to exchange project ideas, funding information, and co-production deals on both sides of the Atlantic and Down Under. This successful networking platform has facilitated the development of several trans-Atlantic co-productions, with 17 former participants now working on 17 projects at various stages of production.

PRODUCERS LAB TORONTO 2015 will see the 24 participants taking part in various networking and pitching events, case studies, and roundtables with key industry members. The event will enable the participants to broaden their scope of projects regarding financing, creativity, and distribution in order to create trans-Atlantic co-productions.

The international co-production forum is organized and financed by European Film Promotion (EFP) in collaboration with the Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC) and the Toronto International Film Festival®. Screen Australia and the New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC) will again be supporting the event, along with Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme, the participating EFP member organisations, Eurimages, and Telefilm Canada.

Selected by the event's five partners, the participating producers have significant experience of co-production and will be presenting new projects with international market potential. Adis Djapo, known for Aida Begic’s CHILDREN OF SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina/Germany/ France/ Turkey 2012), is from EFP’s youngest member country Bosnia and Herzegovina, and is one of the ten European internationally-experienced producers coming to take part in the event.

Canadian producer participants include Simone Urdl, known for her long association with Atom Egoyan (THE CAPTIVE, Cannes 2014), and Chantelle Kadyschuk of No Trace Camping, Canadian producer of ROOM, a Canada-Ireland co-production premiering at TIFF 2015.
