Intense networking and pitching events among producers from Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia have just started at the Toronto International Film Festival®. It’s the sixth edition of PRODUCERS LAB TORONTO, running September 9 to 12, created for 24 hand-picked participants to exchange project ideas and funding information for trans-atlantic co-production deals.
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.
