“Windows to the World: From Art House to Your House”

For independent film, necessity became the mother of invention in the past few months of the pandemic. This panel explores novel partnerships created by distributors, exhibitors, festivals and platforms to find a flexible and open ecosystem in the pursuit of maintaining a sustainable business. What is the role of the various players in these new models? How does one nurture the love of cinema and how can this love translate across "windows"?

How to set up co-productions between Canada and Europe, even with not so typical projects? Night of the Kings directed by Philippe Lacôte from Ivory Coast has been selected for TIFF and Venice. Igor Drljaca's Tabija is the Bosnian Canadian director's anticipated next film, still in post-production due to the pandemic. How did Canada and Europe get together on these projects and how did they manage to set up the co-production structure with funding from Telefilm Canada and Eurimages?
