Producers Lab Toronto call for applications

Two Australian producers will be selected to participate in the lab.

The Producers Lab Toronto is an initiative of European Film Promotion in partnership with the Ontario Media Development Corporation and the Toronto International Film Festival.

Two producers from Australia will be selected to meet with 10 European producers (from 10 different countries), 10 Canadian producers and two New Zealand producers to discuss and pitch their projects, and to participate in a number of seminars and events.

The lab takes place 3–6 September and will include:

  • pitching sessions
  • one-to-one meetings between the European, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand producers
  • case studies of completed European / Canadian co-productions
  • presentations of financing and co-production structures
  • networking events with sales agents, distributors and press

Eligible producers may apply for a grant of up to $5,000 in travel support. Five nights' accommodation in Toronto will also be offered to the successful applicants.

Producers should have co-production experience or a track record sufficient to make them a viable co-production partner. They should have produced at least one feature film, and priority will be given to producers whose latest film was selected for a significant international festival, was released domestically and sold internationally.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 11 July 2014. Selection of Australian participants will be made by Screen Australia by the end of July. For enquiries please contact Dale Fairbairn.
