Hot off our Berlinale and European Film Market presses: Meet the 15 Canadian producers selected to participate in this year’s Doc and Fiction Toolbox initiatives, happening online from February 10 to 16, 2022 as part of the European Film Market’s Diversity & Inclusion.
This initiative offers workshops intended for producers from underrepresented groups.

Of course, our Canadian talent will be there in a big way! For the third year, Telefilm Canada and the SODEC (Société de développement des entreprises culturelles) are supporting the initiative, in collaboration with ImagineNative, the Indigenous Screen Office, the Black Screen Office, the Canada Media Fund, the Canadian Media Producers Association, and Creative BC.
