Rendezvous at the Canada Pavilion and take part in some of the unique and stimulating events and initiatives such as Perspective Canada, First Look, Producers Without Borders and much more!

Canada Country in Focus!

EFM will definitely have a Canadian flavour this year! We can’t wait for Canadian creators to use this global showcase to reach new audiences and create export opportunities for our industry.

Fortunately, turning challenges into creative energy, and into original, entertaining stories, is part of our DNA.  ̶  Carolle Brabant, Executive Director, Telefilm Canada
