Screen Australia is calling Australian producers to apply for Producers Lab Toronto – an initiative of the European Film Promotion, the Ontario Media Development Corporation and the Toronto International Film Festival – which will take place from 3-6 September 2014.
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 pitch their projects and participate in a number of seminars and events.
To be eligible for selection you need to have produced at least one feature film and have co-production experience, or a track record sufficient to make you a viable co-production partner. Priority will be given to producers whose latest film was selected for a significant international film festival, released domestically and sold internationally.
The successful applicants will be offered five night’s accommodation in Toronto, and can apply for a grant of up to $5,000 in travel support.
For further information, guidelines and an application form visit the Screen Australia website.
Deadline for submissions is Friday 11 July 2014.
Screen Australia will select the Australian participants by the end of July.
