24 producers from Europe, Canada, Australia, NZ to join program
LONDON — European Film Promotion and its partners have unveiled the 24 participants who will take part in the 4th edish of Producers Lab Toronto, a trans-Atlantic networking platform that runs Sept. 4-7 during the Toronto Film Festival.
The lineup includes 10 producers each from Europe and Canada, with another four from Australia and New Zealand, which are the guest countries this year.
Participants will take part in pitching sessions, case studies and roundtables, and various networking events with key people from the industry.
European participants are selected by the EFP network from the alumni of its Cannes-based networking platform Producers on the Move. Canadian producers are chosen by OMDC and the festival from an open call, while Screen Australia and New Zealand Film Commission select the participants from their countries.
Producers Lab Toronto has assisted in the development of several European-Canadian co-productions over the past few years. Twenty-one projects were discussed in 2011, and 25 last year.
