Telefilm Canada has invited Toronto-based CineCoup’s newly appointed president of distribution and sales Brad Pelman to present at its Talent To Watch event on May 19.

CineCoup’s intensive 15-week accelerator process is designed to develop and package feature projects in order to attract financing.

Following a deal at Cannes, the aim is that an international agent would be positioned to close deals with festivals. 

Industry veteran Pelman recently served at Alliance Films as evp of distribution following the sale of Maple Pictures Corp, the company he co-founded.
