The Carol producer will take centre stage when the 18th edition of the co-production market within Canada’s Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax opens on September 17.

Elizabeth Karlsen

Karlsen’s conversation titled ‘Getting From There To Here’ will cover how she built her career in the US and Europe, from her origins in the New York independent scene to launching Number 9 Films in the UK and red carpet glory in Cannes. Carol premiered in the south of France last month.

“Elizabeth Karlsen’s tremendous achievements embody what Strategic Partners sets out to deliver to its delegation annually: vision, intelligence, and inspiration,” said Strategic Partners director Laura Mackenzie. 

“She lives and breathes amongst the industry’s most forward-thinkers representing the exact message we want to deliver at Strategic Partners. This keynote conversation promises to be a much deserved celebration of her accomplishments to date.”
