The co-production market is scheduled to take place from Sept 13-16 in Halifax, Canada.

Producers get access to financiers and industry leaders in intimate meetings and can also attend keynote speeches, panel discussions and networking events.

“We have always had strong representation from these two regions at Strategic Partners, so engaging them as Spotlight Countries – and emphasising the potential for co-venture / co-production between the UK, the USA, Canada, and the rest of the world – makes perfect sense,” Strategic Partners director Jan Miller said.

“2012 is a big year for Strategic Partners. We are marking 15 years of bringing industry players together in a convivial yet effective environment, and each year we see the appetite for collaboration grow and evolve. It’s very satisfying, and it motivates us.
