Two Canadian producers who attended the market in Nova Scotia have been invited to take part in Brazil’s RioContentMarket and Mexico’s Los Cabos International Film Festival.
Quebec producer Jeremy Spry of Muse Entertainment Enterprises has been chosen by the Brazilian TV Producers Association to attend RioContentMarket in February 2015 with his TV series Time Snail.
Ontario producer Byron A Martin of Byron A Martin Productions will participate in the Los Cabos International Film Festival in November with his feature Wolverine Hotel.
The Canadian Media Production Association sponsors the co-production initiative.
“Strategic Partners 2014 was such a thrilling meeting of the minds,” said director of Strategic Partners, Laura Mackenzie.
“The buzz in the room for the entire three days was truly palpable. It was particularly exciting to witness the relationships that evolved over the course of the event, the deals discussed and soon-to-be-published, and to announce the wonderful news that Jeremy Spry and Byron Martin have been selected for our inaugural project exchange programme.
“They both embody the world-class talent we have here in Canada and the projects they have in development are impressive and perfectly suited for co-production.”
Strategic Partners ran from September 11-14 concurrent with the Atlantic Film Festival. Telefilm Canada, Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Film & Creative Industries Nova Scotia, Canada Media Fund and Canadian Media Production Association are among the event’s supporters.
