OMDC’s International Finance Forum 2013 will host a panel on Sunday about independent producers making films that succeed commercially and critically in a tough marketplace.

The panelists will include Iain Canning and Emile Sherman of See-Saw Films (The King’s Speech), Celine Rattray from Maven Pictures (The Kids Are Alright), Jay Van Hoy of Parts & Labor (Beginners), and Roman Paul from Razor Films (Wadjda).

The panel is closed to the public and is exclusively for IFF2013 producers. Organisers selected 40 Canadian and international producer teams for the eighth annual Toronto co-financing market.

The selected producers are working on new films by Donald Petrie, Timo Vuorensola, Baltasar Kormakur, Nick Broomfield and Gillies Mackinnon, to name a few.

Screen International editor Wendy Mitchell will moderate the panel.
