The Producers Lab Toronto is an initiative of European Film Promotion in partnership with the Ontario Media Development Corporation and the Toronto International Film Festival. It is financially supported by the European Union’s MEDIA Mundus Programme.
Up to four producers from Australia and New Zealand (two from each country) will be selected to meet with 10 European producers (from 10 different countries) and 10 Canadian producers to discuss and pitch their projects, and participate in a number of seminars and events.

The Lab takes place 4–7 September 2013 and will include:


pitching sessions



one-to-one meetings between the European, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand producers



case studies of completed European/Canadian co-productions



presentations of financing and co-production structures



networking events with sales agents, distributors and press.

If eligible under Screen Australia’s International Festival and Marketplace Travel Program, applicants may also request up to $5,000 in travel support.
Producers should have co-production experience or a track record sufficient to make them a viable co-production partner. They should have produced at least one feature film, and priority will be given to producers whose latest film was selected for a significant international festival, was released domestically and sold internationally.
Further information, guidelines and application form are available on the Screen Australia website (http://www.screenaustralia.gov.au/funding/marketing_funds/Travel_ProducersLabToronto.aspx).
The deadline for submissions is Monday 3 June 2013. Selection of Australian participants will be made by Screen Australia by the end of July.
