Telefilm Canada’s Executive Director, Carolle Brabant, who has been working in the audiovisual industry for over 20 years, is highly knowledgeable about the challenges and opportunities this vibrant sector has to offer, and she will be presenting The Canadian audiovisual industry: Where talent means business at the Mount Stephen Club in Montreal on Monday, November 7th.
Thanks to unique audiovisual productions, Canadian talent is gaining more and more attention, both here at home and abroad. The international success of films like Incendies and Barney’s Version as well as the numerous awards won by Canadian productions at various film festivals in recent years clearly demonstrate this trend. Market globalization and the shift to digital platforms also offer interesting business opportunities.
Transforming a film, TV or new media idea into reality demands a dedicated team working relentlessly in the wings. Who are these businesses that create distinctly Canadian audiovisual content? How do they contribute to the Canadian economy and to the dissemination of our culture and our brand image abroad? Why should we support them? This is what Ms. Brabant is inviting you to discover.
