The CMPA is organizing a trade-focused mission to Melbourne, Australia from November 16 to November 23, 2013 (inclusive of travel dates). Up to twelve (12) producers will be given the opportunity to fully participate in the Screen Producers Association of Australia’s (SPAA) annual conference, including conference panels, business to business meetings and networking events. Preliminary information about the SPAA conference is available here.
This mission follows on the heels of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the CMPA and SPAA earlier this year as a commitment to enhance co-production opportunities between Canadian and Australian independent screen-based producers.
Financial assistance of up to $3000 or 50% of real costs (whichever amount is less) will be available to help offset a portion of travel and accommodation expenses.
8 p.m. EDT, Friday, August 23, 2013
