International Strategy & Delegations

International Strategy

The purpose of the Canadian Media Producers Association's (CMPA) three‐year strategy is to generate and support activities that create and promote further international co‐production opportunities, expand and disseminate market information to the CMPA’s membership and strengthen links with offshore industry organizations looking to broaden their own international market reach and presence. The strategy strives to work within the established context of existing major markets and festivals while building strategic contacts among industry professionals and exploring possibilities outside the traditional events.

Every attempt is made to ensure that the Association's international marketing strategy is practical and will provide a real service to CMPA members.
