The CMPA is dedicated to helping Canadian producers establish international partnerships and bring their content to screens around the world.
To thrive in today’s global marketplace, Canadian content needs to travel across our borders and onto international screens.
The CMPA works to:
Promote co-production opportunities for CMPA members.
Expand our members’ international market knowledge.
Strengthen our links with offshore industry organizations looking to broaden their own international market reach and presence.
The CMPA is as interested in working within established markets and festivals as it is in building strategic industry contacts and exploring new opportunities outside of these.
