Canada – UK Co-Production Forum 2023
The Canada – UK Co-Production Forum aims to facilitate conversations between Canadian and UK companies producing screen-based content to explore co-production and collaboration, and to exchange information and ideas.
The CMPA and the High Commission of Canada in the United Kingdom are partnering to offer Canadian companies the opportunity to gain foreign market insight through masterclasses and panels, as well as the opportunity to expand their professional networks and explore co-production opportunities through a series of 1:1 meetings.
The May edition will be the first of two this year. We will be back in November for our hybrid edition at Content London! More information to come.
