CMPA-BC is coordinating this targeted event in conjunction with the Irish Film Board to create co-production opportunities between BC and Irish producers developing and producing drama for film and television.

The Forum will feature meetings for BC Producers with Irish counterparts for specific co-production projects that hold international appeal. These meetings will focus on the development of current projects with a view to co-production/finance/sales and will be established through in-depth profiling and matchmaking.

The BC – Ireland Co-Production Forum will also comprise networking experiences, case studies and panel discussions to develop and foster strong growth between the Canadian and UK factual programming industries. Irish and Canadian broadcasters, financiers and industry stakeholders will also be in attendance.

Note: The timing of this event has been set to precede C21’s Content London drama conference in London, UK taking place from November 29th to December 1st, 2016.
