Canadian Creative Accelerator (CCA)
February 5, 2021
The Canadian Creative Accelerator (CCA) is an initiative of the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service at The Consulate General of Canada in Los Angeles. The initiative aims to increase the scope and global reach of Canadian television, film, music, and new media productions. Specifically geared towards the Los Angeles market, the CCA is aimed at emerging and established companies who are ready for international growth.
For this upcoming Spring cohort, we invite Canadian production companies working specifically in french-language unscripted, scripted and / or factual television to apply. Applicants should have a lead project that is either already produced or in the advanced stages of development with the goal of finding partners or buyers for their format in the US. Applicants must work at or own a Canadian company. At this time, we are not inviting english-language productions to apply.
Comprised of three weeks of half-day sessions spread over three months, this upcoming cohort will begin in April 2021. Throughout the three-month period, successful participants will have a unique opportunity to gain access to some of the industry's most influential television producers, financiers, distributors and talent in Hollywood. Participants will participate in panels, networking events and one-on-one meetings, amongst other online events. Due to Covid-19, this cohort will be fully virtual. Only those who can commit to the full scope of the program should apply.
Applications close at 11:59 pm EST on March 1st 2021. All of the virtual programming will be in English.
