Still from Despite the Falling Snow

Participants for Producers Lab Toronto announced

The sixth edition of the Creative Europe-funded transatlantic co-production forum Producers Lab Toronto will be held at the Toronto International Film Festival from 9 - 12 September 2015.

Run by European Film Promotion (EFP), 24 producers from Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have been chosen to exchange project ideas, funding information and co-production deals.

The participants will take part in various networking and pitching events, case studies and roundtables, enabling them to broaden the scope of their projects financially and creatively with a view to facilitating transatlantic co-productions. 

The producers selected to take part have significant co-production experience and will be presenting new projects with international market potential. Adis Dapo, known for Aida Begic’s Children of Sarajevo, is from EFP’s youngest member country, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

From the UK, Enlightenment Productions' Hanan Kattan (Despite the Falling Snow) has been selected to take part.
