Session information

Join Valerie Creighton, President and CEO of the CMF, in conversation with Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director and Co-Head of the Toronto International Film Festival as they discuss the future of Canada’s funding ecosystem. Following the most ambitious consultations undertaken by CMF, the discussion will centre on how the fund is looking at reinventing itself based on what was heard from the industry and the future of the sector given the changes in the market, development, production and distribution of Canada’s content. The results of the federal election and the stated commitment towards a new Broadcasting Act will have a direct impact on the sector. Valerie and Cameron will highlight some of the industry’s most pressing issues – including the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, systemic racism and discrimination and the urgency for progressive change to keep Canada’s screen – based sector competitive. This discussion is relevant for everyone working in Canada’s content industry today. Brought to you in partnership with Canada Media Fund
