Participating producers taking part in the Producers Lab Toronto 2012 program have prior co- production experience and high-quality projects suitable for the international marketplace. 12 producers from Europe and 12 from Canada will spend three days during TIFF exchanging stories, ideas and information on funding and co-production on both sides of the Atlantic. The aim is to generate business relationships leading to concrete European-Canadian co-productions, and to increase the visibility of the producers and their projects during the international festival. European participants are selected by the EFP network from the alumni of their prestigious Cannes-based networking platform Producers on the Move. Canadian producers are selected by OMDC and TIFF from an open call across Canada. The selection of all participants is based on prior experience and suitable projects and objectives for the Lab.
