INTERNATIONAL NETWORKING DAY
Held during imagineNATIVE Festival’s Industry Days October 22 - 26, 2019 in Toronto, this full-day event of micro-meetings and a networking reception, is the only market event of its kind in the world dedicated to Indigenous screen and digital content, giving Indigenous creatives valuable face-to-face time with industry leaders in various sections of the industry.
International Networking Day streams participants according to their interests and what they are seeking: last year, there were four separate 90-minute sessions (one Festivals, one Sales & Distribution, and two Development, Production, and Representation sessions) comprised of one-on-one round-robin style meetings, with industry decision-makers.
In 2018, International Networking Day attracted over 80 participants and 60 industry leaders. We are looking for talent agents, producers and production companies, and exhibitors of any platform to submit applications to be industry leaders.
Spots for this event are limited, with selected leaders offering the most collaborative, creative opportunities.
Schedule and Deadlines:
May: Participation call for international content agents, producers and exhibitors
August: Participation call for Canadian content agents, producers and exhibitors
September: Participant call for Indigenous screen creatives to apply
October 15: Final schedule to Indigenous screen participants
