Perspective Canada: FIRST LOOK
A market screening of clips from upcoming films presented by Telefilm Canada at the European Film Market (EFM)

Telefilm Canada is launching a new sales initiative in 2018 for films currently in post-production that will complement the Perspective Canada program presented at Berlin’s European Film Market. Now in its twelfth year, Perspective Canada presents films in post-production, with a view to broadening their international distribution to the festival’s more than 8000 buyers, distributors and festival programmers taking part in the European Film Market.

The new Perspective Canada: FIRST LOOK initiative will present clips from upcoming films expected to hit the international festival circuit over the course of the spring and summer. This showreel is targeted to introduce fresh new talent and films to sales agents and festival programmers.

In 2018, Canada will be the “Country in Focus” at the European Film Market. Perspective Canada participants will benefit from a promotional campaign funded by Telefilm Canada to guarantee the best possible exposure for the invited Canadian films.

Selected films will have their clip screened once in a 90-minute program at the EFM. Telefilm Canada will cover the cost of assembling the clips and delivering the final montage as well as the market screening.
