Montréal – December 15, 2010 – Telefilm Canada wishes to inform clients planning to register for the 2011 MIPTV and MIPCOM markets that it is now obligatory for them to register via eTelefilm, our simple, efficient and secure online service.

Telefilm encourages its clients to open a permanent eTelefilm account as of today to ensure that they will be ready to fill out the MIPTV application form in January. Telefilm will send you a personal PIN within five (5) working days of receipt of the duly completed eTelefilm application forms.

More than 1000 clients are already using eTelefilm to submit applications, check the status of their projects and obtain payments via direct deposit under the Canada Feature Film Fund or the Canada Media Fund. Telefilm Canada recently extended the services available through its eTelefilm portal to cover its activities at markets and festivals, thereby ensuring smooth services for all its clients.

MIPCOM is largest event in the world for the co-production, purchasing, sales, financing and distribution of multiplatform entertainment content. The market also organizes a conference for decision-makers in the television, film, digital content, audiovisual, production and distribution industry, as well as a networking forum where participants can learn about future trends and negotiate the purchase and sale of international rights.

The MIPTV market specializes in television programs and is internationally renowned for the number and diversity of its participants, who come from around the world. It is a major market for the sale and purchasing of broadcasting rights, co-productions, financing, partnerships, consolidation of companies, transborder investment and trend forecasting, and this is true as much in terms of programming as it is for companies seeking to carve out a place for themselves in an increasingly globalized trading environment.

Canada is the fifth-largest country represented at both MIPTV and MIPCOM in terms of the number of participants, behind Great Britain, the United States, France and Germany. Under the Canada Pavilion umbrella, Telefilm Canada, its partners and sponsors offer a wide selection of attractively priced services.
