press release

Dear EAVE Producer,

Edinburgh International Film Festival is delighted to have Canada as its country focus for 2018.

In conjunction with the public film programme, the EIFF Industry programme is seeking Canadian producers who are interested in taking part in a series of networking meetings with UK producers to help support new connections and possible future collaborations.

EIFF would like to invite seven Canadian producers to come to Edinburgh and take part in these meetings with their UK counterparts along with the opportunity to meet public funding representatives.

Also available will be the opportunity to meet some key players from the Scottish and UK film industries. In addition to travel and accommodation, included in the package will be a complimentary EIFF Industry pass, an exclusive networking lunch and a drinks reception co-hosted by Telefilm and EIFF.

The Canadian / UK Industry Focus will take place on Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 June, and EIFF is offering participants three nights’ accommodation and return flights from Canada, in addition to the EIFF Industry Pass.

Producers can register their interest by emailing, including the following information:

- Biography / Producer Credits

- Reason why you are interested in being part of this activity.


* Producers should have at least two previous feature film producer credits.

* Producers should have specific interest in working with the UK and have a current narrative feature project in development relevant for a co-production with the UK.

The deadline to register interest is Monday 28 May.

Due to the small number of places available, the more information you can provide in your registration of interest, the better.
