Emerging Markets & International Financing

(60 mins)


Co-productions are integral to film financing as motion picture financing continues to rebuild. With box office, ancillaries and pre-sale values under pressure in traditional markets, will the new frontiers of China, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Korea, Brazil and Russia change the international financing landscape? The Asian markets in particular are growing rapidly and many western companies need the capital and the growth. This session will focus on China, Hong Kong and India and look at where the potential exists for co-ventures/co-productions with Canada. Moderator: Andrew Ooi.
