Celebrating its 17th anniversary in 2014, Strategic Partners is one of the world’s preeminent co‐production/co-financing markets. Focusing on feature film, TV and digital fiction, Strategic Partners includes projects looking for financing as well as those still at an early stage, looking for the right partner. Its linear program is designed to provide unparalleled access to international co-production possibilities – all under one roof, set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Film Festival and the vibrant, coastal city of Halifax, Nova Scotia.  

BROADEN YOUR PROJECT’S HORIZON

Global partnerships are essential to your project’s success. Top Canadian and international industry players are selected to attend Strategic Partners, including producers, investors, sales agents, funding agencies, broadcasters and distributors.  Offering over 1000 pre-scheduled 1-2-1 meetings, co-production focused roundtable sessions, cutting edge panels, visionary keynote speakers, and Atlantic Film Festival screenings and receptions – Strategic Partners is a convergence of talent and innovation, producing tangible results.

In 2014, Strategic Partners will be increasing the focus on television and digital media at the event, striking a balance between feature film, TV, and web-based projects.
