Spotlight on India and UK at 16th annual event in Halifax, Canada

New Delhi: The spotlight at the 16th annual event in September in Halifax in Nova Scotia (Canada) will be on India

And for the second year in a row, the United Kingdom will also be highlighted at the event from 12 to 15 September.

Ms Laura Mackenzie, Director of Strategic Partners - one of the world’s top co-production/co-financing markets focusing on feature film, TV and multiplatform fiction - says "Strategic Partners held a soft focus on India to introduce a small number of India producers and officials to the event. This has already contributed to a Canadian film shot in India.”

The spotlight on India and the UK is timely, she said, adding that: “Momentum continues to build in the number of Canadian and International producers looking to collaborate with India and the UK is a natural co-spotlight given their experience in successfully capitalizing on their co-pro treaty with India many times."

Offering an intimate, organized forum for projects seeking financing, as well as those at an early stage - looking for the right partner, Strategic Partners’ linear program is designed to provide unparalleled access to international co-production possibilities - all under one roof.

The deadline for the Strategic Partners‘ call for producer applications and industry registrations is June 28. Application/Registration forms are now available at

Top Canadian and international industry players are selected to attend, including producers, investors, sales agents, funding agencies, broadcasters and distributors. Offering close to 1000 pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings, co-production focused roundtable sessions, cutting edge panels, visionary keynote speakers, screenings and receptions.

Strategic Partners is a convergence of talent and innovation, producing tangible results.

“It was at Strategic Partners that we were introduced to producer, Karen Shaw’s project Khoya in 2012. It‘s an interesting project and given our experience in International productions, we came onboard instantly," said Guneet Monga, producer, Sikhya Entertainment, India (Gangs of Wasseypur, Peddlers.)

"Guneet Monga and I connected during our participation in Trans Atlantic Partners, and further cemented the relationship at Strategic Partners,” said Karen Shaw, producer, Quarterlife Crisis Productions, Canada (Khoya, The Good Fence). “Khoya was shot in India, where we worked with Guneet, and the film is now in post production."
