The Canadians will participate in Trans Atlantic Partners as it unfolds first in June with a June 21 to 26 session in Berlin, before another two sessions in Halifax and New York City in September.

Part of the international co-production assembly this year will be a case study of The Whistleblower, the Canada-Germany co-production to be broken down by Canadian producer Christina Poivesan.

Also participating is Irish producer Tom Collins of De Facto Films, Dariusz Jablonski of Poland’s Apple Film Production, and Americans Jared Moshe of New York-based Stick! Pictures and Ron Simons of SimonSays Entertainment, also in New York.
