SEPTEMBER 14 - 16, 2017


Global partnerships are essential to your project’s success. Strategic Partners is the place where they begin. Discover new talent, forge new business partnerships, and reconnect with existing ones at Strategic Partners - a convergence of creativity and innovation, producing tangible results.

One of the worlds most established co‐production/co-financing markets, the 19th edition of Strategic Partners, is now open for project submissions, and industry registrations.  In 2016, the focus is on dramatic feature film, television, and digital fiction content created for new and existing platforms. This includes projects in all stages of development, looking for financing and essential partnerships. This September, Strategic Partners will include 50 producers from around the globe, representing a ‘best in class’ roster of officially selected projects.  To support these projects, Strategic Partners will host an international senior level delegation of financiers, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents and funding agencies, looking to invest.   

Strategic Partners is a one-stop shop for projects looking for partners. A global trendsetter, the event attracts producers whose projects represent fresh and innovative ways to tell stories, across all platforms.  Priority is given to projects considered to have both commercial and international appeal.  Strategic Partners provides a full agenda of 25 minute, pre-scheduled 1-2-1 meetings with investors/broadcasters/distributors/sales agents, participation in investor and co-production focused roundtable sessions, cutting edge panels and visionary keynote speakers. The event’s two-day linear program is designed to provide unparalleled access to international co-production/ co-financing possibilities. All of this happens under one roof, set against the backdrop of the Atlantic Film Festival and the vibrant, coastal city of Halifax, Nova Scotia.
