TO THE NORTH
All Together While Apart
It has long been recognized that Canada is rich in talent but lack the same opportunities as our American neighbors in the film industry. The Movie Expo exists to connect Canadian filmmaking talent to the world stage. We are bringing the network, knowledge, and prospective collaborations up to Canada. By housing them all under one roof in an intensive 2 day interactive showcase in Toronto.
CONNECTING AROUND THE WORLD

Hollywood has dominated the feature film production for the past 70 decades and is recognized as the world’s most prestigious film industry. It is time to bring our neighbors up north to share industry insights and build relationships.
The Asian film industry is becoming the largest feature film production market globally, and the Chinese investments dominate the industry. We are connecting Canadians with key Chinese investors in the industry
