Screen Ireland Seeking Expressions of Interest for Irish Delegation to BANFF World Media Festival and Vancouver Trade Mission
03 Apr 2019 : News Desk
BANFF World Media Festival
Screen Ireland has partnered with the Canadian Embassy Dublin, Creative BC and CMPA (Vancouver) to bring a delegation of Irish producers to the Banff World Media Festival (9th – 12th June 2019) and Vancouver, BC (13th & 14th June 2019) with a particular emphasis on TV Drama.

BANFF WORLD MEDIA FESTIVAL (9th – 12th June)

The Banff World Media Festival takes place in Banff, Alberta, Canada from 9-12 June 2019 and will see Screen Ireland provide support for up to 8 Irish production companies to participate at this networking event. Screen Ireland will cover the cost of accreditation to the festival in Banff and provide a subsidy to alleviate the cost of travel and accommodation for the trip. This offer is available to one producer applicant per company, and we can sponsor a maximum of eight companies.

Celebrating its 40th year in 2019, BANFF has grown into a must-attend annual conference attracting over 250 international buyers and a wide-ranging cross-section of television and digital media professionals from around the world, BANFF delivers a comprehensive examination of the most critical issues facing the television and digital media industries through keynotes from industry leaders, contentious panel discussions, pre-booked Face-to-Face Meetings with industry decision-makers, expert forecasts, celebrity Master Classes, networking opportunities, critical case studies, key strategy sessions and more.

The 2019 program and speaker list will be announced soon and updates can be found here.

VANCOUVER TRADE MISSION (13th – 14th June)
The eight producers will then travel to Vancouver, BC to attend B2B meetings and networking events. The trade mission will provide producers the opportunity to explore co-production possibilities with Canadian producers through events and meetings organised in collaboration with Creative BC and CMPA.
