Canadian talent rises in an industry open to all

June 27, 2017 by in Industry News

The diverse filmmaking talent from Canada will be in the spotlight at Cannes like never before, part of a concerted push by Telefilm Canada to give greater international exposure to the country’s award-winning Black and Indigenous filmmakers.

At Cannes Film Festival, Telefilm Canada’s on­­going push for diversity and inclusion in the Canadian film and TV industry will be in evidence on more than one front.

The first-time presence at the festival of Canada’s Black Screen Office (BSO) and Indigenous Screen Office (ISO) will give those two organisations, both backed in part by Telefilm, a chance to introduce themselves to the wider film world. And the participation of two up-and-coming Canadian filmmakers — Nyla Innuksuk and Tamar Bird — in the Marché du Film’s impACT Lab, a co-production workshop series in which Telefilm is one of the international partners, should help push the country’s diverse talent further into the global spotlight.
