Producers Lab Toronto 2016: Mira Fornay (MIRAFOX)

Producers Lab Toronto (Sept 6 – 9, 2016), a co-production platform organized by European Film Promotion (EFP), will be held within the Toronto IFF for the seventh time. Slovak director, scriptwriter and producer Mira Fornay (MIRAFOX) is a part of this year´s thrilling selection of projects.

Producers Lab Toronto brings together selected producers from Europe with producers from Canada, Australia and New Zealand for three days of workshops, seminars, pitching sessions, meetings and social events at Canada’s premiere festival (Toronto IFF). The participants will take part in different networking events, from 1:1 meetings, funding sessions on the different possibilities in Canada, Down Under and Europe through different financing models to the case study on Unless.

Slovak cinema has already had a representative at the Producers Lab Toronto. Silvia Panáková (Arina) presented her up-coming film Piagry (d. Ivo Trajkov) in 2015.
