We believe in the special bond that unifies the Canadian and French industries.

It weaves, withers, and rebuilds itself around synergies, of talent, creation, innovation, diversity, expertise,
financing, and marketing. Moreover, it is the result of a shared political drive to support creative industries
and guide them in their structural evolution.

Focus Canada at the 30th Fipa will highlight the richness of these exchanges through a large Canadian
delegation whose scope unites public and private sectors and both French and English-speaking spheres;
plus, the audiovisual, digital, musical, and educational markets. Creative talent, producers, distributors,
platforms, institutions… All will be present at Fipa, so that partnerships can be developed and new collaborations
can be formed.

Works that are in competition, carte blanche at prestigious festivals, professional events, and networking:
Focus Canada promises excellent and constructive discussion, shared experiences and expertise, new talent
to discover, and strong synergies to explore.
