Launch of the Canadian version of touscoprod.ca
Along with its French partner, touscoprod.com, and with the support of Telefilm Canada, the Festival will launch the first participatory co-production website in Canada (www.touscoprod.ca). Anyone can invest amounts from $10 to $100 online toward films in development or pre-production. From now on, every year the FNC will select three films to host on its website that are directly connected to the service (touscoprod.ca).
For the 39th edition, the selected projects are Xavier Dolan’s next film, Laurence Anyways, and Les ailes de Johnny May by Marc Fafard (3D documentary). The third film will be announced exclusively during the Festival.
This initiative follows on the roundtable on participative co-production held at last year’s FNC Lab, a discussion involving a number of experts in the field.
The FNC is proud of this new and exciting collaboration and hopes this initiative will help these projects to see the light of day.
Thank you !
