  • What are the implications for my production?
  • Who should I work with?
  • How will this help my bottom line?
  • Where can I find out more?

To answer these and many other questions, the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund, the CMPA and Zeros 2 Heroes Media are continuing the seminar series that has been held in cities across the country. Speakers in Toronto will include:

  • Andra Scheffer, Executive Director, Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund
