Convergent Canada: Are we there yet?
Thurs. Oct. 25, 2012 - 10:00am – 11:00am. 

The Canada Media Fund made a bold and progressive move in 2010 by introducing the Convergence Funding Stream to Television Producers in Canada, spring-boarding a whole new breed of cross-media producers, collaborations and ground breaking programming on multiple screens. Three years on, our panel discusses the challenges faced by the funders, producers and creatives alike, and examines if CMF and Canadian production has achieved the targets and objectives that were initially introduced from the onset, or have the guideposts altered and are we still finding our way? What is needed for us to become a truly convergent creative community? Moderater Canadian Film Centre’s Ana Serrano asks panelists Valerie Creighton, President and CEO, Canada Media Fund, Alan Sawyer (Two Solitudes/Changing Channels), Alex Raffe, Thunderbirds Films (Digital Emmy Award winner for EndGame), J Joly (Overinteractive Media/CineCoup) and Michael Hennessy (President and CEO of the Canadian Media Production Association) what it takes.
