China-Canada Gateway for Film Competition Nets Hopeful Connections
on December 03, 2012
The China-Canada Gateway for Film Competition, part of the Whistler Film Festival in Canada, has been making strides in helping Canadian filmmakers team up with Chinese film production studios. News over the weekend revealed that the campaign has become a significant success already with at least eight filmmakers in talks to team up with Chinese production companies. The contracts could be worth as much as $5 million.
Said WFF managing director Jane Milner, "We set out to be a gateway between Canada and China for the film business and I think we've done that," she said. "My goal is that if you want to do business with China, you have to come here."
