Telefilm Canada's Calls for Entry

Navigating the International Festival Circuit

Telefilm Canada encourages the development of an international festivals strategy for Canadian productions by publishing calls for entry that will inform you of the relevance and impact of an event in their territory and on the international festival circuit.

We also actively promote and facilitate the selection of Canadian productions by working in close collaboration with the heads of key international events. Screening sessions are held in Montreal for major international festivals such as Cannes, Berlin, Sundance and Venice. For a number of other key events, Telefilm coordinates the submission of screeners from Canada.
