Our free Industry Panels create networking and professional development opportunities for emerging and underrepresented filmmakers and storytellers.

Stay tuned for our 2019 Reelworld Industry Panels! Panel information will be posted in September 2019.


2018 Industry Panels

Our focus in 2018 was on FILMMAKERS, WRITERS, FUNDING, and THE PITCH. Each stream featured sessions with industry leaders through case studies, panels, and talks.

Sponsored by the DGC, WGC, and Telefilm.

The LeaP

What does it take to breakthrough to the next level? Join Charles Officer, Cory Bowles, and Joyce Wong as they share what allowed them to leap from shorts to first feature, from shorts to directing TV, and from directing Canadian TV to US TV.  Moderated by Film and Industry Programming Manager Allison Wilson-Forbes.

Roobha Case Study

A very special case study with Dan Lyon, Telefilm Regional Feature Film Executive for Ontario and Nunavut, Lenin Sivam (writer/director), Warren Sinnathamby and Raji Nair  (producers) about the development of Roobha, the first Canadian feature to explore a young transgender Tamil’s experience.

The Showrunner

Showrunners truly are the creative force driving a television series.   Join Producer Joan Jenkinson as she talks with three vibrant Showrunners and Creators on the scene today: Marsha Greene (Mary Kills People, The Mighty Quinns); Ins Choi (Kim’s Convenience); and Samantha Wan (Second Jen).

Fund your Project

Industry Programming Coordinator Andy Marshall talks with Inspirit Foundation, the OAC, Ontario Creates and the Toronto Arts Council about new Funding Programs; developments and trends from a funder’s perspective; tips for grant applications; and how to stay informed of funding opportunities.
