In 2022, the Co-Production Market and the Finance & Packaging Forum will take place in Montréal between July 21st and July 24th, 2022 as two separate events, in conjunction with the Fantasia International Film Festival.

The programme of events consists of roundtable strategy sessions and one-on-one meetings.
