The Saskatchewan Motion Picture Industry Association (SMPIA) is excited to announce that we will be shining a spotlight on Saskatchewan interactive and traditional media partnerships at the Banff World Media Festival June 10-13th, 2012. Thanks to a Culture on Go: Market Access Grant from the Saskatchewan Arts Board, SMPIA will lead an industry delegation of Saskatchewan cross-media professionals to showcase their works as well as meet with creators and investors as part of the official Banff Festival program.

The goal of this delegation is to highlight Saskatchewan cross-platform media products at the Banff World Media Festival (BWMF) in order to gain investment and exposure for Saskatchewan talent. SMPIA wants to show off the brightest and best cross-media projects and companies from Saskatchewan to industry experts from around the world!

Members of the delegation will be determined through a pitch competition to be held at SMPIA's Multi-PlatFORUM 2012 on March 27-28th in Regina. Two projects, each comprised of a team made up of one Film/TV company representative and one Interactive company representative, will be selected by a jury of cross-media professionals from across Canada to be part of the official delegation. Each presentation will receive immediate feedback from the jury and official delegation members will be announced on March 28th at the event.

Members of the official delegation will join SMPIA to present their projects as examples of innovative cross-media as part of a panel at the Banff World Media Festival. They will also participate in receptions and meetings arranged for the delegation at the event.

Don't miss this chance to present your latest cross-media project to this high profile jury and potentially represent our province in Banff!
