November 15 & 16

Playback Film Summit offers 300+ pre-set one-on-one and curated group meeting opportunities, in addition to hundreds of serendipitous online meetings with industry leaders who can move your projects, and career forward.

Speed Meetings

*advance sign-up is required


Speed Meetings are a fantastic opportunity for producers to meet one-on-one with leading film agents, buyers, distributors and financiers. This is your opportunity to connect with partners who can help take your film project to the next stage.

144 pre-set one-on-one Speed Meeting opportunities will be available during the two days of the Film Summit. All meetings will be seven (7)-minutes long with a three (3)-minute transition time between sessions. 

Sign-up period:
October 24, 12:00 PM ET - November 9, 5:00 PM ET

How to sign up: Only registered delegates can sign up for Speed Meetings. Each delegate will initially be able to sign up for two (2) Speed Meeting sessions and one (1) Standby Spot. These sessions are first-come, first-served and might fill up quickly. If that's the case, keep checking back throughout the sign-up period - sessions could free up if people switch or drop out.

Buyer Profiles will be available for review ahead of the sign-up period to ensure you know what each 'buyer' is looking for, get insider tips on the buyers’ current mandates and ensure a good match with your work.

If you don't get a one-on-one Speed Meeting spot - or if there’s someone else you'd love to meet with - there are hundreds of opportunities available to connect with potential partners, funders, distributors, agents and buyers via the  curated group meeting opportunities below. These sessions are "drop-in" with no advance sign-up required.

Chat Rooms

*advance sign-up is NOT required

Join our hosts for small group conversations to discuss important topics facing today’s industry and make meaningful industry connections. Each Chat Room follows a topical panel or session. We strongly suggest attending the panel prior to the chat room to ensure a robust conversation.

Watch the agenda for more details on the timing and hosts for these sessions.

Case Studies

*advance sign-up is NOT required

Pull up a chair in the virtual lounge to hear the backstory of a number of recently released successful Canadian film projects, both large and small + participate in an interactive Q&A and discussion in the post-session Chatroom.

Watch the agenda for more details on the timing and hosts for these sessions.

Speed Networking

*advance sign-up is NOT required

Join us in the virtual lounge to be matched for five (5)-minute speed meetings. These networking sessions are designed to maximize interaction with potential partners in a short time period during each of the chat sessions.

+ Unlimited Meetings on our Virtual Platform

For two months following the event, all delegates will have unlimited opportunities to connect, chat, screen projects and set video meetings via the Playback Film Summit on BANFFXchange virtual conference platform.
