Telefilm boasts of increased foreign sales for Canadian film and television

MONTREAL - Telefilm Canada says homegrown TV and movie productions gained a greater foothold in foreign markets last year.

The federal agency says Canadian producers and distributors landed $17.6 million worth of sales and pre-sales in 2009.

That’s a 26 per cent increase over the $14 million earned in 2008.

The figures are part of Telefilm’s 2009 International Markets Report and include sales achievements by the dark feature, “Blindness,” co-written by Don McKellar.

It looked at how Canadian companies fared at international markets and festivals including the Berlin Film Festival, MIPTV, the Cannes Film Market and MIPCOM.

Telefilm says it spent $1.2 million promoting Canadian talent through special pavilions in Europe and Hong Kong.
