Speed Meetings with Buyers

Advance sign up is required via lottery, see networking page for more details. There will also be a waitline on site for additional meeting spots.

BANFF’s Speed Meetings with Buyers are a fantastic opportunity for content creators and producers to meet one-on-one with leading program buyers and funders. This is your opportunity to connect with partners who can help take your screen-based project to the next stage.

Specifically designed to be eight (8)-minute time slots, with a two (2)-minute transition time between meetings, this program has facilitated thousands of partnerships and has led to millions of dollars in new content.

Some meeting hosts will require masks to be worn. Notes will be added to the hosts' table cards where this applies so that you may prepare before you sit down. As per the Banff World Media Festival health & safety policy - Subject to change, delegates will also be encouraged to wear a mask in all indoor event spaces. Delegates must supply their own masks.
