What is CBDFM
The Canada Black & Diversity Film Market - (CBDFM) is an industry market content summit event held each year as part of the Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival (TINFF) annual programs in late September.
This historical event will bring industry stakeholders from Nollywood, Africa, the USA, and across the Globe to Canada attracting thousands of people expected to attend the annual event to collaborate on future projects, network and sell, finance, and acquire black films.
The Canada Black & Diversity Film Market (CBDFM) - Content Summit is anticipated to be the most efficient film acquisition, development, and networking event in the world. As part of the TINFF annual festival events, The CBDFM is a film market summit where production and distribution deals are closed.
In the coming years, we anticipate more than US$1 billion in deals expected to be sealed every year — on both completed films and those in the development stage of productions.
The CBDFM as part of the Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival - TINFF events in Ontario will increase film production collaboration and opportunities between Canada and the Nollywood film industry, the world's second-largest film industry, giving all sides a significant advantage of being able to network, share resources, cross distribute and promote films relating to a part of the festival’s audience who belongs to the African and Nollywood key market demographic.
Proud to bring inspirational speakers from across the globe
