From Page to Screen
This event has been created to promote the adaptation of Canadian fiction, non-fiction and children’s literature published by Ontario publishers to the big and small screens. It will provide a forum for film, television and interactive digital companies to meet with the publishers in one-on-one scheduled meetings.
NEW FOR 2022!
Welcoming the World
Ontario Creates is excited to announce that From Page to Screen 2022 is returning to an in-person format at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)!
For this international edition of From Page to Screen, we're looking forward to connecting Ontario publishers with screen producers from Ontario and around the world.
Onstage Pitch Forum
A selection of titles that have the strongest adaptation potential will be presented by Ontario publishers to TIFF delegates and selected From Page to Screen attendees. This will get the conversation started in advance of the one-on-one meetings.
