Dear Filmmakers and Television Producers:
JAMPRO through its Film Commission will participate in this year’s Toronto International Film Festival in September. The Film Commission will be seeking investment for Jamaican film, animation and TV shows in development and various stages of production. In addition, the Commission will showcase completed film and TV products seeking distribution and broadcasts, as well as promote Jamaica as a location for films and television. In this effort, we plan to meet with film producers, distributor, potential investors and international film business.
