MUSIC MAKES IT will be a forum through which executives from the interactive digital media, technology, advertising, feature film, documentary and television industries will connect with executives from the music industry who own and administer rights to the hottest Canadian talent. Participants will explore ways to merge their content, to the creative and commercial benefit of each sector.

Interested companies from these industries are invited to submit an application to participate in MUSIC MAKES IT.


The deadline for applications is Monday, October 17 by 5:00pm.  Selected participants will be notified by October 20, 2011.
