OMDC Takes U.S. Production Execs on A Familiarization (FAM) Tour

To compliment the busy production season, the OMDC’s Film Office recently hosted a FAM Tour in July for nine top post-production and visual-effects executives representing leading film and television studios. The group met with many Ontario-based post and visual effects stakeholdĀ­ers to investigate creative partnership opportunities.
