Due to the volume of material we receive, we unfortunately cannot consider unsolicited material (ideas, concepts, scripts, pitches, outlines, treatments, screenplays, etc.) that does not come via an agent, or via another production company with a recognised production track record in the industry. The purpose of this policy is to avoid any potential misunderstandings if anything we develop or produce seems the same or similar to your original work, as many works and submissions are based on the same or similar ideas. We will not be held liable for any received material (or sections thereof) which may be similar or identical in theme, idea, plot, format and/or other respects to other original works (or sections thereof) which we choose to develop and you will not be entitled to any compensation because of the use of any such similar or identical material. If you are a writer and/or director in Canada, you will need to find a recognized agent to submit your script on your behalf. If you are first starting out it is best to approach junior agents as they will be looking to expand their portfolios and therefore more likely to pick up new talent. If you are a writer and/or director from outside Canada, you will need to find a recognized production company in your own country with a recognised production track record in the industry to submit your script on your behalf.
