Paling noted that Canada has treaties with many Asian countries, which could drive collaboration.

She noted that North American and European producers are also looking beyond their borders in search of funding so they are looking for opportunities to help get their stories told.

Paling said that summits such as FILMART are essential for producers, who take on many different roles, to find the right specialists in Asia to help them along the way.

"It is really important that producers, when they get involved in these kinds of international summits, you know, working together in co-productions (is) that they really do get to learn where they're going and who they're working with and spend time meeting their collaborators and the partners," said Paling.

"Because it really is going to be a business relationship that they need to enter into and they have to work together. It's a little bit like dating. You know, get to know each other because that's going to only make it better," she added.
