Telefilm Canada and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) are looking to select a contingent of 20 export-ready independent Canadian game devs at the annual San Francisco-based conference (March 25 – 29, 2013) this year.

GDC is the world’s largest industry-only event dedicated to the advancement of interactive entertainment. In 2012, the GDC attracted over 22,500 game industry professionals including 150 companies from Canada.

This initiative, in line with Telefilm Canada’s new strategic vision Fostering Cultural Success, will support and showcase the selected companies during the conference. It is also aimed promoting Canadian talent in the interactive digital media industry.
