The Canadian Film and Television Production Association has announced that it is rebranding, with a new name designed to ‘better reflect the multi-screen world and the future of our industry.’ The new name, the Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA), functions as a recognition of changing times and modes of media production and distribution, says Norm Bolen, president and chief executive officer, CMPA. ‘The global shift towards digital technology and new forms of distribution means we have to change with the times. The new name embraces the opportunities for our members to create new partnerships and expand into the international market place.’ Tom Cox, managing partner of Alberta-based SEVEN24 Films, has been appointed as the new chair of the CMPA and will lead the rebranding effort.
