Canadian content creator and distributor Cineflix Media has announced that it will be backing Connect3 Productions — a new company focused on copros for North American and international markets.

Run by Pablo Salzman, former VP of commercial affairs at Cineflix, Connect3 will work with indie producers, writers and showrunners to connect their projects with the right platforms and broadcast partners.

Cineflix’s current joint ventures include UK-based prodcos Twenty Six 03 Entertainment and Buccaneer Media.

“Our mission is to build a community of creative partners to develop and deliver first-class content,” said Salzman (pictured), president, Connect3, in a statement. “Connect3 already has a strong development slate including scripted and factual projects, and we’ll be announcing more details in the coming months.”

As VP, commercial affairs at Cineflix Media, Salzman has experience fostering relationships with creators, broadcasters and OTT platforms. He has tapped Canadian funding sources to leverage the commercial potential of various projects and also has experience developing ancillary revenue streams such as licensing, merchandising and companion apps.

Most recently, the Salzman led the creation and implementation of Cineflix’s International Development Initiative for Quebec Content. Salzman will continue to oversee the initiative at Connect3, which promotes the adaptation of French-language scripted series and formats created by Quebec producers for the English-speaking worldwide market.
