The mandate of the Canadian Music Caf矩s to showcase Canada矩s vibrant music scene to film and television industry leaders from around the world. In doing so, the Caf矩s now the crossroad where respected and influential taste-and decision-makers can network with Canadian artists, managers and labels to collaborate on the music/movie synthesis.

2009 marks the fifth year for the Caf矡nd this year we have a superb crop of artists showcasing for three days. Caf矡rtists have had great successes with film and TV placements over the years and we are excited by this year矡s attendance of at least 12 Music Supervisors who work on American and UK productions.

Some of artists that have showcased at the Caf矩nclude City and Colour, Martha wainwright, Thunderheist, Jill Barber,Buck 65, Ron Sexsmith, Chantal Kreviazuk, Jorane, Sarah Slean, K矩naan, Jully Black, Molly Johnson, DJ Champion, Kid Koala, The Trews, Stabilo, The Russian Futurists, Keshia Chante and Mobile.

矩The success of the Canadian music industry depends on its ability to export the products of its abundant talent outside of Canada. Nothing speaks to this more than the recent successes of Canadian musical artists in North America and in other offshore markets,矩 said Duncan McKie, President and Executive Director, CIRPA. 矩Whether for use in film or as standalone recordings, Canadian music is one of the singular successes as a cultural export. The Canadian Music Caf短akes such success possible by bringing together our best talent with foreign buyers who are anxious to use Canadian talent in their productions. It is vital that we continue to support these and other initiatives that bring Canadians face to face with this market.短

I’m on my way down right now.短 Check out this years lineup, its pretty solid.
