Industry

The Shaw Rocket Fund is an important sponsor of the annual Kidscreen Summit, a dedicated conference for children’s media content creators, broadcasters, and distributors that attracts global industry participation.

The Canadian Screen Awards celebrates excellence in film, television, and digital media every year, and the Rocket Fund was there in 2017 to sponsor Family Fan Day during awards week.

In conjunction with the 2017 Banff World Media Festival, the Shaw Rocket Fund sponsored and organized a Producer Development Program that provided seven emerging Canadian producers new to the kids/family space with a festival registration and one-on-one access to experienced industry executives.

The Shaw Rocket Fund is proud to sponsor the annual Youth Media Alliance Awards of Excellence and associated conference.

Top media companies from around the world attend and, in order to create focus on Canadian producers and their content, the Shaw Rocket Fund hosts round-tables with international commissioners and sets up multiple networking opportunities during the events.
