Telefilm will be tapping into Parrot Analytics’ suite of audience demand measurement products to make data-driven decisions across a movie's lifecycle, from concept funding to post-release distribution.

From a film’s initial reception in the festival circuit to its theatrical release, followed by paid platforms and TV broadcasts, this tool offers insights that will inform our program strategies and initiatives. Enhancing our collaborations with the industry, this data will further our understanding of audience segmentation and travelability, playing a crucial role in the success of Canadian and Indigenous cinema," noted.
