Producers Lab Toronto (PLT) is a Canadian-European co-production forum delivered through a partnership between the Toronto International Film Festival, European Film Promotion (EFP), and the Ontario Media Development Corporation.

Producers Lab Toronto gathers experienced feature-film producers from across Canada and Europe for three days of industry programming at the start of the Toronto International Film Festival. In 2013, PLT welcomed producers from guest countries Australia and New Zealand to broaden the range of co-production possibilities. The objective of Producers Lab Toronto is to discuss projects, build knowledge, strengthen relationships, and support partnership-building for the financing, production and distribution of Canada-Europe and guest country co-productions.

Producers Lab 2013 took place September 4–7 in Toronto, taking advantage of the presence of the global film industry in the city to create a platform for the promotion of PLT participants and their projects. A total of 24 producers were selected to participate, ensuring an informal and highly engaging experience.

Congratulations to this year's selected participants.
