Pablo Salzman and Cineflix Media Inc. announced today the launch of Connect3 Productions Inc., a new company focused on co-productions for the North American and international markets. Salzman will take on the role of President at Connect3, which will be backed by Cineflix Media.
Connect3 will work with independent producers, writers, and showrunners, connecting their projects with the right platforms and broadcast partners.
“Connect3 responds to the needs of a changing market. Our mission is to build a community of creative partners to develop and deliver first-class content,” said Pablo Salzman, President, Connect3. “Connect3 already has a strong development slate including scripted and factual projects, and we’ll be announcing more details in the coming months.”
Connect3 joins Cineflix’s existing joint venture line up which includes Duncan Gray’s Twenty Six 03 Entertainment and Tony Wood’s Buccaneer Media.
“We’re excited to be backing this new venture,” said Peter Emerson, President, Cineflix Media. “By collaborating with like-minded entrepreneurs we’re building a strong global network for content creation and distribution.”
Previously VP, Commercial Affairs at Cineflix Media, Salzman fostered deep relationships with creators, broadcasters, and OTT platforms. He successfully tapped into Canadian funding sources to leverage the commercial potential of dozens of projects. He also played a key role in developing ancillary revenue streams such as licensing, merchandising, and companion apps.
Most recently, Salzman led the creation and implementation of Cineflix's International Development Initiative for Quebec Content. At Connect3 he will continue to oversee the initiative which promotes the adaptation of French-language scripted series and formats created by Quebec producers for the English-speaking global market.
