The sponsorship will include RBC House, a venue for film and industry events, which will also feature the RBC Music Night and an interview location called the Los Angeles Times Studio presented by RBC, among others. In addition, the RBC Foundation and RBC Emerging Artists will sponsor the 2023 SeriesFest Pitch-a-Thon, an event during which content creators can pitch ideas to media executives for feedback. Other elements of the sponsorship will include the TIFF Every Story Accelerator and the RBC Red Carpet Gallery.
