Telefilm Canada’s Micro-Budget Production Program targets emerging Canadian talent, supporting them in the production and promotion of their first feature-length film, with an emphasis on the use of digital platforms for marketing, distribution and audience engagement.
The program is comprised of three different components:
- Main component
- Aboriginal component
- New! Official-Language Minority Communities (OLMC) component
There is a two-stage application process:
Prospective creative teams, with their project, must apply to one of the diverse groups of designated partners for this program (see lists below). Each designated partner recommends one project to Telefilm Canada for consideration.
At the end of the Recommendation Stage, Telefilm will issue an invitation to the projects eligible to advance to the Application Stage. These letters will be sent to the designated partners.
For projects invited to apply, the applicant then applies to Telefilm as a corporation using eTelefilm (see List of Required Documents below).
