New ongoing application process for Market Research and Prototyping
Telefilm is progressively implementing a new ongoing application process for Market Research and Prototyping beginning mid-August 2006. Decisions will be rendered within the usual target of 8 weeks from receipt of a complete application.

This approach is intended to respond to the industry's request that producers be able to submit projects when they are ready, as opposed to on a pre-determined deadline date.
