INDUSTRY ADVISORY – ATLANTIC REGION
CANADA FEATURE FILM FUND
December 21, 2006 – Telefilm Canada’s Atlantic regional office wishes to advise the Atlantic Canadian feature film industry that development resources through the Canada Feature Film Fund for fiscal 2005-2006 have been fully allocated.
In 2006, the Atlantic regional office reported a record year of feature film development activity. The office received and evaluated more than 50 applications requesting a total demand of $1.5 million, and approximately 50% of those projects received support.
The past year has been an active one for the Atlantic Canadian film industry, resulting in many promising projects in the development pipeline; two films currently in post-production (Dallaire: Shake Hands with the Devil and Pushing Up Daisies) and tentatively scheduled for release in 2007; and the national success of Trailer Park Boys: The Movie.
On February 26, 2007, the office will begin to accept feature film development and Writer’s First applications for fiscal 2007-2008.
