NEW CANADA FEATURE FILM FUND GUIDELINES FOR 2007-2008

Montreal, February 13, 2007 - Telefilm Canada is pleased to announce the launch of new asymmetrical 2007-2008 guidelines for the Canada Feature Film Fund's (CFFF) main programs: Development, Marketing and Production.

The 2007-2008 CFFF guidelines are specifically designed to reflect the unique realities of the English- and French-language markets; in some areas of the guidelines, differences in the two markets have resulted in asymmetrical policies for each linguistic market.

In October 2006, Telefilm announced key changes to the Canada Feature Film Fund for both the English- and French-language markets. These changes, now in effect for 2007-2008, are the direct result of consultations with the French and English CFFF Working Groups. (Please see http://www.telefilm.ca/data/Communiques/rel_743.asp and http://www.telefilm.ca/data/Communiques/rel_742.asp )

Please take note of the following information:

  • Resources within the Development and Production Programs are first allocated on a linguistic basis: one-third for French-language and two-thirds for English-language applications.

  • Telefilm is currently working with the CFFF Working Group to clarify the Development Guidelines for the English language market with respect to the program's goals and objectives, as well as the decision criteria applied by Telefilm. It is anticipated that an updated version of the development guidelines will be posted in early 2007-2008. For the moment, the 2007-2008 guidelines have been extracted from the 2006-2007 guidelines which continue to apply.

The 2007-2008 CFFF guidelines are now available online on Telefilm's Website.
