Industry Advisory - Telefilm Canada announces National New Media Decisions for 2009-2010

Montreal, July 21, 2009 – Telefilm Canada is pleased to announce that 56 new media projects have been selected to receive financial support through the Product Assistance component of the Canada New Media Fund (CNMF).

The projects selected represent a wide range of platforms and genres – from console games and convergent projects, to independent websites and applications for mobile devices.

Independent websites and applications designed for mobile devices (iPhones and PDA’s) received the majority of support in the Western region; console or handheld-console games and independent websites fared very well in Ontario & Nunavut; regional funding in Quebec focused on console or handheld-console games and independent websites; and in the Atlantic region console or handheld-console games and applications for mobile devices received the most support.

The diversity of projects submitted demonstrates the tremendous growth of the industry across the country. Telefilm has been essential in helping Canadian content producers develop many of the properties that help contribute to the 52,100 jobs the industry generates in Canada1. Every dollar invested by Telefilm Canada through the fund on behalf of the Department of Canadian Heritage generates $3.58 in the sector.

The CNMF is a unique program that provides funding for private sector entrepreneurs. The national program supports the creation and the distribution of interactive cultural content products through: Product Assistance, Sectoral Assistance and Sectoral Development.
