2013-2014 Production Program – Telefilm Canada announces that all funds assigned to French-language projects with budgets over $1.5 million have now been allocated
Montreal, May 3, 2013 – Telefilm Canada wishes to advise its Production Program clients that all funds assigned to French-language projects with budgets of over $1.5 million have been allocated for 2013-2014.
The Production Program was opened to French-language projects with budgets of over $1.5 million on October 29, 2012. Due to the implementation of a new faster decision-making process as part of our Program Redesign initiative, the funds assigned to this portion of our clientele were allocated sooner this year compared to previous years.
For 2013-2014, 13 French-language projects with budgets of over $1.5 million received funding from Telefilm for a total investment of $11.5 million.
Even though all funds available have been allocated, we invite you to stay in touch with Marie-France Godbout, National Director, Feature Films – French Market at 514-283-0838 for any French-language production under way or in preparation. To ensure more efficient management of future projects, we also recommend that all our French-language market clients discuss their production project with Marie-France Godbout before submitting a formal application for funding.
