What’s new: New measures to promote diversity
Montreal, February 15, 2017— Clients are invited to submit their English- and French-language lower-budget projects (budgets of less than $2.5 M) to the Production Program for fiscal 2017-2018.
Opening date: March 1, 2017

New measures to promote diversity
All projects submitted under this program will be evaluated through the lens of reaching Telefilm’s objective of obtaining a representative and diversified feature film portfolio that better reflects gender, cultural diversity, and Canada’s Indigenous communities.
The first step in attaining this objective will be to prioritize projects directed or written by women to ensure that we reach our 2020 goal of a portfolio that reflects gender parity, while also continuing to champion and support the works of Indigenous creators and members of communities representing Canada’s cultural diversity.
Apply using the new online platform
