Telefilm Canada announces an interim initiative for Anglophone creators in Quebec that received support through Feature It!

Montreal, November 29, 2011 − Telefilm Canada announces an interim initiative to ensure its ongoing support to creators from official minority-language communities.

Following the launch of its new corporate plan in April, one of Telefilm’s priorities was to initiate a complete redesign of its programs in order to simplify and optimize its processes and to ensure a better alignment between its programs and its new strategic priorities.

This process is progressing faster than expected, and we realize that the renewal proposal made to the industry advisory committee is not completely aligned with this redesign.

Before making a decision on the future direction of Feature It!,Telefilm is proposing an interim measure to maintain its support to creators and to help advance projects already begun over the past four years.

Applications must be submitted via the eTelefilm online service on or before Monday, January 16, 2012.
