About the Program

Since 2012, through our International Marketing Program, we have supported 257 participations of Canadian productions to festivals and events, and invested close to $3M to help hundreds of Canadian talents be discovered on the international scene.

In 2016-2017, we increased the number of projects supported by 51% and increased the money allocated by 35%. This is the result of our October 2016 program expansion announcement that included 34 new international festivals, increased financial assistance to short films, and travel grants to producers invited to participate in international coproduction markets.

With the most recent additions to our Program, we continue to encourage the promotion, the development and the export of Canadian culture.
