New this year

Telefilm’s financial participation has increased to $150,000 (from $125,000) for a maximum of 49% of the Canadian budget.

The Theatrical Documentary Program now includes an Indigenous Stream. Telefilm has set aside funding for projects by Canadian filmmakers from Indigenous communities. Additionally, the Rogers Group of Funds is no longer a partner of this program. Telefilm Canada would like to thank Rogers for their support over the last decade.
