Telefilm Canada announces production funding for eight French-language feature films

Telefilm Canada is announcing that eight French-language feature film titles are receiving funding under the Production Program (applications submitted between February 7 and 21, 2022), for a total of $5.5 million.

An advisory committee of external and internal representatives assessed the projects and made recommendations to Telefilm. The decision-making process took into account Telefilm’s goal of fostering a diversity of voices in the industry, ensuring that Telefilm funds a balanced portfolio of productions that reflect a variety of genres, budgets and company sizes, regions of the country and points of view.  Names of selection committee members will be published on the Project Financing Advisory Committees webpage once all funding decisions have been made. More funding decisions will be announced in the coming weeks.
