Opening dates for the Industry Initiatives Stream of the Promotion Program

03 May 2023

Telefilm Canada is announcing the opening dates of the Promotion Program’s Industry Initiatives Stream, which provides funding to support pre-approved Canadian activities that have previously received funding through Telefilm’s Promotion Program between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2023.

Opening dates:

  • June 5 – 23, 2023: for activities starting between October 1, 2023, and March 31, 2024
  • November 6 – 24, 2023: for activities starting between April 1, 2024, and September 30, 2024

The Industry Initiatives Stream is aimed at Canadian audiovisual industry activities such as national film, television and digital media awards ceremonies, alternative distribution networks and audiovisual industry conferences, as well as training activities including business or professional development activities focused on training, mentorship, promotion and talent.

Canadian film festivals are no longer funded in the Promotion Program, but through two separate programs, either the Medium-to-Large-Scale Festivals Program or the General Admission Program.

Applicants can refer to How to Apply on Telefilm’s webpage before applying through Dialogue.
