29 October 2010

Montréal, October 29, 2010 –Telefilm Canada and the Rogers Group of Funds are pleased to announce the names of the French language feature-length documentary projects that will receive funding support under the Theatrical Documentary Program in 2010-2011. Participating filmmakers will receive funding support for the production or post-production stage of their project.

The goal of the Theatrical Documentary Program is to broaden both the slate and audiences for Canadian feature-length documentaries produced for commercial screening in Canada, while jointly financing a number of French- and English-language projects likely to be successful in Canada and abroad.

“The projects selected this year once again attest to the ingenuity and talent of our Canadian documentary filmmakers,” said Michel Pradier, Director of Projects Financing at Telefilm Canada. “These documentaries stand out due to their originality and we are confident that they will do well in theatres,” he added.
