The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and the Danish Film Institute (DFI) have announced the renewal for the fourth year in a row of their incentive for the co-development of digital media projects between Canadian producers and Danish producers.

The Canada-Denmark Co-Development Incentive for Digital Media Projects budget is set at CAN $300,000, with each partner investing half of the total amount.

This Incentive will support the co-development of new digital content that is innovative, explores new ways of telling stories, experiments with new formats and platforms, and new ways of engaging audiences. The project must involve at least one Danish producer eligible under the DFI’s criteria, and one Canadian producer eligible under the CMF’s criteria.

All applications must comply with the guidelines for the Incentive which are available on both the CMF and DFI websites. The deadline to apply is December 14, 2020. Recipients will be announced in mid-February 2021.

Twelve interactive digital media projects received over $800K in funding through the first three rounds of funding of the Canada-Denmark Co-Development Incentive for Digital Media Projects.
