Canada Media Fund
The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and Film Fund Luxembourg (FFL) have reopened the Canada-Luxembourg Codevelopment and Coproduction Incentive for Audiovisual Projects. The annual combined budget of the Incentive, now in its fifth consecutive year, is CAN$800,000 (approximately €600,000), with each organization contributing half.
Projects funded at the development stage must be drama or animated series, feature-length animation, or digital media projects. The Incentive also funds eligible digital media projects at the production stage, specifically in the areas of virtual or augmented reality, transmedia, or new technologies.
The total maximum combined contribution for each funded development project (television, animated feature film, or digital media) is CAN$100,000 (or approximately €65,000), and the total maximum combined contribution for each digital media project at the production stage is CAN$500,000 (or approximately €320,000).
A committee of CMF and FFL representatives will evaluate all eligible projects according to a set of criteria, including the cultural value of the project, the target audience, the team track record, and the feasibility of the project. All applications must comply with the Incentive Guidelines, which are available on the CMF and FFL websites. The deadline for applications is November 9, 2022 and the committee’s decisions will be announced in mid-December 2022.
The Canada-Luxembourg Codevelopment and Coproduction Incentive has provided $3.3M in funding for 12 codevelopment and coproduction projects over the last four years.
