The Canada Media Fund (CMF) and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) announced an investment of over CAD$136,000 to support the co-development of audiovisual content under the Canada-Ireland Codevelopment Incentive for Audio-Visual Projects.

Three Canadian production companies will work with other three Irish companies in the development of “#IBelieveHer” from Plausible Communications (Canada) and Pembridge Film (Ireland) that it will receive $14,700 from Canada and $29,000 from Ireland.
Other projet is “Craic House” from the Canadian company Cedar Island Films and the Irish O'Sullivan Prod that will receive $25,804 from Canada and $20,500 from Ireland. The last one is “Where the wild geese go” from the Canadian production company Stitch Media Ontario and the Irish El Zorrero Films that will receive from $25,000 Canada and $21,700 from Ireland.
Inspired by true events, “#IBelieveHer” reconstructs the testimonies of the so-called ‘Irish Rugby Rape Trial’ within the context of the media circus that divided a nation. “Craic House” is a 6-part half-hour comedy series about the trials and errors of life in one’s twenties–a time of experimentation, heartbreak, disaster, and delight. With a special focus on engaging kids, “Where the wild geese go” invites Irish and Canadian school children along for the ride as they explore the natural world via a truly unique multiplatform project.
