July 23 FilmOntario Update

July 23, 2018

A quick summer update this week! Thank you to all of those who attended our Fam Tour Dinner on July 10th. Our L.A. guests had a very successful visit to Toronto and I look forward to seeing all the excellent projects that are made in Ontario as a result of this trip!

Canada Media Fund Updates
Cross-Country Consultations: The CMF will be in Toronto on October 2, 2018 as part of its cross-country consultation to gather input on how significant shifts in content consumption habits, rapidly-evolving market conditions, as well as policy and regulatory changes will impact the CMF’s funding programs, particularly in light of the government’s Creative Canada Policy Framework and the recently-launched review of the Telecommunications and Broadcasting Acts.

A full list of dates and locations, as well as registration information, can be found here.

Canada-Ireland Codevelopment Incentive for Audiovisual Projects: This program, offered in partnership with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), provides up to $50,000 for television projects and digital media extensions which fulfill both the guidelines of the CMF and the objectives and themes of BAI’s Sound and Vision Scheme. Full guidelines can be found here; the deadline to apply is September 28, 2018.

Call for Applications - OMDC Film Fund
The next deadline for the OMDC Film Fund is October 2, 2018.

This program provides support to Ontario producers for feature film projects in the final stages of development and production financing. The Film Fund also provides enhanced support for films with diverse elements that meet the provincial definition of diversity.

Information sessions will take place in August and September. For the full guidelines, or to register for an information session, please see the OMDC website.
