The Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative is pleased to announce Telefilm Canada’s Micro-budget Production Program for 2013-14, with the addition of an Aboriginal Component for our Aboriginal content creators.
This program targets emerging Canadian talent, supporting them in the production and promotion of their first feature-length film, with an emphasis on the use of digital platforms for marketing, distribution and audience engagement.
Telefilm will support between eight to ten projects through the main component, and up to three projects in the Aboriginal component. Support will be through a non-repayable financial contribution of up to $120,000 per project.
Projects to be submitted to Telefilm for evaluation will be recommended by a diverse group of industry partners, including the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative.
Please Note: The Filmpool, as one of Telefilm’s industry partners, will be allowed to submit only one candidate for recommendation.
Filmpool Production Members are encouraged to visit Telefilm’s website for information on the program, eligibility and application guidelines: http://www.telefilm.ca/en/funds-and-programs/micro-budget-production-program
