Second Opening Date: **Due to a high demand for the English Regional Bonus program, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications from producers who wish to receive funds as part of this program.
The Canada Media Fund’s mandate includes support for funding to production across the country. As such, the CMF is renewing its English Regional Production Bonus for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.
This program is part of the CMF's Convergent Stream; thus, projects funded through this stream must include content to be produced for distribution on at least two platforms, one of which must be television.
To access funding a project must meet all requirements set out in the 2016-2017 Guidelines. Only applications that meet all requirements will be considered.
