The CMF-Distributor Pilot Predevelopment Matching Program is an initiative spearheaded by the Canadian Association of Content Exporters in collaboration with the Canada Media Fund which strives to help support Canadian television projects intended for international export by encouraging early collaboration between qualified distribution companies, writers and producers.
For clarity, a distribution company is a distinct company whose activities and resources are overwhelmingly devoted to the distribution and sale of film and television properties and not merely a component of a company set up for some other primary purpose (e.g., broadcasting). Therefore, for the purposes of this Program, Canadian Broadcasters are not eligible as Canadian Distributors.
