The Production Program gives companies financing assistance for the production phase of their longer form projects – whether a scripted feature length film a documentary a factual one-off, or a series. B.C. resident individuals or B.C.-owned and controlled production companies can apply for grants of up to $150,000 that cover a variety of activities.
Production budget items that qualify include crew wages, production design, costumes, live sets and studios fees, as well as those for technical finishing and editing, supporting B.C. filmmakers to ready their projects for broadcast, sale and distribution. Developed in close consultation with industry, program guidelines are now published and available on the Creative BC website.
