The Canadian Creative Accelerator (CCA) is an initiative of the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service at the Consulate General of Canada in Los Angeles. The initiative aims to increase the scope and global reach of Canadian television, film, music, and new media productions. Geared towards the US market, the CCA is aimed at emerging and established companies who are ready for international growth.
This iteration of the CCA will launch in January 2022 and is geared towards feature film producers looking to close the financing gaps of their current projects via US or international partners. The primary goal of the program will be to secure additional financing for participant’s lead projects.

This cohort is open to Canadian production companies that meet the following criteria:
  • They have a lead project that is a narrative feature in advanced stages of development or pre-production
  • Project must be intended for feature length with a runtime above 70 minutes
  • Project should have at least 75% of funding secured and looking for partners to close the financing gap. Projects with less than 75% funding in place may still be considered under extenuating circumstances
  • Lead projects must not have already pre-sold 100% of distribution rights 
  • Projects in any or multiple languages are eligible
