Regional Pre-Development Program
This innovative new program is a partnership between Creative BC, the Canada Media Fund (CMF) and the Canadian Media Producers Association-BC Producers Branch (CMPA-BC), through which BC-based producers will be eligible for up to $30,000 for the early stage development of children’s, youth and scripted drama projects for television.
The total budget for the Program is $400,000 with the CMF, Creative BC and the CMPA-BC all contributing. This is the first time the CMF has partnered with a provincial funding body and the CMPA, recognizing the strength and reputation of BC’s industry.
Applicants that are selected to receive funding in this Program will have one year from the date of contracting to submit the final deliverables for their projects. Eligible activities include research, script development, hiring a scriptwriter and travel to pitch or market a project.
Applications for financing via this Program must be submitted by March 11, 2020.
