What do you mean by a professional credit?
The purpose of this program is to connect with individuals who have, for the most part, not participated in the mainstream funding landscape to date.
- Is completed outside of film school or an industry training opportunity;
- Was financed using mainstream funding sources (such as Telefilm Canada, Canada Media Fund, broadcaster or online subscription services licensing etc.); and
- Subsequently either played on a broadcaster or online subscription service, was released theatrically, or toured extensively through major film festivals.
Projects that were primarily self-financed (credit, loans, crowdfunding sources etc.) do not need to be counted as a professional credit.
