I am a mid-career or experienced filmmaker that does not identify within one of the targeted groups. Will there be funding for me through the Domestic Motion Picture Fund?
The Domestic Motion Picture Fund will be administered through several targeted program streams, to ensure intersectional support across all phases of a project, genres and formats, between emerging and experienced content creators, and equitable access for under-represented groups.
This is just the first program of several to come. We felt it was important to acknowledge the systemic barriers our identified equity groups face by providing targeting funding; the first of its kind for the province of British Columbia.
Rest assured more programs ARE coming, including support for mid career and experienced filmmakers, whether they identify in a racialized group or not. We are aiming to share a more complete picture of the different programs that will come out of this investment by Spring 2021. We appreciate your patience through this process.
