Telefilm Makes Sustainability Plans Mandatory

Films selected for funding under Telefilm Canada’s production support programs will now be required to submit a sustainability plan before the start of principal photography. The requirement was announced in an industry advisory by the Crown corporation on Tuesday...

MPPIA Short Film Award is an industry initiative of the Motion Picture Production Industry Association (MPPIA), in partnership with Creative BC and the Whistler Film Festival Society. This award supports an emerging filmmaker to develop their directing career by realizing a unique creative vision in a short film project. The award consists of up to $15K in cash (Creative BC $5K, MPPIA $10K) plus in-kind services valued up to $100K from across the industry.

Established in 2007, The Award was founded to recognize and celebrate the contribution of film and television to the Province of British Columbia. The completed project screens at the subsequent Whistler Film Festival. This annual Award is possible with the generous support of British Columbia’s motion picture production community.
