Telefilm Canada Micro-Budget Production Program

“The Telefilm Canada Micro-Budget Production Program is without a doubt, modest in size, but big in inspiration. It allowed me to write, direct & produce my first feature while granting me full control. It is an excellent way to launch a career, get exposure in the industry and reach audiences.”

- Maxime Desmons, 
What We Have (CFC 2012 Partner Submission
)

The Telefilm Canada Micro-Budget Production Program is open to ALL CFC alumni who meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • The producer and director have not produced and/or directed a feature length film (i.e. 75 minutes or more), but have produced and/or directed at least one short film (i.e. 30 minutes or less)
  • The producer applying has to be CFC alumni, from any of our programs, labs or initiatives. However, a non-CFC alumni producer can apply if they have a CFC alumni committed to the project in either the writer, director roles or even as a mentor producer/exec-producer capacity (a mentor producer/exec-producer must have produced at least 1 feature).

Eligibility Criteria for Projects:

To be eligible for the Micro-Budget Production Program, the project must be:

  • A dramatic or documentary feature length film with a non-traditional distribution plan, for more than one platform and with a strong digital/online strategy.
  • Script must be fully developed. However a fully realized creative concept that is not script based will be accepted (visual storyboards, treatment for “improvised” project).
  • Creatively innovative feature projects are encouraged.
  • The project’s maximum budget must not exceed $250,000.

APPLICATION PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED
